EL CHAVO DEL OCHO – CUSTOM ORDER

This custom character inspired order was truly nostalgic for me to make.

I actually remember watching this show as a kid growing up in Mexico. El Chavo del Ocho was a sitcom from the 70’s about a bunch of kids (played by adult actors) who lived in an apartment complex and did lots of mischievous things to their adult neighbors. Then in the 80’s it became Chespirito and finally in 2006 an animated version called El Chavo was launched. If you get a chance to catch an episode, you should watch it (it’s also available in English).. It’s hilarious!

MICKEY & MINNIE INSPIRED FAVORS

Custom character order for twin’s 1st bday party. These were shipped in the middle of hot July all the way to New Jersey and thanks to our super cool insulated packaging they made it in perfect condition.

GIRL POWER!

Not only were these super fun to make but they were also very special to me. When I was younger my sister and I used to play with our little Powerpuff Girls toys. She was Bubbles, our mom was Buttercup and I was Blossom :)

At the time of deliver, when the birthday girl saw them her eyes opened soooo wide and she was ecstatic. Her whole face lit up with a huge smile and happiness. That is always our goal, to go above and beyond to see the “wow” reaction of our customers. She truly made it all worth it and it reassured me that my art is beautiful!
