SOTBS Blog Hop: Paper Mache Catrinas for Día de Muertos

SOTBS Blog Hop logo -
In an effort to get back to blogging, a few of my "South of the Border Sisters" (as we like to call ourselves) have decided to team up for a monthly blog hop starting today. Our theme this month is Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead). If you would like to join in the fun, write a blog post with Día de Muertos as your theme then come back to this post to add the link in the blog hop below and let me know in the comments.  

Día de Muertos hasn't always been a big deal holiday-wise in our small town. I was greatly disappointed my second Day of the Dead in Mexico when there wasn't an altar, sugar skull candy, or pan de muerto in sight. I felt like I had been gypped. And it didn't help that the Mexican TV stations were showcasing how the holiday was being celebrated all over the country. Except my small town. But that was 15 years ago.
