mud tacos announced

No, I haven't joined a Mario Lopez fan club. But I am quite personally invested in his latest project. I just found out that there's a little article about it in a recent edition of Publishers Weekly.

Here's a little excerpt:

Actor Mario Lopez, host of EXTRA and America’s Best Dance Crew, has become the latest celebrity to pen a children’s book. Along with his sister Marissa Lopez-Wong, he has signed with Celebra Children’s Books, a Penguin imprint, for a picture book called Mud Tacos!, which will be published on October 15. Maryn Roos, who did the artwork for Whoopi Goldberg’s Sugar Plum Ballerinas, will illustrate, and Steve Meltzer, associate publisher and executive managing editor of Dial and Dutton, will edit the book.

tarot card charms

Last year as I was hunting for Day of the Dead decorations for my big party, I ran across an amazing Frida Kahlo charm necklace, and had to have it. A few months ago, I was thinking about this year's theme (fortune teller) and thought it would be cool to have a fortune teller charm bracelet in the same style.

The jewelry-maker was happy to make one for me, and it arrived today. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. So if you are a fan of charm bracelets, check out Lulu's eBay store: Lulu's Lovely Loot.
