DAY OF THE DEAD


Yesterday we went to a fabulous Day of the Dead indoor picnic and today, on the actual day, I will be driving up in the country for a show. Tomorrow I'm planning to just lie around the house eating coconut balls and reading magazines. We'll see if I can manage that.

Btw funny; I didn't want to paint my face too much because I thought Dag might freak out but he was just 'naah, whatever, gimme the boob!' In fact the seemed to like all painted faces, exaggerated and colourful. A kid a little older was totally horrified by all the skeletons though...

PS. this weekends give away at my FB page is for a four-colour set of mineral lip colour!

I thought kids under the age of 6 months don't distinguish faces yet, so that seems totally normal, especially with the older kid begin terrified.

Love the Day of the Deads make up. It doesn't look horrifying at all but has a somehow butterfly look. Pretty! Hugs from Miss Maple

Ohh, I LOVE it! I've always wanted to paint my face like that, then later I always forget to do it!
