Catrina Creation Lives

I write and break things, bake sweet things and dream of books. I get my heart broken, sneeze at flowers and pet dogs.

Before calaveras and sugar skulls were kitschy, they were part of the Mexican folk art I grew up around and with. The colors, the intermingling of faiths, and what appears to be a cluttered mess to others, to me is what adds to this folk art. Mexican handcrafts and folk art is a complex collection of items made with various materials and intended for utilitarian, decorative or other purposes.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Returns and exchange details
All my items are handmade, diy. I upcycle, recycle, re-use and invent and incorporate anything I can find into items. The mixed media prints and art work are my work. The zines contain work by individual writers and all rights are retained by the authors. Hand made items are handmade. If something arrives damaged, send me a convo so we can work on it. I try my best to represent the items I have up for sale, if you are unsure of anything, or have any questions about an item, please ask me before making your purchase. I am happy to answer any/all of your questions!

Vintage items, items made with reclaimed items are not new-and might have imperfections. If you’d like additional photos before purchasing, let me know.
I take feedback very seriously.

These art pieces are unique and not returnable once they have been delivered.
