Months went by putting together a customized possible order for the buyer from Puerto Rico’s National Park , and she also said: Evelyn, you know we have huayruros here in Puerto Rico, we call them PEONIAS, although I have seen jewelry made with peonias. I have to be honest chica I HAVE NEVER SEEN DESIGNS LIKE THE ONES YOU MAKE.

My work began making sure I could customize the pieces she wanted to incorporate into her gifts shops. Not only in El Yunque gift shops but also the Real Fortress in the heart of the old San Juan.  After I presented samples, pictures, etc, etc, the buyer told me she would put together the order.  A few weeks went by and I didn’t hear back from her,  until she finally said: Evelyn unfortunately the budget is tight at the moment we have to wait until October, or November. Of course I was disappointed because sometimes it may take longer, months or years before you get your purchase order (PO). Then one Monday the first week in October I got an email that totally made my day, saying : Evelyn, you should receive two purchase orders by the end of today.

I was even happier with the amount of pieces they order:)

In all honesty, I firmly believe that everything arrives at the right time, not sooner or later. It was God’s plans. I always knew one day my pieces would be in Puerto Rico. Why? Simply because Puerto Ricans love my designs, they are as exotic and passionate as my designs.

If you are visiting Puerto Rico for the holidays or anytime during the year, please stop by the gift shop at El Yunque National Forest and The Real Fortress in the Old San Juan and shop designs exclusively created for the enchanted island of Puerto Rico. You will find the sea life and rainforest collection exclusively designed for Puerto Rico visitors looking to get something special that reminds them of their special visit, Of course you will find pieces with the famous COQUI (known as the mascot of PIMG_4906
uerto Rico).

I feel blessed and honor that my designs are now sold in Puerto Rico.

Dear readers, never give up! Stay true to what you want in life, to your dreams. Dream big, work hard, stay focus and committed to your business purpose. Show your professional ethics building a healthy relationship with your customers and staying true to your principles.

Cheers with ALL WORKING HARD TO CONTINUE BUILDING A GREAT AMERICA!

Sincerely,

I had the tremendous honor to be invited to the opening ceremony of Kaipi Peru 2014 at the National Museum of the American Indian.

What a great opportunity to share my culture with the love of my life my hubby dubby. It is very important since we are TWO DIFFERENT CULTURES, to share and try to make him understand, why we are how we are. Why we are so passionate about everything we do from our food, to our dances, to our culture in general. I think Peruvians we have a special way to love our country.

The night began with a speech of the representative of the Museum, then follow by the Peruvian Ambassador to the OAS and the Peruvian Ambassador to the United States Harold Forsyth whom officially inaugurated the event.

Then came the most emotional moment of the night with the presentation of ANU Proyecto Universal a group of Peruvian dancers, then our traditional marinera from the coast of Peru and our huaylas a traditional dance from the mountains of Peru. I had tears in my eyes to share this special moment with my husband. It was like being in Peru for 15 min, but we were actually in Washington DC.

When ANU started to play and make music with many different instruments and loud noises and I was telling him, maybe now you could understand why Tyler is so loud…it may be in his veins, it may be part of his culture.

After the opening ceremony guests were treated to pisco sours and Peruvian delicious ordv’res including aji de gallina, solterito de quinoa, suspiro a la limenha and alfajores.

The reason why I share all these stories through my blog is because I would love to inspire other Peruvians to share the love of our country with new generations, with our kids and so that they pass it to their generations.

I left my country eleven years ago and I don’t regret it. Now that we have two kids Tyler & Stella,  I am trying my best to teach them to love Peru, as much as I love it; to teach them to be responsible citizens of the world:)

I am just so thankful that now we have the opportunity to have a little bit of Peru so close.
