* A Great Nicho Party

When guests come to stay from north of the border,  it's nice to spend an afternoon playing together.  When friends of mine found they were having friends of theirs come to stay, they thought a Nicho Party would be a great way to spend an afternoon.  This was a family outing.  Creating a wonderful remembrance from a Mexican Holiday and a very personal souvenir to take home.

It's always a great joy for me to watch children work.  They are so fast, so sure, and so happy.  Never a doubt or care.  Never a tense moment or stress anywhere in their body.   Never an inner critic to deal with.  Take note ...

Very Very Unfortunately .... my camera was not on the correct setting and everything is a little bit off ... well, let's face it ... a lot off.  Sorry for that.  It is a pleasure to share our afternoon with you anyway.  Hope you get a bit of Mexican flavor.

For those of you who came to my studio today, THANK YOU.  It was an honour to spend time with you.  I hope the Nichos you created today will always make you smile.

That's what I like to see .. two Dad's getting down to business.
She is Woman ... she knows exactly what she wants!

Jen's Nicho's always inspire me.  Don't you love the array of fire crackers at the top.  This is a 'hot couple'.  Makes me smile.

When you come to San Miguel, call me.  I'll design a Nicho Party just for YOU!

  2. your parties are the envy of all! Those kids did awesome...and the adults too. :0)

  3. It's very apparent all six kids had a great time at your nicho party. And, they must have learned a bit about the culture because I see some included "day of the dead" as a theme. The young children are darling and so fortunate to experience life in Mexico and your love and the warmth of your studio. YOU DID GOOD TEACH!
