Back in the saddle on PCD

Tinapple on PCDaily

PCD is back! It was good to take a travel break and I’m returning grateful and refreshed. Of course I took polymer with me.

If you look closely at these Tibetan villagers you’ll see that they’re all wearing small square gold pendants I made that feature an image transfer of the Dalai Lama.

Whenever travelers I met on the trail remarked on the pendants on satin cords that my husband and I were wearing, we would take ours off and give them away. My name is stamped into the textured pendant backs.

Images of the Dalai Lama are revered (and illegal on the Chinese side of the border). The ability to leave treasured bits of polymer art in this remote part of the world was a highlight of the trek.

You’ve been busy creating and posting and I look forward to catching up and bringing you your daily dose of inspiration starting today. I’m back in the saddle.
