That's it! STUFFY"S!!!!! mmmmmmmmmmmmm My freezer was packed with Hatches when I lived there. That's the one main thing I miss from NM. I don't remember the other place you mentioned. Where was that? It's been about 16-17 years ago since I lived there. I used to waitress at the Sundance Saloon. I used to live up by there. I also miss the natural history museum. I used to take my daughter there on the weekends because we could get in for free and it was something nice to do. We couldn't afford to do a whole lot, single mom and kid so cheap was in the budget. Christmas time downtown was neat too with all the luminaria.. so beautiful.

I am up for a personal swap. Anything you want from Southern California?

Due to her camera not cooperating, I am posting pictures of what I sent to humboldtcherry.   Wink


Virgen de Guadalupe candle with added sparkle. She had mentioned that she liked iconography.


Figurine - this was one of those wedding ones that I kind of had my way with. It was the first one I had ever done & I wasn't happy with the way the face turned out.  Undecided


Bracelet - deconstructed and reconstructed to be much nicer.


My poor attempt at a shrine. ha ha This was actually the second one I did as the first suffered a horrible fate. The sacred heart & skull are poly clay made by moi. The other items are actually jewelry bits. I also used entirely too much glitter paint.


 

Then there were these Virgen de Guadelupe dish towels.
 

I neglected to take a picture of it, but I also included a small packet of Mexican hot cocoa.  Smiley

Too much glitter paint? No such thing! I think it looks great. And I love those Mary towels, and the candle!

There are SO many lovely goodies here, I am in complete awe!

I received my package from Kristl yesterday and it was full of Day of the Dead awesomeness. Grin

First, a bag of handmade/hand-decorated themed beads. Jewelry-making is one of my favorite crafty hobbies and I know I'll make good use of these. Wink



Next, an AMAZING shrine with painted skulls and flowers, handmade clay candles and pots of roses and two decorated crows/ravens at the very top. The details are just fantastic!



And finally, my favorite - a hand sewn skeleton stuffie. It's so fun and cute and intricate! I really love it. <3



Thank you SO MUCH, Krystl! Cheesy
