Its That Time ofYear!

Just wanted you to see what I’ve been doing to get ready for The Day of The Dead.The date is Nov. 2! This year I made an Ofrenda for a Frienda mine  and didnt think to take pics.  He loves it and is planning to add to it when he goes halloween buying!  The picture here I started way back in the spring when we took a class in Connecticut.  Just had the background. When I looked again it was summer and I wanted to think of what to do for D.O.D. As you can see I had fun putting it together.  Are you celebrating this season? I love D.O.D because it is a celebration of your loved ones who are no longer here rather than a sorrowful time.



  1. Oh I love your Offrenda with it’s lilies and rust and shiny faced skulls with their butterfly adornments. We played with Michael Demeng at Art is You and made a whole table of skull wonderfulness. Its was an over the top offrenda from many of us. I honored my Mom with some glittery bling. Love this piece. xox

  2. thanks for looking! I think I will use this pic as a cover for a box of other d.o.d. things! maybe!

  3. dear lyle,

    i wanted to thank you for your amazing generosity, when you so kindly sent me two skeleton figures. because of your kindness i fashioned an “upcycled” wedding couple. which you can finally meet here…

    i want to invite you and your readers to share the days of october as we count down to dia de los muertos, La Calaca Love, a calaca a day for the month of october.

    it’s just so YOU!!!

  4. rebecca, I love what you did with the skeletons. they are such fun to play with! I have been enjoying your calacas and will remind all to visit you.

  5. I adore your Day of the Dead work…makes me want to get going on my altar for this year! Awesome work!!!
