IF YOU MISSED THE LIVE STREAM, HERE'S YOUR CHANCE TO WATCH THE RECORDING!
Does shopping for a Mother's Day gift or a birthday gift for a special woman in your life seem like a "social emergency"? Would you like to give that special woman a gift this year that will make her feel loved, confident, and connected to her own unique sense of beauty, values, and the world?
We set up this live-streaming event so that your shopping is a breeze. No one needs any more stress than they are already experiencing!
Denise Bucci, our "Chief Collaborator," who has been part of the HoonArts team from the evening HoonArts was born, joined founder Rikki Quintana for this inaugural HoonArts Live event. We shared some stories from HoonArts' history. We also showed off the beautiful and unique products we selected for the carefully curated Mother's Day Collection.
Although Mother's Day has now come and gone, you can still choose one of these fabulous items for that special lady on her special day. We also provided a sneak peek of some of the one-of-a-kind products that are not yet available for sale on our website.
This video is the perfect chance to get a closer look at some of our favorite products. We know that shopping online for handmade products can be challenging when you can't touch and feel the item. Sometimes you just want to get a better view or understand more details about a particular product before you push that "Buy Now" button. And you'll also hear more about the creation of these fabulous items and the artists who made them!
We hope you enjoy this up close and personal peek at the exotic world of Central Asia!

But my recent archeology adventures in Tajikistan did give me a new appreciation for the melding of history and culture in archeology. I also freely admit that the enthusiasm of the two archeologists in our 3 ‘Stans Tour group was contagious.
Our first archeological site in Tajikistan was . . .
Since this is Thanksgiving week in the US, I've been taking stock of the many things for which I'm grateful. (I keep a daily gratitude journal where I record five things I'm thankful for, which must be different from the five things noted the day before. This practice, recommended by my fantastic business coach Tania Vasallo, has helped me get through the craziness of the last few years.) My trip to the 'Stans in September and October ranks very high on the top 25 list of gratitude-inducing e...
I love food, but I’m not a true “foodie.” I rarely take photos of food for social media (though my daughter and I do exchange text photos of extra-indulgent desserts). I don’t collect recipes because I rarely cook these days. But food is such an integral part of any travel experience that I thought you would enjoy this “food tour” of Central Asia—incomplete as it may be.
