I have to brag on a friend of mine, Erin, still in Guatemala. I got to see her briefly on our trip. She's been there for a year and a half, and her beautiful daughter just turned 2. Her husband lives there with her now. Her blog is, of course, interesting but more importantly she has a shop on Etsy! Her stuff is amazing! She recycles Guatemalan hand-woven textiles into fabric collages, mosaics, note cards, etc. Her stuff is so unique and such a tribute to the beauty of the Guatemalan culture. As you're thinking of gift-season coming up, you have to check out her stuff! Her site is called La Chapina. Check it out!!!
I thought I had a picture of Eliot with her daughter but I can't find it! Erin, do you have it?
Also, keep checking the Lauers Blog. They update it daily, sometimes twice. Sweet little Noah is in need of your prayers and Josh and Deb in need of our encouragement.
