Day of the Dead with a Catrina
Thank you so much for your support to my shop update!!! I added some new paintings too that I didn't show yesterday and I'm working on some other things as well, but that's not what this post is about. This post is about the Day of the Dead. It was all about Frida this weekend.
First we set up the Altar at my daughter's school. Only other 2 moms showed up but we managed to make a pretty good altar. I brought many of my Frida items from home.
I wanted to put some tequila for her but it's a kindergarten and it was not a good example for the kids :P
She got lots of natural flowers and I taught the kids how to make some paper marigolds ;)
We also attended an Altar contest in the local Museum where all the Catrinas from our group were exhibited.
And the teacher gave us 2 options for her clothes: Paper mache or Crepe paper. I went for the crepe. If I ever want to dress her differently I just have to remove her clothes and make new ones.
I hope you enjoyed the tour! I have some more news to share but I'll do it another day. I don't want to overwhelm you with so many posts :P
