Calaca Love

As my witchy cinnamon broom above my front door suggest welcome to my contribution to Marfi-topia's Haunted Humpday. I've been dying to display and show off the skully jewelry I've been creating. The earring set is part of the purple skull set. I already posted these Frida inspired box top heads in a previous post but this is all about calaca love so I wanted to share them again. Fall is pressumed to be the settle down cozy time but around here my schedule has taken on many new tasks. Can I get a hip hip huzzah, I was hired at a magical Artisan Fantasy Portrait Shop inside the Texas Renaissance Festival!
 Happy Haunted Humpday Y'all 💀

Fall Flower Power

If you follow the earth and its patterns as do the people of the old ways, fall is here. The calender in my book does not predict the change of seasons but as the witch in me would say the turn of the wheel. Here in my neck of the woods even though it is still 90 degrees and humid, the leaves are changing their hue and falling. Varieties of bugs, birds, and their songs are of a different rhythm, things are starting to shift. I can actually say in mid September that I survived my first Texas summer. I am ready to change the indoor decor to reflect the outdoor atmosphere and the new moon in Virgo has me creating and crafting.

All of these items used to craft are Dollar Tree finds except for the vine wreaths which I hooped from my yard. The Calaveras { skull heads} are actually tops to boxes, a few flowers and wallah ode to Frida! Almost had a panic attack when I couldn't find my glue gun when inspiration sparked. I hung the crafts on the wall to take photos and the Hubby said he loved the color and ambiance. So for now they will be left up in the dining room and front door unless a booth or craft  fair opportunity arises then I will sell the handicrafts. On a recent tromp through the Renaissance grounds I spied many gypsy carts and told the Hubby to check out the structure of them in hopes he will one day build me one to sell my wares . He is after all my Renaissance man in the respect that he can build and create anything he puts his mind to. All in due time as the saying goes. What creative projects and endeavours are blowin your way?

Sneak peek at the Tex Ren Grounds

So this weekend I ventured out and did a little something different than usual, I went to the Texas Renaissance Festival job fair. It was very exciting to learn that when I moved here to my new town that it wasn't very far from one of the biggest Renaissance festivals in the U.S. Although no call backs have been received on a position at the fair I'm excited to show you a little sneak peek of the grounds.

I wish I had brought my camera to get better pics but all I had was my Metro phone. Hopefully I will be attending this year to bring you live views of the fair. If you are inclined check out Texas Renaissance for more details. Now I'm off to do some Fall crafting, I feel the urge to change the indoor decor sooner than I expected.
