Pati Aguilera's Delicious Illustrations

Chilean illustrator Pati Aguilera combines delicious recipes for food and drinks with adorable artwork and whimsical typography. Her blog, Cositas Ricas Ilustradas, is filled with recipes that are playfully illustrated and functional–each one features different characters enjoying a dish and the ingredients and instructions to make it.

So if you're looking for some lovely artwork to add to your kitchen, a new recipe for dinner, or a chance to practice your Spanish (no English instructions here!) check out Aguilera's blog (you'll find a lot of Chilean recipes too)!


A Luchador Birthday Party

Have you seen Nacho Libre?  It's one of my absolute faves.  It always cracks me up!!  We recently watched it here at the shop for a movie night while we made luchador masks.  How cute would it be to have a birthday party where you (or your little one) made felt luchador masks and served these cupcakes?! Host a party at home or here at Casa Artelexia!  Visit our events page to see the various party packages that we offer.  Want to make your own Luchador cupcakes?  DIY by Lovely Indeed can be found here.  Enjoy!
