Is it time to panic yet?

Is it time to panic yet?

 

Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday have come and gone. And I’ve barely begun to do my Christmas shopping. It seems like the job is just too big to even start, even though I know all about the shipping delays and the supply chain problems. 

I have the Amazon wish lists for my favorite people, but they are so boring! And looking for anything on Amazon or other big e-commerce sites soon becomes overwhelming. (Case in point: I gave up shopping for new shipping mailers and boxes this morning when 5 zillion options popped up.)

What about you?

If you’re in the same boat, you might need some manageable small window-shopping “bites” to kickstart your holiday shopping (or even your motivation to shop). So we’ve put together a collection of mini “product sets” that give you an idea of how you can mix and match our unique handmade products. We hope they help get you started.

Thank goodness you no longer have to get off the couch and head to the mall to do the actual shopping . . . . No parking problems, no crowds, no check-out lines when you shop at HoonArts. But, as always, HoonArts focuses on the unique, so many of our goodies are one-of-a-kind or a limited artist’s edition, so you can’t wait too long.

FREE SHOPPING QUESTIONNAIRE FOR THE PERFECT GIFT

And if you need more help narrowing things down to make sure that you get your loved one what they REALLY want, we have a shopping questionnaire (“The Perfect Gift”) that you can have your loved one fill out. Even better, just pick out the questions that are most relevant to them, and discuss it in person over dinner or Zoom (or, gasp, the old school phone!) Click here to download The Perfect Gift.

Suzani: The Hidden World Within

by Rikki Quintana June 29, 2022

One of the great joys of exploring the Silk Road art of suzani embroidery is learning the deep meaning behind each of the traditional patterns. When Munira Akilova visited Albuquerque in April, we recorded a short video in which she explained every element of the design she created in our Pomegranate Wall Hanging.

Bread is Life and Art in Tajikistan
Bread is Life and Art in Tajikistan

by Rikki Quintana June 16, 2022

Poverty in Tajikistan has been a recurring challenge for hundreds of years, so feeding families has always been important. Bread or “non” is a precious staple, and it is frequently offered to guests as a symbol of hospitality. In rural areas, bread may make up a significant portion of daily caloric intake. If a Tajik has food but not non, he will often say he is out of food. Because bread is so precious, it’s important to avoid letting bread drop on the ground and you never throw it away. In...

Collaboration in Action: Storytelling from a Different Angle

by Rikki Quintana June 10, 2022

Collaboration is one of HoonArts' core values. (The other is authenticity. Stay tuned for future posts on that topic.) What does that look like in action? Or, as (my personal hero) Brene Brown would say, "How do we operationalize that value?"  As I tackle every item on my never-ending "to do" list, I ask myself, "Does this further collaboration in some way? Or, how can I bring collaboration to this task?"
