I am still feeling very inspired by Day of the Dead stuff. Have you noticed? I’ve always been pretty interested, but being here in the Southwest, it really has transpired a spark within. So I have been busily making ornaments and paintings.
I am especially feeling regenerated from the sudden cooler weather. It’s as if Tucson got the memo this year that the Autumnal equinox had arrived. The winds blew in and it has been such a relief. It is still a bit warm mid day, BUT the mornings and evenings are devine! It was touch and go there for a while and I didn’t think I’d make it, but I survived another summer here.
So bring it on! Cooler weather means baking and soup! I made these Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles to celebrate. The recipe is from Isa (everyone in my house knows who Isa is–our favorite vegan cookbook writer) over at Post Punk Kitchen. They are double yum! Crispy on the outside, soft and chewy in the middle and a teeny bit of spice. Perfect for cooler weather and for hanging out with friends who craft, which is what I did tonight. Fun, fun, fun!
P.s. I will be updating my shop over the weekend with all of my new Calavera Ornaments.
