They are so fun and easy to make. In just a few minutes, you can create something that makes you smile while you are making it and everytime you look at it. :)

Here she is working on her very first bear for the Mother Bear Project. :)

We took a guided tour of Mazatlan to see some of the countryside and experience the rich Mexican culture and history.
Above you will see the Papantla Flyers that were just amazing to see. I took a short video for you of the show that we saw in a small outdoor theater.
Our tour also took us to see the colonial villages where we saw many crafts being made such as...
