Dia de los Muertos: Eye Candy and Sugar Skulls

A little eye candy from my Day of the Dead art making adventures . . .


A couple of ATC's I made for a Day of the Dead themed
swap on Swap Bot . . . with pictures that I took in Oaxaca last year.


The ofrenda or altar I made for my home . . . a place to honor
my late father and grandparents, and the late loved ones of my guests.


and here's me dressed as a Frida Kahlo calavera . . .



for the Day of the Dead procession and last Thursday
art opening on NE Alberta.



Friends came over on Dia de los Muertos to decorate sugar skulls . . .



Here are some of the results of our efforts . . .



I'm lovin' the creativity . . .



Check out the rose gripped in her teeth!


And this one still in process . . .

It's a wonderful holiday that allows us to honor our loved ones who have
passed and be so creative all at the same time!

Holy cow! It took me several scrolls to notice that the cool DotD Frido Kahlo was actually: YOU! Seriously awesome costume.
