Every day for the next three weeks, you’ll be treated to topics chosen by guest posters who volunteered to pinch-hit on PCDaily. Their work allows me to travel worry-free. Shower them with comments!
Here are some ways you can get involved in my Nepalese adventure:
- Learn about these survivors of domestic violence by visiting their website and blog.
- Donate via PayPal to help them turn a jewelry business into a new way of life.
- Explore my ethnic textile-inspired “gypsy glitter” secrets in this 90-minute online class, where 25% of my proceeds will go the Samunnat women.
In this exotic bracelet Wisconsin’s Erin Prais-Hintz took a few beads I created for my trip and worked some magic. I asked for asymmetric and jangly and sent her to my Pinterest board to get a sense of my vision. I’ve been tossing ideas and inspirations onto Pinterest for months.
My eyes filled with tears when I saw Erin’s results on this and several other pieces which are better than what I had in mind and way better than what I could have done. Here’s Erin’s work on Flickr and she’s written about this project on her blog. Erin’s creations are carefully packed in my suitcase as I head out for a few weeks.
I can hear you all shouting, “Bon Voyage!” See you in December.
