Happy Birthday Frida Kahlo: Frida Art Doll Class Details

Wow, where is the time going? My goodness, it has been almost two weeks since I last blogged. I swear, I felt like I just blogged a couple of days ago.

No worries, it has been all good around here at Casa Manzo. My day job (Real Estate) has been off the hook these past couple of weeks. Dominating all my time. In between work, I celebrated my regulator's birthday in San Francisco. If you get a chance do check out "The Slanted Door" at the Ferry building. Awesome food, drink and scenery. Awwww Good times.

I also attended Gay Pride a two weeks ago with a group of friends. It was my first time in attendance, and let me tell you, the people watching was off the hook! I also got to snap some pics of Cloris Leachman and Ongina!

Last weekend, was my niece's graduation party. Not only was she top 10 in her high school, but she got accepted at Harvard! WOW! I am so happy and proud of her. She is a beautiful soul.

Ok, enough about my daily activities.


Oh how your spirit moves me. I remember back in the 70's when I went to my first Frida Kahlo exhibit. I didn't know you, but was a big fan of your husband. Wow, did that change up in an instant. Your determination, humor and passion and pride has captured all of us. I so wish I could have hung out with you to shoot the chit about your homies.

In your honor, I am hosting a class at the Santa Clarita Craft Lab with Cyndi Garcia.
We will be painting fabric dolls of your likeness. We will also be embellishing and making your signature dresses.

Mixed Media Fridas

All supplies will be included. Artistas are welcomed to bring their favorite fabrics and embellishments. Cyndi will also have specialty embellshiments available for sale.

Not only are we making dolls, but we will also be having a birthday party in your honor. We will have cake, goodies and all the artistas are asked to dress or wear their makeup and or hair in your honor.

There will be a drawing for a prize for all the Frida's who show up.

Here is a pic of me and my brother in law a couple of years ago.

The class is this Saturday, July 11th. cost is 35.00 per person. Seating is limited and I believe she already has the class half full!

Contact Cyndi at the Santa Clarita Craft Lab for more details! (click on link for contact number and class time)

The next day I will be teaching a mixed media class at CJ's Angels. I'll post the details in a separate blog.

You can also see more class info. on the right of my blogspot.

Oh, I so can't wait. I am going to get to meet a lot of my online homecheezes!

Orale and Viva Frida Por Vida!

Yes, July 6th was her birthday and I of course forgot. I shouldn't forget because my step-mom's birthday was July 6th as well. Sounds like your classes are really taking off. I hope you have a great day and you look great as Frida.:) Take care.
