here's a little peek into my working process today: it all begins with the sticks
i usually enlist my joyful little helper to sort the bad sticks from the mystic. the energy a stick gives will predict which mobile to create. for instance, a desert themed mobile will have a bleached or light color stick, a whimsical mobile may have an arched or double branch stick, each stick helps me to bring out/envision the mobile's character.
this is for a large order so the sticks you see here are somewhat uniform in size
happy cinco de mayo week-end! we're celebrating early with tostadas for dinner...
