artisan bazaar

in our little town, there have been many events this year so far. friday was the first

artisan bazaar

and of course, david, my handy camera, and i were present! we got there a little late, so we couldn’t see many of the artists, just a few. we promised that next time we’ll get there earlier. (and take more cash to buy everything!)

our local artists are amazingly good! i didn’t know we had so many hidden gems out here. it was really good to see that. it made me happy that our town gave them the chance to show their art to the community.

again, we only caught a few artists, (and to others i was too shy to ask for a picture), but i couldn’t resist to share with all of you what we saw! here are some pictures with the people that created those awesome art pieces:

to get more information about the artist, you can click on his or her name to go to their page :)

this woman had the most original idea: she made embellished post cards!

here’s what i mean:

you can write behind them and send them without any  problems :) the art of handwriting letters is dead, but vintage things are always cool. just imagine getting this  beauty on the mail? <3

i wanted to buy everything! not to send ’em, but to have them in frames. these are too pretty to not see daily.

if you’re mexican, don’t her paintings just bring back childhood memories of playing loteria at your grandma’s house? cuz that was exactly our reaction! loteria is a mexican game similar to bingo. just that instead of numbers and letter being called out, cards with images like the ones she has painted appear. the carta, playing card, she had there was my favorite!

this guy’s art was amazing! it was like mythical creatures and forests. he had a little bio on the table that said that his work has been features in many countries.

we know that there are still more local artists out there who are really good at what they do. if you’re one, i really encourage you to showcase your work like this. even if you don’t sell it, you give it exposure :) the art scene in our town is growing, and for you to be a part of it would be awesome!

farmer’s market: valentine’s day

david and i aren’t the kind of people to celebrate valentine’s day. just not our thing. however, when we found out the farmer’s market was going to be that saturday, we decided to go out:) (also he had a gig that night – went well btw! people had a good time!).

our farmer’s market is not that big, but we like it. it is held downtown in a little historical plaza once a month. the people are nice and there is always a lot of delicious mexican food.

we got there early so there weren’t many people; thus we got to comfortably enjoy every booth. this time we also invited grandma and my sis to join us. they really liked it! especially my grandma, who went crazy buying flowers and herbs and veggies– the main reason why i took her.

here are some pictures from that day!
