Dia de los Muertos has this unique way of stimulating the senses–from the bright colors associated with the day, altars, skulls, calaveras, music, dance, food and art. Maybe it’s the notion that as we talk about death and remember those who have left us to the next world, we–the ones who are still in this realm–truly feel alive.
For me and my life, a big part of feeling alive is creating something. That is my contribution to the world. Two things: my creativity and my children–they bring beauty into this world.
I’m very happy to share this lovely eBook that I had the blessing to be a part of called Ofrendas: Celebrating Day of the Dead. Together with several of my favorite Latina bloggers, we decided to collaborate and share some of our favorite Dia de los Muertos recipes and crafts that we like to make with our families to celebrate this special time of the year. It was such a pleasure to work with such a talented and passionate group of women.
The eBook is lovely and the photos are gorgeous–it really makes Dia de los Muertos come alive.
