♥  2015 Second annual MJ's Lanterns of LOVE will be held in the same place as last year.  Lanterns will be placed in the sand on the south side of the pier. Look for the beach restrooms and swings we will be located half way to the water on the beach. Write your message of LOVE on the Lantern for the event and then take it home with the LED lite for a memento ♥ or if you choose to, as many did last year, pay it forward to someone who can not afford a lantern.

Lanterns can not be sold to the fans on the beach so they will need to be purchased ahead of time via Paypal (instructions below).

Luminary lantern's for this Santa Monica event includes the decorative, die cut, flame retardant, luminary lantern and an LED light.
The price of each Lantern is $5.00. This covers the cost of each lantern + the led light, the shipping charged at the time I purchase them, taxes, Paypal fees, and Paypal's conversion fees.

There are 100 lanterns left from last year. These will be used and any other purchased this year will be added to this number. 

Feel free to purchase a lantern and be represented at this event where ever you live!! Add your short one line message with your paypal payment and it will be added to your lantern.

MJ Glittery Tattoo Meet & Greet 2015

                               ♥ All that Glitters... is MJ ♥

There was a really nice turn out for the Glittery Tattoo Event today! Even though it was early in the week there was a nice showing of MJ Fans who joined in the event. Kent Twitchell was our special guest and it was such a pleasure meeting and talking with him about his time with Michael. His respect and appreciation for Michael as a person and an artist is enormous. He kindly sat with the MJ fans and answered questions and shared about his experience working with Michael and his time at Neverland while they worked together to create the Smooth Criminal mural. Thank you so much Kent.

We are all looking forward to seeing this incredible mural installed on the wall facing the 405 freeway at the Courtyard Marriott. It will be a day to celebrate!!

Please take a look at the photos from the event...
