All creations are of my original design, and no two items are entirely alike. Because of my teaching background, when I get an idea I feel compelled to put it into action and with some Etsy money, I buy school supplies which we then deliver during our yearly travels to village schools in underfunded areas. Deliveries so far have included Northern Thailand, Guatamala, Bali, and northern Mexico.
