New Cards Have Arrived!!

We received our 2nd batch of handmade banana leaf cards from Haiti. Right now, as I type this, I'm in the process of posting them to the Etsy site. Please go check them out!

Here's a link to the back story on the last batch of cards.

We added clear labels to the back of each card this time (based on feedback from our fabulous shoppers). We want the recipients of the cards to know how unique and special they are. The labels say:

This card was handmade by an artisan in Haiti. The purchase of this card provided work for the people of Haiti and food for the Hope for Little Angels of Haiti Orphanage. Thank you for your support.
We're also bundling them differently this time. They're being shipped in a clear cellophane bag tied with a ribbon and with our logo sticker card attached.

They are a bit more this time because the designs are more intricate and therefore we paid the artisans more to create them.

We go to Haiti again in just over 2 weeks. It would be fabulous if we could take additional funds down to the orphanage with this trip. Even if you don't purchase some yourself, please spread the word to anyone you can think of so that we can get more funds to these kids.

I tried to purchase your sunset batch of cards and it would not let me. Is there a way I could buy them by sending you a check?
