Skull Appreciation Day 2012 Recap

Just wanted to recap this year's Skull Appreciation Day celebrations...

For those of you who missed our one-day Skull Appreciation Day 2012 exhibition at Philadelphia's Mütter Museum here area few pix of the work we had on display...







Mütter Museum curator Anna Dhody even wore this maternity shirt especially for the day!...



More pix of the exhibition can be found on Flickr HERE. Several of the pieces are still available for purchase, find out more about them HERE.

Of course we weren't the only ones celebrating Skull Appreciation Day, here's a sampling of some other folks were up to....

Was so excited to see my card featured here. Thanks for the inspiration. We had a fabulous time celebrating Skull Appreciation Day on the Smeared and Smudged Forum.
