A Fabulous Frida Craft Party

This past weekend we hosted the most fabulous Frida crafting party!!  Birthday girl, Mariel, went to town on making her own mexa-themed decorations.  This girl is super talented.  All of her guests wore their best floral dresses, flower crowns and over-sized jewelry.  It was a true Frida fiesta!!

Happy Easter Weekend!

Decorating eggs was always one of my favorite Easter traditions as a child.  My mom would set out the wax crayons, dye and eggs, and we'd spend hours decorating them.  How I miss being a child sometimes.  This year I was bound and determined that I would decorate my own eggs once again, Mexa-eggs that is!  I just used markers and acrylic paint pens - super easy and zero mess. What do you think?!  Wishing you all a Happy Easter weekend with your loved ones.  

Easter Piñata Making at Casa Artelexia

Last weekend we had so much fun making Easter themed piñatas at the shop.  What was supposed to be an hour and half class turned into 3 hours of piñata making fun!!  These littles and their mamas made such cute chickadees, bunnies and even a Pikachu.  Yes, Brayden was determined to make a Peep/Pikachu.  Look how great it turned out!  Happy Easter Weekend!
