PCAGOE Monthly Challenge - Dia De Los Muertos


It's that time of the month! ;) No, not THAT time of the month - it's time for the Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy (PCAGOE) Monthly Challenge!

This month's theme was "Day of the Dead," or "Dia De Los Muertos," a Mexican holiday that focuses on remembrance of friends and relatives who have died. Traditions include building private altars honoring the deceased, using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts.

Yours truly actually got her act together in time to enter this month!

Please take a minute to vote on your favorite entry (you don't have to vote for mine!) and be automatically entered to win a great prize package featuring work from PCAGOE members.

You can vote once between now and
midnight (Eastern Standard Time) on Friday, October 3. Winners will be announced on October 4th.
