This is a blog about my attempts at living a 'green' life, learning some old school skills, starting a business, and anything else I deem reasonable enough to write about (which is pretty much everything).
My grandmother is one of the major influences for my business and I am so excited to be spending this birthday with her. I want to share this celebration with everyone so everything in my Etsy shop is 20% off starting tomorrow October 30 through November 1st. Help Etta + Billie celebrate by heading to www.ettaandbillie.etsy.com and use "grandma90" in the "message to seller" when checking out.
Mister and I received a full size pumpkin as part of our CSA and I decided I want to carve it up a little differently this year. Rather than going with the traditional Halloween pumpkin, I have decided I want to do a Dia De Los Muertos theme.
For those that dont know, Dia De Los Muertos is a Latin American festival where friends and families gather to celebrate and remember their dead loved ones. I love the imagery of Dia De Los Muertos (sugar skulls, masks, bright colors, flowers) so I want to do some sort of carving using the skulls as inspiration (like the one below). I am not very skilled with the pumpkin carving knife but I will share my results even if it looks horrible.
