Christmas Cards Ordered!

Found a really cool website through one of the blogs we follow. To go along with our Ethiopian adoption, we decided to send out Ethiopian Christmas cards this year and here's the best part: the money used goes towards a very good cause. The project is called Jimma Banana Art. The cards are hand made in Jimma, Ethiopia from various parts of the banana plant and the proceeds help to employee the 30 women who make them in a city where unemployment runs rampant. To read more about Jimma Banana Art and it's cause click HERE. Below are just a couple of their card designs.

I bought a bunch of these cards and framed them for art in my house. They are awesome. I only bought one piece of banana leaf art in Ethiopia (it is everywhere) and really regret not buying more. I didn't realize just how much I would fall in love with it.
