I suppose when you want something you just do it, but I have now got to the point where I need childcare and fast! I am looking at different options and hopefully something will come through. This is all part of my very busy mamá life! I don't want anyone to think it's easy — because IT'S NOT.
With all that said, you know I like to introduce you to new products and services — especially one like VirtuArte, a site founded by a Washington, D.C. local on the premise that there is a market for unique art, folk art and fine crafts and curios from the developing world in the US, Europe and other high income countries.

Aside from each item featuring a description of how and when it was made there is also a short bio on the artist who made it which gives customers background and truly drives home the message that the item was handcrafted with love and care.
The wallet is stunning and the embroidery detail is beyond impressive. When I opened the package I felt I was opening a handmade gift from a friend — it's just that special. Each design is committed to memory and hand guided — no templates or stencils are used which means no two are alike.
Most of the artists are women and moms and I felt compeled as a woman who is working to do good by my family to highlight the work of these brilliant artists doing the same for their families. I hope you will support them in their journey.
