A Día de los Muertos Honor


I woke to snow this morning and by the time it started to subside the sun was making a valiant effort to peek through the lingering clouds and snowfall. It was serene … and somehow motivating. I lit two candles for a friend. I cut the calendula-tangerine-lavender soap I made the other day, and am once again pleased with the outcome. I made a quart of pickled eggs and worked on some herbal-based products I've been refining, and I cleaned up some files too. 



I then made time to sit and doodle. I finished up a journal page I started on the first of November. I've been adding a little here, a little there over the past few months, but two days ago I honored the spirit of my father who passed from this life 36 years ago, and was inspired to fill and complete this Día de los Muertos page. Today, it is filled, with honor for the cycle of life, and with memories too.

Seems I'm continuing the theme now too.

That's what I made today. Peace.

Those are cool doodles! My dad passed in 2004. The first azalea flower of the season opened its bloom today. We had a SPECTACULAR day of warmth and sun. Yaaay! :)

I love the way you honor each day and what it has to bring to your life. A day of memories of loved ones (your father) and the journal of zentangle totems is so wondrous.

Beautiful Doodles!!! I love Dia de los muertos art and the traditions. We worked in the garden today, turning the soil and sunning the little plants that I started from seed last month. Spring will be visiting you soon.

What a fabulous journal page! It's so amazingly detailed. I'm kind of thankful that we didn't get a lot of snow - I was so happy seeing a lot of my yard again! Theresa
