Adios, Hermano (I mean Cuñado)


Eric's Coptic JournalI’m sure there’s a different word for Brother-in-law, but I guess Eric will probably learn that one while he’s in Honduras for the next two years. Just before he left, I made him a journal, which hopefully  he’ll keep while there. He is in for a serious adventure and we’re going to miss him.


While making this journal I realized, or rather it was pointed out to me, that I have very few masculine patterned papers. Although the brown with Paisley is feminine, I think it’s still a pretty masculine book. In addition to making the journal, I made a magnetic bookmark (like what I made for Maggie). I think these things are so handy, and pretty darn awesome!

      Sooo lovely! Do you have any book binding tutorials? I would love to try my hand at something like that…

      Meliss, my little brother is in Tegucigalpa, and has been for almost a year. Is that where Eric’s going? He loves it there! I hope he uses that book well. You’re always so creative!

      I highly recommend your bookmarks, I love mine!

      I’m curious–he’s going on a mission, right? My husband served in Honduras… San Pedro Sula, to be exact. Where’s your brother-in-law headed to? I’ve heard it’s beautiful but really hot there!

      My brother-in-law is heading out on a mission, so he doesn’t really leave for Tegucigalpa for another 9 weeks. ;)
      We’ve been reading in the newspaper about the politics that are going on down there, it’s very exciting! It’ll be interesting to see what things will be like when Eric actually gets there, that is. . . if he ever gets the visa.

      For sure. We were planning on going back there at the end of the summer, but with swine flu and the political stuff, I think we’re thinking probably next year. How exciting for Eric though!
