God always gives us the neatest opportunities when we ask. I was looking for a way to earn a little extra money towards our trip . . . something besides (or in addition to) selling everything we own. We have some close friends who own a thriving sign business. They are preparing for an upcoming Basque festival, called Jaialdi, here in the Treasure Valley.
So I asked if they needed any extra help preparing, and I now have a stack of wood waiting for some hand-painted Lauburus. What’s a Lauburu, you may ask?
A Lauburu, or Basque cross, is a symbol of the Basque country and the Basque people. It’s generally used as a symbol of prosperity.
This is one of the many beautiful signs our friends have produced. I wish them the best of luck selling at their first Jaialdi! Thanks for giving me a creative outlet in between the packing and cleaning. Love you guys!
