Bus Craft! • May 3rd, 2017

This Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017 from 9pm until midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Bus Craft!
$3 Donation Please 
$4 Drink specials! Akbar: Come Alive! You’re in the Akbar Generation! 

Ah, the joys of public transportation! We made Snail photoframe kits last week in an effort to slow things down, you know, like a snail. This week we’ll step up our pace and honor the BUS.

It’s a paper bus craft, I’ll have markers on hand so you can develop your own transit company, and I’ll have plenty of sparkles and crafty bits you can use to decorate your ride.

Some of you really don’t love the bus, and yeah, the bus is not always fabulous. But that’s kind of why the bus rocks. Traveling by bus is traveling with an “open sensibility” in that you’ve just got to know that just about anything can happen. There’s no controlling farts, people grooming themselves, people talking out of their faces to themselves or others or who knows, people sometimes have their headphones or even their speakerphones turned up intolerably loud.

Undeniably, when you’re on the bus, it’s all about “us” and not about you. Because you’re carpooling, you’re contributing to cleaner emissions, it’s even safer on a bus than being in a car. You’re helping stop pollution and making the city more walkable and bikable, and you’re part of the city’s mood, the pulse of our together-lifeforce. It’s a civic-minded way to get from one place to the other. Our city isn’t getting smaller or less congested, public transportation is the future, so let’s start by appreciating our BUSES and our BUS DRIVERS!!!!

See you at the Craft Table,

BINGO Tonight • Phone Cozy Tomorrow • May 26th/27th, 2015

space_ham

This Wednesday, May 27th, 2015 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!! Project: Phone Cozy  
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials, confidence in motion…  

Extra Info bottom of this email about some thangs.

Now then…

Phones are great, they do a lot of great things, and also we should be smashing, forgetting and unplugging them and throwing them in the river. But despite my beliefs, we’re making phone cozies this week at CraftNight, because you probably need one. Everybody needs one.

You need a phone cozy because you’ll drop your phone, and a phone cozy will protect it from getting a nasty crack in it’s zillion dollar touch-sensitive screen.

You need a phone cozy because germs are all around us, and some of those germs will stick to your phone and get on your face or be transported back and forth from your dirty paws and ewwww, gross.

You need a phone cozy because you live in a world where your personal style says EVERYTHING about you and how much success and poise you’ve managed to cultivate in this cutthroat world of professionals. When you answer your phone in business meetings, colleagues will swallow back tears of jealousy and rage because they’ve never seen a phone cozy like yours. Your custom phone cozy will be noticed by the elite, they’ll take your hand and raise you up to the throne of riches and prosperity, and your rivals will be defeated.

If you want all of that, then get thee to Akbar where the spirits flow, the laughter is long, everyone is attractive, and your crafts are waiting.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

Jumbo Clothspin • January 21st, 2015

chipz

TONIGHT! January 21st, 2015 from 9pm until midnight at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Jumbo Clothespin
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Special >>>> There’s mud in your eye-la, have a Lyla! (ginger beer and whiskey)
NEXT WEEK: Tuesday January 27th *** 8pm -10pm *** Bet Yer Bottom Bingo!

This week’s craft is a long time coming, I’ve ALWAYS wanted to do a jumbo clothespin craft, but jumbo clothespins are not cheap! Many times I’d lament the price and go “Ho Hum… someday.” Well SOMEDAY IS NOW!!!

CraftNight Lieutenant Vero LeBron and I found a shopping cart FULL of the things at discount prices in FOUR different colors! Such a thing is not likely to happen for quite some time, it’s not easy to find reasonably priced jumbo clothespins in the wild.

So what the heck do you do with these things? Well you decorate them! Then you keep stuff clipped together with them, like notes or cards or whatever. Some people get all crazy and actually mount the things upside down on a wooden bar on the wall so that they have a handy place to hang office papers or paintings that need to dry. Makes a very attractive photo holder also, sits on a table nicely!

You can cut letters out of felt and glue them onto your jumbo clothespin, you can stick gems and baubles to it, make pretty shapes from fabric or paper, or just draw all over it with permanent marker. As a bonus, you can use the jumbo clothespin to hang up any jumbo laundry you have around the house.

See you at the Craft Table,
