I love Halloween and every year I teach my students about the Day of the Dead. I also am very inspired by Mexican art and the art of El Dia del los Meurtos. Skeletons srround me right now so... that means for me that I have been making a great deal of skeleton art! Here are a few I have finished and sent off to others!

Jeremy and I had a wonderful time in California this weekend. We went for his brother Donny's wedding. The wedding took place in a garden behind a restuarant called the Secret Garden.
It was a perfect day... so many sweet little touches that made the wedding so special. Everyone was to write a word that represents marriage on a small stone. Instead of a unity candle, they each poured a vase of sand into a bowl. Eveyone came up afterwards and put their stones in the sand.
My gift to them was this old window frame. I cut up an old quilt to create their family tree behind the window. I was happy with how it turned out . They are expecting a little girl in January.
We also went to Knotts Berry Farm Halloween Haunt while we were in California! I LOVE Haunted Houses, so this was a dream come true!
This is a picture I took of a monster, as I was taking it another one jumped out at me......
The night was full of haunted mazes, freak shows, and monsters jumping out at you in a dark foggy amusement park! I loved it!!!!!
