Ahora me toca en EspaƱol

Estoy tan emocionada de que pronto conocere a mujeres maravillosas que por lo pronto solo conozco por internet! Y volver a ver a tantas amigas que conoci en el Congreso de Chapala.
Espero que tengamos un viaje estupendo

Mexican Items at the World Faire

I will bring some mexican items to sell to the World Faire, incluing Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera Sarongs, hand embroidered toddler girl dresses, small wooden mexican souvenirs, silver LLL logo pendants. All of them in very limited quantities.

I also will bring beautiful handmade baby slings in great mexican cotton fabrics, and also some rebozo type fabric, you can buy several to sell at your local LLL group, they are really nicely priced, I even ship to the US if you want to buy later. So I will wait for you at the Mexico table.

If you want to take a look of the items I will bring , you can see here:

You can take a look at the sarongs here:

My Tehuana Dress

I will bring a Tehuana Dress for me to use during the Parade of Nations. I'm so excited to use it, because it used to belong to my grandmother. I even have a small huipil that belonged to my aunt, that Ani will use.
Here is the complete costume:

I's used in a mexican region called Istmo de Tehuantepec, in a State called Oaxaca.

The skirt and huipil are completely hand embroidered

I have our visas

Hi! I was a little nervous because my daughter didn't have her visa to travel to the USA, but forunately, It was ready to be picked up on friday (Pheww, just a few days before the flight!)
The obtention of the visa is a lenghty process here in Mexico City, usually lasting about 3 months! But we made it on time...

I will arrive on July 2nd with my co leader Tammy, and Ani my daughter, we are very excited!
