Halloween and Día de los Muertos

Here is the pumpkin I did this Halloween!!

This year for Halloween I went out with my girlfriends and dressed up as a Day of the Dead woman.  I painted my face and bedazzled my eyes.  I got a great dress for free! Don't mind my face in the last picture...from far away I have holes for eyes and a nose!  


I love Dia de los Muertos art.  Here is some past art that I have done.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  I work in a confidential domestic violence shelter and want to show my support to all the survivors and those who have helped them, as well as raise awareness about the seriousness of domestic violence.  1 in 4 women will be a victim of domestic violence at one point in their lives.  It can also affect men, who oftentimes are embarrassed to come forth about their abuse.  There are resources out there for people who are experiencing domestic violence.  If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence you can call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233(SAFE) or visit the National Network to End Domestic Violence's site.
