It's my turn....

The first five people...
to leave a comment on this blog will receive something made by me.
However there are some limitations:

1. I make no guarantee that you will like what I make :)
2. What I create will be just for you
3. It will be done within a year (might take a while)
4. You have no clue what it is going to be
5. I reserve the right to do something really fun

Here the catch: if you choose to do this, you must post this on your blog and be ready to make something for five people too. This will be fun! When you receive the fabulous item I make you, you must post a picture of it on your blog.

A Visit to Zambia

So our Christmas Getaway began with a trip to Zambia. There we were able to meet with old friends and introduce our new friends, the Heaps to our favorite spot in Africa! We saw such a huge change in the development of the property. What started out as a raw piece of land now has a huge warehouse with 2 houses attached, good drinking water coming out of a hose, solar power, cultivated crops, chickens and 2 families and 21 kids! It was very impressive and we were very excited to see the progress as well as seeing all of our friends there.

For Christmas day we were entertained by the children and we gave the boys new hats and the girls new necklaces that Denise and I had made. We then traveled back to the Chikusus where we cooks a Mexican dinner of chicken enchiladas, tacos, refried beans and homemade salsa and guacamole. Edah was in heaven!

We stayed with Edah & Patrick Chikusu, friends we have stayed with many times before...

We got to visit the Tuesday Market, where the colors of Africa come alive!
