“There it is, a bow tie on a skull!” Will Saimo announces proudly, as he puts the final touch on his sugar skull. The purple paper bow tie complements the purple streaks the 15-year-old added to the top of his creation in a workshop at Snoqualmie Library. Saimo was part of a large group of youth filling the multi-purpose room at the Snoqualmie Library Wednesday, Oct. 2 for a workshop on decorating sugar skulls, or calaveritas de azúcar.
