What Does Spanglish Arte Mean to ME?

About a month ago I was asked to participate in the creation of this video:

Spanglish Arte... from Spanglish Arte on Vimeo.

Happy to be part of the Spanglish Arte familia! :)

After Dark

I've been doing a lot of spray painting recently with my jewelry. I thought it would be semi cool to show me doing some guerrilla spray painting after dark! ;)

Something Old

I picked up this old flashlight last year at an antique fair in Placerville while I was hunting for things to go with my Steampunk costume. It's actually produced by Winchester (looks a lot like this 1930s model)! Since it was missing it's internal mechanics, I added a watch face with a few sprockets & cogs from other older pieces along with some leather & lacing...and voila! I have a cool old piece for my costuming!

Okaaayyyyy... I had way too much fun with this one! I started off in Capitol Park then ended in Old Sac. I was taking so many pictures that my phone died on me & I didn't get all the shots I was going for! Oh well, can't win them all! Hope you like my Sacramento Sunset!

In my Bag

I actually switched bags today just so you wouldn't see all the crazy things I usually carry along with me! This is an average sampling of things I usually have on my person. Keys, cell phone, head phones, lotion, lip gloss, lip stick, brush, gum, Ricola, mints...Purse made by my lovely & talented friend, Amanda, and her mother for my birthday! Wallet made by my mom! :)
