I received a very nice gift yesterday. My husband has a friend that is an artist and he was kind enough to send me two beautiful sugar skulls. They are both beautifully crafted, I feel very fortunate to have received the skulls. If you would like to contact the artist you can do so at firstname.lastname@example.org
Many artists in this area are preparing for Dia de los Muertos. Soon there will be displays in different parts of the city celebrating the holiday. Here in El Paso we have a small celebration with displays and many Dia de los Muertos inspired pieces for sale. Our school district also hosts a Day of the Day competition.
I think I'm going to create a few papier-mache skeletons this year. I'm so ready for the holidays to start rolling in!
