Thank you Lori & Day of the Dead Crafts

A while ago my blogging friend Lori, of Run Lori Run, asked if I would make her some baby cards for some expecting friends of hers. Wow! I nearly got the vapors. So very sweet and flattering. Thank you Lori!

Lori suggested a swap and I received mine yesterday. WAHOO! I love it so! (Alas, poor Lori has me at the other end and I am a slow poke, as slow as molasses and it will be Tuesday before she receives her cards. ACK!)

Lori asked what would I like her to make for me, a runner or a dolly? I told her to make me whatever she would enjoy making but perhaps something spooky for the season would be fun. Well ...

Lori and I share a love of the Mexican tradition of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and the most charming Day of the Dead runner arrived yesterday! Thank you so very much Lori, I love it so much and I will treasure it.

Have fun making some of your own DOTD crafts with these fun ideas!

  1. That is THE cutest darn DOTD runner EVER! I am so green it is not funny! ACK!!! Well, at least it went to you, a lovely person who I like a whole lot and not someone else. And it was made by another lovely person! That helps. ;) I hope I can actually put together an altar this year. I have been trying to do it for about a decade. :) Have a great week, my friend! xox

  2. Hi Pammie! Isn't it wonderful?!! I'm hoping to get an altar up this year too - ever hopeful teehee! (We did get one done in 2008)
    Happy happy Monday and week to you!
