Jewelry making machine.

Every free time I get I use it to make jewelry. It has been a very busy week and it's only Wednesday but I have 2 jewelry parties scheduled for this weekend. Family is visiting from Mexico for the next month and two of my little cousins have been helping me organize my beads as well as putting beads together on the string to make bracelets. On Monday I had a coworker and two of her friends come over to help me make some jewelry. this was very helpful because I was able to accomplish more than I thought I would. I Still have to make more necklaces and earrings but one day at a time. My friend Carolina was able to put several of my pieces on her Etsy website and through word-of-mouth She has been able to sell several bracelets. I have completely ran out of turquoise beads which means I need to stalk up! I was thinking about what I was going to wear tomorrow for work and realized that I haven't done laundry. Ha!

A good friend of mine came into my job today and dropped off two boxes of diapers. Lorena, who is going with me to Guatemala for the first three weeks,  is actually going to ship a huge box of diapers to the orphanage in Guatemala. There is a company whom her mother ships with to El Salvador and it's quite reliable. Our goal is to fit as many diapers as possible in this box and use some of that money from the jewelry sales to ship the box. Friends and family have donated diapers and that's how we are able to maximize the money that's coming in through jewelry sales as well as other people donating financially. 

I have about 16 days left and I get excited and nervous anticipating the departure. Soon, very soon.
