I can't say that I've worked a whole lot more than my usual 40hrs, but each day has been busy from start to finish with trying to help stranded people on the west coast of Mexico after hurricane Odille hit about 10 days ago.  Busy days like that, leave me tired and want to stay away from the computer.  So I haven't blogged a whole lot.

I can't say that I've made a whole lot things either.  Two weeks ago an accidental encounter with a friend inspired me to make cards.  It was probably time to take out a pad of pretty paper I got on sale a year ago.  
And a letter that I received in the mail from another friend, inspired me to write and send a handful of my own.
I started adding the dress cards on Etsy.

Crafty Chica

There is a successful crafter in my city, a talented lady that I'd like to call a friend, or at the very least I can say that I know her and she knows me.  Her name is Kathy, aka Crafty Chica.  She has a new product line and she's recently made appearances at various Michaels stores in Arizona, Nevada, California (and Texas I think) to promote her products.
I visited with her when she was at my local Michael's store.  I bought some pretty papers she had, as well as iron-ons sugar skull and more.  I used the paper and made a couple of ACEOs with it.

On my trip to Portland a couple of weeks ago, I picked up a sheet of Loteria table with great images.  Ghost, devils, know....the colorful Dia de Los Muertos images.  A few days ago, after a coat of paint over some matchboxes, the little images on the sheet I had were perfect fit to go over the little boxes.  

So I asked my dear friend and co-worker, who is from Mexico if the Hispanic grocery stores carry them.  And they do.  There are three Rancho Market stores within a mile from my house.  Yes!!  I will be looking for more Tablas de Loteria.
