Laughing Catrina Shrines

shrine10b

Since I have so many Day of the Dead designs, I thought I’d start a mini countdown to November 2nd, the final day of the Dia de los Muertos celebrations in Mexico. To kick things off, one of my favorite matchbox shrine designs, Laughing Catrinas. These cackling skellies come with complete instructions for three mounting variations, from easy to complex, and all the pieces and parts you’ll need to make three of them.

Celebrate All Hallow’s Read

In 2010, writer Neil Gaiman came up with a brilliant idea: during the week of Halloween, we should give each other scary books. That’s how All Hallow’s Read came into being. What could be better than a celebration that involves giving books?

I designed the Poe-themed Cold & Alone Bookmark Set with scary books in mind. Just print, fold, add a swipe of glue and some ribbon, and you’ll have a nice matching set to adorn your books.
