A few weeks ago I taught a workshop at the Denver Public Library for Fresh City Life called Dia de las Tazas where participants created their own sugar skull, day of the dead themed mugs. It was really fun and there were some really wonderful and creative mug creations. Here are a few of my favorites:
If you’re not familiar with the Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), it’s a time when the lives of loved ones who have passed on are celebrated by those of us still here. I have a lot of people that I’m thinking about today who are with me in spirit.
Tonight my sister is coming over and we are going to work on some paint by number pictures of the Red Baron. We found the pictures in our grandfather’s stuff after he passed away. He loved airplanes, especially biplanes, and he was fascinated by the Red Baron. We’re not sure where he got the paint by number set, or if he ever intended to do them, but we will work on them tonight and remember him fondly. We love you Grampa George!
Who will you remember today?
