Toothpick Art from the local jail

The carcel artist is branching out into another art form. This time they are utilitarian. Even though we sold almost all the Origami baskets and figures he's hoping things you can use will sell better. The cutouts in the lamp shade project images and the napkin holders have a drawer for toothpicks. Pretty cool and I sold one napkin holder today to a neighbor.

Lamp with drawer - 450 pesos

Napkin and toothpick holders - 100 pesos


The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
