It's been a crazy few months!!!

Wow- let me tell you! What an amazing last few months... I've been a busy time for sure. Just a few moments for recap:
  • Llaves Designs housed a booth at Maker Faire NYC and assisted almost 600 kids, parents and a few adults without kids who just wanted to make a mess.  It was such a great day that we actually took home a blue ribbon! We were Maker's Choice!

  • Years back I was asked to write a how-to-make-pinatas for BUST Magazine and I guess they put me in their anthology of crafters!!! WOOOHOOO! I haven't seen it yet but am excited to visit them at one of their book tours.

Now That's One Way to Have a Birthday

M&M's Pretzel's had a birthday party and decided to make a 46 foot pinata, now being the largest pinata ever created.  I am disappointed they did not find a giant to hit it open but am happy they chose to make it orange.

Humpty Dumpty Sat on a Wall...

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall...

So I missed out on something this weekend for lack of knowing and lack of time... there was a Massive Mad Hatter Tea Party in Thompkins Square. I have been obsessed with Alice in Wonderland for years so this would have been one sight to see and I can play one good drunk mouse.

What does this have to do with pinatas you ask, well it turns out some mastermind created a Humpty Dumpty pinata!!! Check out the recap over at Bowery Boogie.

And to refresh your memory on what a meanie Humpty was, check out the true story here.

More Pinata Related Marketing

Is it just me or is the weird "khaki kinda hispter kinda finance" guy that Dairy Queen chose as a new spokesperson really creepy?

Cat's Can Even Enjoy a Good Whack!

Recently, my lovely former neighbor back in Chicago sent me this clip and well, it just made my day!  I also think I might just start making Cat Piñatas and shipping them full of homemade catnip...

Also, I watched this with my assistant and she was just amazed at how fun it looked. Silly is really looking forward to making Cat Piñatas.

Look at all the weird things you can do with a Pinata!

So Pepto Bismol has this very strange ad campaign about Cinco de Mayo and lots of videos where they do nontraditional things with pinatas.... check it out here:

I can't say I fully understand it but I do enjoy the guy with the harness and salsa filled pinata.

Making 2011 the Year of the PINATA!!!

Oh yeah! It's true! Check out the giant one I made for a local party here in New York- Ke$ha should have ordered from Llaves Designs rather than hitting up the local drug store, why an Easter Bunny?

Regardless, this year is the year it all comes true!
