I'll make an attempt to chronicle the transformation of a 1988 BLUEBIRD ALL AMERICAN school bus into a livable, workable motor-home/workshop. The plan was to detail events from inception to completion, however, you probably already know how that plan works out.
In any event, I'll post changes here as they happen and as time allows and whenever I remember.
Below are some of the items that are now available. If you are interested in ordering Christmas gifts, please order before December 15th to ensure delivery before December 25th.
Also, if you happen to be in the area we are roving, we now offer FREE individual craft classes where you can come to our shop and design and make your own gift creations and take them with you when you leave.
coffee mugs can do more than just serve you your morning Java. They
can say things in public that you may not be able to get away with.
People will read your coffee cup and may roll their eyes and smile or
huff and turn away. But if you were to say the same thing in public, then all
Hell breaks out.
Is on the move again. And this time the craft shop is in operation. I'll be making crafts and personalized gifts wherever I stop. I'll also be teaching free craft lessons. Imagine not just ordering that special coffee mug for your loved one but actually making it yourself. That will add just that special touch to your gift. I will keep you posted where I am. If you are in the area you can come out and take a free class. If you're not in the area you will be able to order custom made items on the internet and I will ship them to you wherever you are (currently only in the US).
This is day two of my mexican excursion sponsored by the Pink Store in Palomas Mexico. this day took us to the town of Mata Ortiz where the principal economy is pottery making.
Mata Ortiz is a small village in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico, less than 100 miles (160 km) from the US-Mexico border. The community is one of the designated localidades (localities) in the municipio libre (municipality) of Casas Grandes, one of several such pueblos in a wide, fertilevalley long inhabited by indigenous people. Mata Ortiz is located at the base of a mountain known as El Indio and on the west bank of the Rio Palanganas, a tributary of the Rio Casas Grandes. The ancient ruins of Casas Grandes are located nearby. As of 2010, Mata Ortiz had a population of 1,182.
This pot looks machine manufactured. The symmetry of the pot. The fine detail in the artwork. The artist, 30 year old Karla Lopez Cota, who has been making pottery since the age of 16 demonstrated the patience need to paint the designs with strains of human hair.
