GhettoGloss Fare Details

Popsicle joke of the day:

What do skeletons say before they begin dining? A: Bone appetite!

Good morning ladies, dolls, daddy-os, freakshows and creepshows!

Be forewarned! Although since you are already here you're stuck so... be notified as the case may be. I will probably post this numerous times in the next coming weeks. Kind of like a countdown! Fun, huh?

I have finally FINALLY finallllyyYYYY (Break into song and dance) made it to a half-way point in my interstate move. If you can call it a move that is. It's more of as opposed to the prior custody agreement between CA and AZ where I twiddled my time, now NM will be added to the VIP list. I can't wait! More on that, Millie and the Etsy shop later...

So as some of you may know and as all of you SHOULD know, I will be attending the upcoming Ghettogloss Gallery's annual flea market art festival crafts and vintage ho down. I'm super excited! I have plans to take Felix (my RESIN cat skeleton so shut that jaw), some heavy maroon velvet curtains bound by ridiculously over sized golden tassels, lots of bats, roses and skulls, oh my! Hopefully it will be very a very gaudy grand presentation that is anything but cheesy and tacky. However that looks like it may be a very thin line haha. I will be shooting for more of a circus of oddities, old librarian cataloguing of specimens, french boudoir appeal as opposed to the many tick takidies that can arise from this type of booth.

Here's some details and some flyers:

(Additional different additional flyers, more pictures including those of merchandise that's to be sold there, and information to be posted in the upcoming weeks.)

East Side shoppers seeking the offbeat need not despair this holiday season, for the gals at Ghettogloss have heard their flea-market pleas. Every weekend through December 21, Silverlake's vibrant bazaar hawks everything from crafts to collectibles, and from designer pet wear to tarot readings. Located at the intersection of Silverlake and Glendale Blvds, the market calls out to artists, record collectors, vintage shoppers, and the frugal alike. And with a portion of the proceeds donated to the construction of Silver Lake's new library, there won't be any reason to feel guilty after buying yourself that gigantic homemade ceramic ashtray, even if you don't smoke. – Tanja Laden

Every Weekend from Nov 15th thru Dec 21st,Ghettogloss will be producing a holiday fair at the intersection of Glendale and Silverlake Blvd. Indie crafters will be showing their goods. There will be local artists mixed in along with the best of vintage collectibles, vintage clothing, and retro furniture. Did we mention plants, succulents, a Tarot card reader, tattoos, skulls, vintage, craft, clothing, art and a lady who does energy work on animals???? This is gonna be so much fun!

Yee-haw Muchachos! Kickin' it off with a BANG

Bang Bang!

So this is my first post and short of duct taping half my keyboard, I'm going to try to limit text and avoid rambling. I need to keep your interest without pictures of naked ladies or booze right? Let's save those for later.

So although this should be a blog about new beginnings, kindergarten introductions and nervous smiles I'm going to mix it up and just say Hi :) and make a few announcements instead.

I've been utterly consumed with custom orders which is so humbling, gives you that warm funny feeling and I can not thank everyone enough. All you dolls have such badass baby kickin’ ideas!!!

I've also been inundated with life and it's own debauchery and very dry sense of humor. I have FINALLY arrived back at my studio and was immediately football tackled with a foot to the mouth by my paints demanding to know where I've been.

I gave them all some cookies and got to work and now all seem to be pleased. For what it's worth the whole while I was utterly consumed with thoughts of getting back so I could work on orders. Hopefully soon, VERY SOON (10/6) I will list the customs along with some others including:

My Inked-Up Homegirl Packin' Heat! Oh My Sweet Mother Mary!

Just like my mermaid I have a million more themes I'm aching to test out. I choose to give this one a "Love/Hate" theme with blood, knuckle-duster, straight razor, teardop, etc. The next I'm thinking is a "Rock/Roll" Mother Mary with maybe an Elvis portrait and some music notes. Any thoughts?

I also wanted to make an announcement about hopefully proposing an upcoming holiday sale. I was pleased as punch to see a storque article regarding supporting handmade this holiday season. Not only to starve the machine but in these times of economic crisis, what better knowledge than to know in return for something exquisitely made with love you are giving directly to a real person feeling the pinch as much as we all are.

So that's all for now. I'm sure we'll get to know each other much better as the clock ticks on. Feel free to drop me a line, check out my etsy shop and send me off towards any cool blogs or shops as I love checking out new diggs.

Peace, love and chicken grease.
(Anyone else experience that flashback?)
