The Beginning of the End...

Here we are, the final week of the Samhain's Sirens Project. It has been a great month, with some really great blog posts, crafts, music, recipes, and of course, some awesome giveaways, of which I have been lucky enough to win two of!

Today Kourtney kicks us off with a really awesome post about her personal celebration of Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, a Spanish celebration of honoring our ancestors. One of the things she says I totally agree with, and that is what started out as decor on sugar skulls has transformed into amazing works of art. I love the imagery that is associated with the skulls, I mean look at this picture. It is stunningly gorgeous.

Kourtney writes a very interesting post about how she feels and what she and her family do to honor her loved ones who have passed on, and it also made me think about how I will be celebrating this year, which is not something I have done in some time. I will write about that in my NaBloWriMo post this afternoon/evening.

There is a recipe for sugar skulls today, which are so cute to me. I wish I had a mold, I would love to make them! I do not think I am talented enough to shape them by hand lol. The recipe is super easy!

The craft of the day is adorable, and it is something I have done with Alex in the past. A pasta skeleton!

Today's giveaway is a lush one. Twysted Thystle is giving away some awesome body products that I would loooove to have. I really want to try her Ginger line of products.

The  song  of the day is an old favorite of mine, so  pop on over and check out TODAY'S POST and join in on all the fun! Time is running out, so get those entries in for the daily giveaways, which adds your name to the drawing for the grand prize giveaway in just a couple of days!

I hope you all have a wonderful day, and prayers of safety going out to all my upper East Cost people.
