I'm really excited to be going to Zambia later this year - May to be precise! I will be accompanying Peggy, the former co-ordinator of Handmade With Love for a 3 week visit to the school that Handmade With Love was established to support ie Our Rainbow House. Peggy and I have both begun the process of having our innoculations, getting the required paperwork that the charity requires (including a police check!) but we haven't booked our flights yet!

We have started to discuss what we are going to need to take with us - our bags will be filled up by the charity here with things that they want us to take over, as well as our own personal bits and pieces.

Whilst in an African frame of mind I have added some items with an African theme to our Etsy shop. 

Firstly there is the jewelery that was handmade in the village that our school is in and bought by previous volunteers for us to sell. Purchasing these items doubly benefits the local community as all profits from their sale goes back to the school. 

Beautiful bangles


And gorgeous earrings




 I just love them. 

Then there are some iPad/table sleeves made from fabric bought in the village. These are beautiful, functional and inexpensive. Check them out. You know you want to. (Cute factor... there are Zebras on some) 


Yet to be photographed we have some children's dresses, some lamp shades, and some kitchen ware - all made in genuine African fabric. There just isn't enough time in the day to get the photography, editing and uploading done.
