As promised, here is more of the piñata list. I got as far as number eight. Number 8: The wedding cake is done and for sale in our ETSY shop. Number 9: Mark’s owl is almost finished. Isn’t it adorable? For some reason, I think he should be wearing tennis shoes. Number 10: Paula’s owl. Poor thing is still in pieces on the table downstairs. … Continue reading 20 Piñatas…Continued
Haha. Pinata… Busted. Nice play on words. Nope, I didn’t win the 20 Pinatas in 20 days challenge. Good thing it was just something I made up.

Here’s what we’ve got going. This frog is already for paint. He has a silly grin and is holding up his arms as if to say,”Go ahead, give it your best shot!” This is Mark’s … Continue reading 20 Pinatas in 20 Days – Day 1
I’ve given myself that challenge of completing 20 pinatas in 20 days and blogging about my progress. It should be fun to watch the pinatas come together. In a former life, I was known as the Pinata Queen. Mark and I both like making pinatas. Mark is especially good with 3-D projects and loves papier mache. Mark’s going to help me with my challenge. Since … Continue reading 20 Pinatas in 20 Days
