My little skulls for Dia de los Muertos altars. Can't see in the photos -- but they have names and crosses painted on the back.

Beading with Sequins Resources

So, Robin and Arline had a question about using sequins in bead embroidery (as per Ms. Mermalicious in the post below) -- here are some book reviews I did on three books I've found inspirational and instructional too!
