This week Melbourne designer / illustrator Madeleine Stamer joins us with a Mexicana-inspired Guest Blog!

GODDAMN. I know I am prone to excitement / exaggeration / general gushing but CAN I JUST SAY – this week’s Guest Blog is seriously EXCELLENT.  No bones about it.

Melbourne’s favourite (non-Mexican) Mexicana afficionado Madeleine Stamer has put together the most stellar series of posts covering a festival which falls this week – Día de los Muertos, aka Day of the Dead!  This year the celebrations will take place tomorrow (All Saints Day) and Wednesday (All Souls Day).  So at TDF HQ we’re ignoring the big horse race – instead you’ll find us Mexifying the loungeroom with a DIY shrine and traditional Papel Picado (punched paper) banners, and munching on tasty tacos. ;)

Maddi’s guest blog this week is very educational as well as entertaining!  It covers spirituality AND death AND craft AND food AND two giveaways!!   AWESOME!
