Day 18/100: "Anniversary." Taper candle garland: multicolored howlite skulls, glass pearls, black glass hearts, Swarovski crystals, semi-transparent blue leaves.
Anniversaries of any kind can be cause for celebration or reminders of sorrow. For some folks, the anniversary is the calendar date of death, but it isn't uncommon for folks to use a different marker - date of notification, relation to another event, date of diagnosis, or any other significant date of emotional impact.
Given that today is both April 19 and "the Friday before Easter," there's two death anniversaries for me from my family of origin. It seemed fitting to use today's the100dayproject to make something in honor of them.
Leaves for new growth; hearts for remembrance; pearls for one of the deaths I'm honoring; crystals for the other. Skulls for obvious reasons.
