Getting ready for Halloween

Making further additions to our Halloween display…inspired by Day of the dead we painted some peg dolls.

We painted a witch next and made a hat and cloak for her with felt.

Nadia made a little red riding hood peg doll…all ready here in her felt hood.

Looking very cool with the day of the dead masks we worked on a different day.

Here’s the final display. My camera battery was charging as we worked so I could not take any pictures while Nadia made these items.

Have a great week.

Cheers,

Aruna

Kali Pujo

Kali Pujo always brings this song to mind “Mayer paer joba hoye uth na phoote mon”…So Nadia and I decided to make a painting duo this time for Kali Pujo. Nadia painted a red hibiscus (Joba flower) and I made a rendition of Maa Kali.
