Another Art-a-Whirl in the books! This was number 12 for me and I am overwhelmed by the support for the Arts by Minnesotan’s 💛. Numbers came in at over 30,000 people that attended the crawl this year and I for one felt it. We had a steady flow of people @cgsolararts. Thank you to my tribe of collectors and supporters that follow my work and to the new people as well, your support means so much to all of us artists trying to make it out here. Thank you to my helpers- my boys, Taylor @taylor_hepner , Cynthia @cynwelle and my Sister @lizmartinez519 for helping me pull it all together! These shows are a lot of work, I’m so grateful to everyone involved. 💛💛💛. .

Spring: the perfect time to anticipate growth and celebrate rebirth! After a long winter of all going dormant we look forward to the buds of life starting to blossom and awaken not only in the plants and trees but also with in our hearts and minds and bodies. Hopes and dreams and intentions for this growing season and future harvest. Reflecting on the “darkness” we survived in the winter and making offerings of “flowers” with our ceremonies and actions in gratitude for new beginnings, healing and continued growth. These Xochitl(flower) rings symbolize this process and serve as a reminder that there is always light after the dark. That every spring we too get to be reborn and have a new chance to blossom and grow. I love wearing mine to remind me! Thank you to everyone who has ordered one of these special rings. And to @vero19 who owns this very special piece. I really love the stone you picked out! 💛💛💛

My day was so full I didn’t get a chance to compile and post some pics of our day! We spent our day with some of my favorite mamas💛💛💛Happy belated Mother’s Day to all the mamas doing the hardest job out there. 💛💛💛I’m so honored to walk this path with so many amazing people who are mothers not only because they carried a child in their womb, but more importantly because they choose to do the work of mothering. Thank you to my Tomasito y Mateo- My Son, my moon and my stars. They are my reason for everything. Thank you to my tribe of family and friends who help make this journey a little lighter. We all need, love, help, support, consejos, and encouragement to do this job of raising children. I’m so grateful for you! 💛🌺🌷💗🌞🌜✨

I could probably stop making everything else and just make my signature Papel Picado Earrings. They seem to have magical powers as they look amazing on everyone and bring so much joy the the people wearing them. Every pair so special and unique because each stone set is different and made with so much love. They are also surprisingly light and comfortable to wear. A personal favorite for sure 💛. .

I’m overwhelmed by the out pour of love, excitement and kind words from everyone about this custom piece I created for @therealmikeowens Mike to give to his lovely wife @wendieoful Wendie to wear at the @televisionacad Emmy’s last week. They went on to win the Emmy for the hit animated kid series @dangerandeggs on Amazon! I wanted to share with you some of the steps behind the scenes to create this special piece. From sketches to completion. As in any Art the magic is often in the process. The connections we make between materials, ideas, and hopefully with the people who enjoy the art itself. There are many steps in my personal work process- these are just a few highlights. Thank you again Mike for this opportunity. ✨

So something pretty exciting happened right before the Art Crawl that I didn’t get a chance to post about. An awesome local Artist Mike Owens @therealmikeowens Co- Creator of the Amazon hit Series @dangerandeggs contacted me to create a custom piece for his beautiful wife @wendieoful Wendie to wear to the Emmy’s!!!!! He brought me a special ring he purchased for her years ago as an engagement ring in India. He asked me to use the special stone from the ring In this custom piece. We picked out labradorite stones to incorporate that would compliment his stone perfectly and I went from there! After sketching out some designs in my signature papel picado ( Mexican folk cut paper art) style. We both agreed this was the perfect fit. I’m so proud to share these photos they took with you and to announce that Danger and Eggs won the Emmy!!! Congratulations @therealmikeowens and all the people behind this great animated series for kids! Thank you for thinking of me for this very special piece for your wife - it was an honor to make it💛. .
