Halloween changes in store, Days of the Dead plans

Changes are in store, pun intended, for my Etsy shop, ImagineMDD. The Halloween holiday is a good time to mention them since they're coming soon. I'll be adding some vintage holiday and event-themed memorabilia to my stock. 

I've been a collector for years and am ready to offer some of my goodies to other collectors out there. 

Aside from gathering, photographing and preparing items for the shop, there are other things we do this time of year. We have an annual family celebration for the Day of the Dead, or Día de los Muertos where we prepare a shrine to family members who've died.

One of my favorite books about the tradition has always been The Days of the Dead: Mexico's Festival of Communion with the Departed, by Rosalind Rosoff Beimler. You can get a terrific dose of both crafty goodness and information from The Crafty Chica.

Some more jewelry will be added to my shop, perhaps for parties or just to be that special cheer-me-up piece. Some special pieces are coming that are meaningful in different ways. Changes and additions to the shop will be announced here.

Now everything's cool, Drac's a part of the band
And my monster mash is the hit of the land
For you, the living, this mash was meant too
When you get to my door, tell them Boris sent you...

  1. Celebrating Día de los Muertos does not happen where I live. However, I was in San Diego in late October/early November a few years ago and saw many such shrines. It seems a great way to honor departed loved ones.
