ART OF TRAVEL We thought it would be fun to feature home-made travel products this month. All items are available from independent sellers on Etsy.com. “The answer to a lot of your life’s questions is often in someone else’s face. Try putting your iPhones down every once and awhile, and look at people’s faces. People’s faces will tell you amazing things. Like if they are angry, or nauseous, or asleep.” –Actress and writer Amy Poehler during a speech at Harvard University “It’s surprising that one out of every three American employees feels overqualified in their job. The data suggests that U.S. workers are less challenged by their current jobs. It also raises questions about how this will affect employee turnover and retention as the job market recovers.” –Jim Link, managing director of human resources for Randstad, a global provider of HR services DAVID SHANKBONE Starry Night Passport Cover (Etsy.com/shop/QuiltSewCover, US$8) This cover will keep your passport hidden from prying eyes, but make it identifiable to you. The cover has two flaps—one for your passport and one for any small items you want to keep in it. It measures five-and-a-half inches tall and is about eight inches wide when open. LEGO Minifig C-3PO Luggage Tag (Etsy.com/shop/crabappledesign, US$3) A luggage tag with an official LEGO C-3PO Minifig sticker will make you cool; it will also make it easier to ID your suitcase at baggage claim. Each tag is made from ultra-thick laminated plastic, with room for contact info on the back. “We believe that attracting, training and retaining qualified talents is crucial to our success. We are responsible and committed to investing in and nurturing local talents. This is not just for IHG, but for the sustained and greater prosperity of the hospitality industry as a whole.” –Winnie Ng, vice president of human resources for IHG Greater China on the opening of three new hospitality academies in China Crazy Eyes Sleep Mask (Etsy.com/shop/hollyernst430, US$12) Need some rest? Have to work the late shift? Or maybe you just want to freak your travel partner out. This sleep mask fits an adult. It’s made with upcycled denim and fabric leftover from larger projects, making this mask ecofriendly. The seller can make it with different eye colors, too. Compass Cufflinks (Etsy.com/shop/GlazedBlackCherry, US$17.99) These stylish steampunk functioning compass cufflinks are the perfect accessory for day or night. These are definitely statement pieces and will have those around you talking, but please don’t rely on these to get you home from no man’s land. mpiweb.org 27 http://www.Etsy.com http://www.Etsy.com/shop/QuiltSewCover http://www.Etsy.com/shop/crabappledesign http://www.Etsy.com/shop/hollyernst430 http://www.Etsy.com/shop/GlazedBlackCherry http://www.mpiweb.org
