Sometimes I find inspiration in the most unusual places.
One day my Facebook feed surprised me with something I don't usually see. Instead of baby pictures and politics (yuck!) I was presented with some of the most beautiful tattoos I'd ever seen. All of them were of sugar skulls and some of them were absolutely dazzling.

I have to admit that I don't have any tattoos, but I've come close on several occasions. Turning your body into a living piece of art has a very tantalizing allure to it. But I digress.
These beautiful images got my creative juices flowing. The next thing I knew I had my linoleum carving block out and I was carving sugar skull design of my own. :-)
Within a few hours it was done. Then I was able to use it to block print on all sorts of shirts, towels, AND...baby blankets.
