Dia de Los Muertos!

Sadly, Halloween 2013 has come and gone. Hopefully it was a rowdy, fun-fest for everyone! Since Halloween is quickly followed by Dia de Los Muertos, I know the celebrations will continue into this weekend!

Martha Stewart’s 2013 Halloween Magazine

For those of you equally obsessed with Halloween, you know the “special edition” Martha Stewart Halloween magazine is now on shelves!
