As part of our process we have had to request help from others. Also, being as family is incredibly important to both of us, we have needed their support and prayer.
How does one really say, "Thank You"? Those words just do not seem to be enough to express how we feel towards our family and friends who have joined us on this journey.
So off to Blogger world I went......
I found an idea which I thought I could do myself.
I have been following a Blog, Domesticated Diva and found this link on her blog:
I didn't buy them, but thought I could give it a shot and create similar item to give as gifts to show our love and thankfulness.
First I went to my dear friend, Joann's Fabric and got the materials I believed I needed.
Then I printed a photo graphic of Africa and shrunk it down. From there, I used some holiday scrapbooking paper to create my image.
As I have shared before, coffee IS Ethiopia and very much embedded in their history and culture.
After fashioning all my materials together.....
Here's what we came up with...
Now, I haven't quite figured out the safest way to ship these little guys....they are so fragile.
So if you haven't received yours yet and you're reading this......
I promise...it will be on it's way...just afraid of shipping.
Happy Holidays to Everyone!
We love you VERY much!
