12 Steps to SELF Care.


I TRY to live this everyday, and need to follow these rules specifically.... Some days its’ easier, and others, I fail, BUT, my faith lifts me and all I need to do is find my INNER peace and stay in tact within. I’m an open book to anyone that wants to read me. I have been through Hell, up and down, and all around, and if you don’t know, just ask. I’m not afraid to tell my story. NO ONE should EVER be. It’s what makes the person who has gotten yourself THIS far on this path. EVERYONE has demons they are fighting, past, present and/or future. It’s inevitable, but is ALL about how we Act afterwards. What MAKES us. It’s not what we’ve been through, but how we are formed after the fact. Sometimes, the following “RULES” Just Slip away, without my knowledge, and others, I’m as happy as Bob Ross’s Hair Pik. Ha!

Here’s what you be needing to get started!

*A Carvable Fake Pumpkin

*Fake flowers of your liking
*Glue
*GLITTER
*Glue gun
*Plastic Creatures

*Wire Cutters for flower stems

**OPTIONAL**

-Fancy rhinestones / flat backs
-Feathers

-Fake web
-Glitter glue pen...


Oh, yeah... and Munchies and Wine are a MUST!

Lets get it all started!





Here we go!

Grab your pumpkin and start cutting around the top, like you would a Real Pumpkin.








Start adding your glue, then sprinkle glitter, in a "DRIP" pattern around the opening.



Add another layer of GLITTER if you'd like....


GET YOUR GLITTER ON!!!!


My Friend Anna Getting DOWN!


Add Your Critters with a glue gun.

Gee Whiz "HOMIES" Casita RE-VAMPED!




I collect “HOMIES”...


Both alive and Toys ;)

I found this little beat up house at a thrift store

and thought it would be the PERFECT housing unit to display my little 
Vato Locs.


Spray Painted and Glittered..... MEXICAN Flag Colors... and added some choice "Cholo/Vato/Chicano" motif to glue onto the background for extra spicy Flava! I chose, 
Carlos Santana, Mi Vida Loca, Blood in blood out, War, and the lowrider logo.

Get Ready... SET, VATO!


LOCO, FIRMÉ!!

NO Casita is Complete without some Rico MEXICAN FOOD! I made this little plate out of Sculpey Clay and baked it! I Dig on the Little rolled Tortillas!!!



Oralé! Now they are stylin' and Profilin' with the Best of em'!
