Bit of a late post but here’s a set of custom sugar skull candles I recently made🧡❤️💛🕯
These were my first request for sugar skull customs and they came out AMAZING! I was quite honored to make these since they were made in preparation for Dia de los Muertos, which is a Mexican holiday where families and communities come together to honor and celebrate their loved ones who have passed🖤🕯✨

I’m excited for Halloween next week, but I’m extra excited to throw my first Dia De Los Muertos party!
My grandmother is in town for a while, and I thought it would be super fun and special to celebrate. My great grandmother passed a few years ago and this is the perfect time to celebrate and remember her and everyone else we’ve lost.
I am 100% Mexican, but I don’t celebrate my heritage as much as I’d like. I don’t speak Spanish, and that makes it very difficult to feel connected to my background. Doing this is helping me connect with my background more and with my grandma. Bring on the tacos, tamales and cervezas!!

Pictured: Appointments 2, 3 (dentist for me), & 4 out of 5 today. Four and five are running simultaneously, so the husband and I are doing ye olde Divide and Conquer.
Not every day is like this, sometimes we only have ONE appointment scheduled for the day! 😲 Someone once asked me how anyone can foster and still work a full-time job. Honestly, I don't know, but I know several families that do just that. So anytime I'm feeling the pressure of a busier than normal day, I remind myself to be grateful. To be grateful that I CAN stay home with the kids, that I am able to manage most of the calendar so that most of our weekends and evenings are free, that I have a spouse that is willing and ready to help whenever asked.
After this is a run to the grocery store for a quick dinner because you know I forgot to prepare something yesterday. 🤦 What is your go-to quick meal Frozen pizza Lasagna (maybe takes too long to cook) Rotisserie Chicken Waffles Take out
