Only one week till our family (minus Jordan) heads to Isla Mujeres, Mexico for Brenna’s winter break! I can’t wait for a week of sun, beach, snorkeling and exploring.
While doing research for our trip I discovered a very cool program on Isla that peaked my curiosity. It seems there’s a group of Mayan women that gather together to create beaded jewelry and accessories on the island. They make a living for their families selling their wares in a small storefront in town.
Donations are always appreciated, so I’m planning on bringing down some of my beads and seed beads. I’m hoping to meet some of the women and will tell you about my visit when I return.
