While my son Ulysse was gone trick or treating with his friends at the village I kept busy on Halloween night. First, I got myself a super GIANT box of good-quality assorted chocolates, second, I dressed up in my favorite flannel pyjamas then I started applying the 4 coats of satin varnish on the 30 small-size prints I had mounted on black wooden blocks (made with recycled wood from the local woodmill).

MY OFRENDAS FOR DIA DE MUERTOS ...
I watched 3 horror movies while doing this
(with Roman Polanski)
(not the Goldblum version but the real old one where
a fly with a human face is caught in a spider web at the end)
and The Shinning
(who doesn't know this movie)
I left my paint brushes at 4 a.m. to go to bed with a chocolate overdose, eyes coming out of their sockets and ears sore from all that screaming and howling.
Yesterday morning, the sun rays were warming the kitchen table where I had left all these tiny prints and they looked so lovely and bold and funky, they looked like jewels out of treasure box!
I am so happy with the results !
They can be mounted on a wall in an arrangement
and they also stand up and look pretty on a shelf with some other favorite trinkets
I will be listing them Wednesday,
November 4, 2009
in my Etsy shop at 10 p.m. Eastern Time !
(that is 9 p.m. Central Time)
(8 p.m. Mountain Time)
(7 p.m. Pacific Time)
(and 11 p.m. Maritime Time)
(sorry I had to delay listing to Wednesday
but tomorrow is parent's meeting night
at my son's school)
30 different prints mounted on wooden blocks,
measuring 4" x 4", 4 1/2" x 4 1/2", 3" x 5" and 4" x 5"
with a few exceptions.
I think they would make wonderful Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers !
First come, first served !
Oh! and before I forget ...
HAPPY DIA DE MUERTOS !
