The Gems Project

I hope you’re enjoying our featured photos and artwork. We are now linked with Volunteer Biographers and have recently launched an exciting photography/art project:

 ♡ When we show each other what we find beautiful,

we get a glimpse into each other’s hearts. ♡

Though everyone is welcome to contribute photos and/or artwork, we are currently working with artists who are between homes (homeless).  The challenge:  “Show me what you find beautiful.”  When we know what another person finds beautiful, we get a glimpse into their creative hearts.  Our creative hearts connect us instantly and joyously.  Every contributor, follower, volunteer, and artist will be a co-creator in this connection.

So far we have three volunteers working in San Francisco, Denver and Philadelphia.  If you are interested, please leave a comment below.  As soon as we have our website up, we’ll have a contact email and a Artist/Volunteer forum for Q&A.

(More here on our About page.)

To kick off the Gems Project, Sara Michele O’Sullivan (Niki Flow) will donate 100 percent of the profits from her book,  Elanthian Love Songs – A Bard’s Tale – a collection of 21 love- and story-poems, featuring the beautiful paintings of Stephanie Pui-Mun Law.
