I have never celebrated “Day of the Dead” really and I saw Mary Stanley’s
blog , marystanley.blogspot.com Art Spirit. She does such fabulous shrines that I began thinking about it….
Many thoughts of my Mother have been swirling around in my head.
I even made fried squash, which is something
my mother made on rare occassions , but something she really enjoyed.
I miss her so much. I decided
I would create a shrine in her memory and perhaps in memory of my
grandmother, who was a quilter.
I searched for a box to make a proper shrine but, simply could not come up with
anything locally. I had to settle for a simple unhinged paper mache’ box. I have
gathered up the other components and I have drawn out what I am going to paint.
This will be the project for today. It is rainy and cold here today so it is the perfect
stay at home project.
Lastly, in between it all I want to work on a new gravitar/icon for my blog…we’ll see…
