Back to Black: 3 New Cards October 25 2017
Two ancient celebration days are approaching: Halloween and the Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos). In keeping with the mood cast by these events, I've added three cards to the website which reflect the dark celebratory mood: a black cat, a black mask, a purple moon. Follow these links to order your cards today!
Halloween has ancient origins dating back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1.

The Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) is an ancient celebration with origins in Aztec traditions honouring the dead. In Mexico it is a day to celebrate, remember and prepare special foods in honour of those who have departed. It is believed that the spirit of the dead visit their families on October 31 and leave on November 2.
Wishing a spooky Halloween and Dia de los Muertos.
