I love the shoes. And learning about the process that goes into making them. Cool, colorful and it looks like often one-of-a-kind--the best kind of craft.

Nice shoes! Love the bright colors of the andean handicrafts.
Those teenagers at the center must love you. I'm sure you're teaching great things to them that, hopefully, they will keep throughout their lives. Simple things like a little kindness
or doing handmade cards for their moms I'm sure is a lot for them.


kika - merci!

alina - gracias

gracia - maybe we can find a way to get you a pair!

clare - i know! i'm addicted to the colors too.

louise - thank you!

monica - and they are teaching me a lot as well...

simple me

Hi Risa,

Do you want me to send papers or other things to use in projects to where you are?
I love the colours and work of that mola. Gorgeous!


I love seeing these mary janes. I do not often see traditional latin & south american handicrafts in updated and 'modern' themes and styles - is this common anywhere?


those shoes! i'm dying! so adorable!
