¡Feliz Día de los Muertos!

November 1st, 2009 by maryjojo | Filed under art journal, crafts, project.

Wow it’s already November!  How time flies when you don’t notice.

¡Feliz Día de los Muertos!November 1st means Day of the Dead!  Woo hoo!  Not only do you get a day to dress up in a cool costume but the next day has more celebrations!  I dig the decorations for today’s holiday.  I finally got to my DOTD skull today.  Quite fun and relaxing to doodle with bright colors on a pure white skull.  It’s even better that I finally had energy to do something.

Last week was c¡Feliz Día de los Muertos!razy.  Being sick for practically the whole week but not having the same symptoms as Jeff made it difficult to realize that I was sick.   Jeff felt ill on Monday and I think I finally gave in on Wednesday.  I’m not sure what type of flu it was but it sucked the energy right out of doing anything except for sleep, eat, and drink.  I’m glad that it’s finally gone and definitely happy it was before we go to San Diego in a few weeks.

San Diego will be interesting as I think we’re going to Disneyland with young niece and nephew.  I’m unsure if it really has been settled that we’ll be going to Mickey’s house but I know we’ll be going to a concert for Edgar Winter.   That’ll be a hoot!!  It’ll be good to take some time off.

I’ve also signed up for a few online art things.   One is for the whole month of November.   Everyday, I will be doing something artsy.  It’s called Art Every Day Month by Leah [ Creative Everday].  I stumbled upon it today and thought it would be a great kick-off to my other art thing: { 12.31 } by Dawn DeVries Sokol [ D'Blogala ].  It’s all about documenting the holidays through creating your own journal and something other things that I haven’t heard yet.  The project starts on November 6th and goes to the end of December.  I’m excited.

So today’s skull design is brought to you by my first day of ADEM.  Enjoy.
