TONIGHT! Wednesday, May 24th, 2017 from 9pm until midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Flower Pot Craft!
$3 Donation Please
$4 Drink specials! Akbar: We Bring Good Things to Life!
Flower pots are on the docket for tonight, your very own terra cotta fantasy come true. There will be lots of paint, lots of gems, lovely bits and baubles for you to contentedly adhere to your finished gardening container. It’s a pretty deluxe setup, I’ve been giving you the extremely easy craft kits lately, this one’s a nice mixture of both structure and freeform, I feel like it’s a “two cocktail project” to be sure. I’ll hand you a flower pot, and then you pick out a brush, the colors you want to paint with, and the decor you want to glue to it once the paint has dried. This is an excellent “gift craft” in that once it’s complete, it’s the perfect gift for you or someone special.
It’s a gardening celebration! We’ve had such a great rainy season, it seems only right to coax forth vegetation and encourage growth. I mean, what’s May for, anyway? Soon it will be the halfway mark of the 12-month session we call a year… which feels incomprehensible to me. Let’s savor this 5th month, enjoy the breeze, the flowers, the swirling clouds and long light of extended days. Let’s plant some seeds and watch them grow!
The #ResistMarch is June 11th, BE PREPARED!!! I’m leading FOUR special CraftNight sign salons with The City of West Hollywood! Find out ALL the information here, the next two are June 2nd and 3rd, read below to find out more!
See you at the Craft Table,
