Tuesday:) Toni’s Dia de Los Muertos Little Workshop

13 Oct

“Creative geniuses redefine the desired solution. They don’t just push the envelope; they create a whole new courier system.”
― Puneet Bhatnagar


When my good friends Theresa Johnston and Blynda Christian asked me if I’d be interested in helping out with the first ever McKinney Dia de Los Muertos Celebration, I was ecstatic. The Latino tradition of celebrating and honoring our ancestors who have passed away is a wonderful age old tradition in most Latin American countries.

If you are in the McKinney area on Saturday, you should come check it out. I have the honor of being one of the judges of the costume contest that begins a 4pm-6pm and winners announced at 6:30.

I volunteered to work on decorating some crowns for the winners. Blynda found some amazing metal crowns for the Catrin (male) winners that I could jazz up, and I found some headbands to decorate for the Catrina (female) winner.

This is how creative people work… they take out ever possible object known to mankind, grab a glue gun, scissors, wire cutters, and various strange tools and just start playing. I had a great time playing and inventing ideas to make these crowns.

This is just the table. You would see the floor. 🤦‍♀️

The Catrin Crowns.
The Catrina Crowns. (I made some extra because I want one too.)

I’m looking forward to a fun day and celebration. You know there will be photos Saturday. ❤️
