We Are Back in the US!

After nearly two years in Guatemala, our family of three is back in the United States! We just arrived last night.

As for the future of La Chapina Crafts? Don't worry, I accumulated a LOT of textiles, beads, and other craft supplies and brought them all with me! We hardly brought any of our own clothing, household items, or books home... All the suitcases were packed full of items for crafting! (And we were verrry lucky that the guy at the counter let some of our bags through without charging us for the extra pounds!)

In the coming weeks I'll be adding a lot of new items, like beads, Claudia Tremblay prints, and huipiles I've never had in the shop before. Stay tuned :)

Cool! I love those Guatemalan fabrics! I have made 2 dolls with skirts made of the beautiful woven fabric. Any chance you know where I could get some more?

Welcome back, Erin! I know there will be some adjusting, but hope it goes smoothly. And, I hope La Chapina continues to grow and offer you ever more opportunities to continue the relationships you've established in Guatemala. It would be great if Azucena could grow up bi-lingual and have deep knowledge of her mother country, as she will of her adopted one.

Happy 2009 to all three of you!

I'm so glad you are home. Having experienced a long and uncertain future of our own, I knew it would turn out ok.
