San Diego – we’re coming your way! Patrick and Maya will be joining me for a crazy, jam-packed day of crafty goodness at Artelexia this Saturday, May 13th! I met owner Elexia de la Parra several years back when I had a book signing in San Diego before one of my Crafty Chica cruises. We’ve kept in touch through social media, always talking about doing something together. For me, it’s been on my wish list to have an event at her beautiful San Diego shop! OMG, look at the interior in her store.

THIS is how you do Latin American imports – plus what really makes her shop all the more special, she really promotes and supports artists. You will find the coolest handmade and locally produced items. She has a gift for curation. It’s a talent to choose all those pieces and bring them together in a cohesive, exciting collection. It’s no wonder her business has become such a success. Her store reminds me of The Purple Lizard here in Phoenix, overflowing with all the things you didn’t know you absolutely needed.

Elexia is also a social media genius. Her Instagram feed will make your creative spirit drool.

Anyway, my daydream of taking over her shop visiting for a day moved from my wish list to my to-do list when we saw each other in March at the We All Grow Summit. We literally set a date in our calendars that night and I’ve been counting down the days!

THANK YOU to KIA for loaning us a Sorento so we can drive there in style. We’ll be picking up Maya on the way, so she’ll be joining us too! Patrick and I will have a variety of items for sale, I’ll be teaching two workshops, plus a book signing, a craft demo of my new Crafty Chica products and even a business talk for those who want some tips!

The workshops are $20 each. One is this book, plus a Mother’s Day card kit.

We’ll also make a picture bracelet and a ring! That class is $20 also. All supplies included.

Here are more details. Contact Artelexia to hold your spot for the workshops!

Hope to see you there!

  1. How delightful for you all! Elexia and her shop are so cool. She has been to Oaxaca several times with her Eat, Drink, Cook tours. Living in Oaxaca, I love to see her spin on restaurants, folk art and of course, cocktails! Have a great time in San Diego, my birthplace ????

  2. Bummed to miss you in San Diego, where we just were for 2 months. Hope it’s a great event for you. We might be moving to PHX area, which is why I have you on my radar. Love your work and your spirit. Looking to connect with creative people! Cheers.
