Mary Altar


"Mary Entre Las Rosas (Mary Among The Roses)" Altar ~Sold~

I had so much fun creating this Mary altar! I love that her arms are outstretched, as though she's bestowing her blessing. She stands on a wood shelf that I hand painted and embellished with 3-D roses. I added candle cups that hold small candles, and they create such a pretty glow behind Mary.



I also got some great news this week! I was accepted into the "Blue Genie Art Bazaar", a juried holiday show that lasts for 3 weeks in December. I sold out at the show last year, and it was such a fun event! For the next two months, I'll be hard at work stashing away inventory for the show, while staying on top of my Etsy shop - phew! This means that I won't be taking anymore custom orders for awhile, as much as I'd love to do it all, I have to realize that I'm a one woman show. ;)
