Dear Friends of Bluebird Fairies,
Many of you know that November 2nd is a big holiday in Mexico. It's "El Dia de Los Muertos"; "The Day of the Dead." Far from being a somber time it's when people set up fun alters and have parties with the people who've departed earth.
Ever since my father died I've celebrated this holiday. I liked the idea that he can join us for a fun dinner. Here's a picture I drew on the wall of my former studio space of him as a fairy.
He'd love this!
I hope you can find some pleasure in this belief as we pass through the next few days.
For those of you in the area the Bluebird Fairies studio will be having the Bluebird Day of the Dead Open House Friday November 3rd from 5-8. Please find your way into the building at the corner of Howard and Pine and follow the signs to Bluebird Fairies. We have a really fun alter set up and it will be great to see you.
Wishing you much joy.
All the best!
Emily and the Bluebird Fairies
