Let’s try something new!

Would you like the chance to win a piece of custom made sea glass jewellery and to see a live demo of the sea glass wrapping techniques I learned while we were on PEI? Join my Facebook Live event on Friday, August 5 at 1:30 pm EDT!

We’re coming under increasing pressure to host Facebook Live events at my day job, and I need to test-drive the technology. Freshly back from PEI and still thinking about my newly acquired sea glass wrapping habit, and idea was hatched.

One of our favourite activities during our PEI vacation this year was combing the beach for sea glass. (We have a long family tradition of enjoying the hunt!) We collected a lot (no seriously, A LOT!) of sea glass, and by chance toward the end of our trip I stumbled upon a woman offering affordable sea glass wire wrapping classes, so all five of us tried it out.

And a new addiction was born. It’s easy, it’s fun, and it’s something productive to do with the metric tonne of seaglass we currently have stashed all over the house. Must! Wrap! All! The! Seaglass!

So I’ve been having fun with it, and I guess it was at the back of my mind this week when I was back at work and thinking about how I might test out Facebook Live with a broadcast that was both straightforward for me and not mind-numbingly boring for the viewer. I had great feedback from friends on Facebook about the sea glass wire-wrapping…. and here we are!

Here’s the plan: I’ll be broadcasting live on Postcards from the Mothership’s Facebook page on Friday, August 5 at 1:30 pm EDT. A Facebook Live is basically an interactive webinar. You watch the video feed, and you can interact by typing comments on the page. It will be very, very informal. I just need to get a better understanding of how the technology works in real time, and I’d be super grateful for any comments you can post during the actual broadcast so I can see how it works. If you do participate (during the Live event only, not after it’s just a recorded video), I will enter you into a draw for a custom made piece of wire-wrapped sea glass. They’re quite lovely, if I do say so myself, and you’ll be delighted at how easy they are! (Shhhhh, don’t tell!)

Fun, right? Two birds with one stone (erm, piece of glass) and a shiny bit of wire. Win!

Edited to add: I don’t guarantee that I’ll keep it up forever, but for now you can view the archived broadcast on Postcards from the Mothership’s Facebook page!
