Feb 12th 2020 TONIGHT! LOVE-IN!!!

Love is an art, just as living is an art; if we want to learn how to love we must proceed in the same way we have to proceed if we want to learn any other art, say music, painting, carpentry, or the art of medicine or engineering. 
~Erik Fromm

February 12th, 2020 at Akbar, 9pm it’s the CraftNight LOVE-IN!!!

JP Craft Captain and KJ Teri present:
FEB 12, 2020 • 9pm

TONIGHT we celebrate LOVE. I do not mind if you’re sardonic or earnest. It matters not to me whether you are heartbroken, or heartsick. It’s fine if you have heartburn, or if you’re heartfelt, or hearthappy, or whatever.

Your heart is your business, and we’re here to LOVE IT.

Come in and sing, come in and craft. Make a valentine for someone you’ve never met. Croon some Hall and Oates while eating a delicious complimentary chocolate.

What do we have for you? SO MUCH LOVE!!!
Join us for a fun-filled evening of singing, drinking and crafting home made love tokens!!! You know us, we ONLY do deluxe, so get over hear and treat yourself to a very good time indeed!

Jan 15th 2020 Craft this Week…

With bright or sombre gear,
With smile or frown or song,
In a masque the months go gliding
Perpetually along.
First January is here,
With eyes that keenly glow—
A frost-mailed warrior striding
A shadowy steed of snow…
~Edgar Fawcett, “The Masque of Months,” 1878

January 15th, 2020 at Akbar, 9pm we begin CraftNight! The project still remains in the dark. I shall go a-spelunking in the garage and emerge heroic with the evening’s creative diversion!

Here we are at new beginnings, new ideals. Shiny-fancy-2020 how modern it sounds, how peppy to pronouce! It was so easy to adapt on paper to all the past teen years, switching out a 2 for a 3 and so on, right up to 19 and well WOW, now I catch myself erasing in my journal the number “19” and scrawling in a hasty 20!

Facts about the number 20: The number 20 is a SCORE, you know that? Like “Four score and seven years ago” Gettysburg Address etc. Most human infants grow 20 teeth for their first set. Twenty-twenty vision is perfect vision, and as for your vision for your year, I hope you’ve got your eyes on the prize(s).

Am I talking resolutions am I talking goals? Could be. Sure, that kind of stuff could be seen as pressure, but it’s also a barometer, a measuring stick, a way of delineating meaning to your life. Maybe you don’t hafta commit to yer Tinder date… but you could commit to you.

Giving yourself a kick in the pants to try a new thing, or keep doing an old thing, or just… doing ANY thing, well, that’s the stuff of giving yourself the gift of what you want.

What do you want? I want that for you to gurrrl.

The time for cold weather rumination continues, the deep thoughts while watching the bonfire, the empty page staring back at you, the unplayed keys, the untuned strings, you have so much potential before you. Take it and make it before someone grabs a bullhorn and starts ordering you around, before daffodils bloom, or ya know… maybe before the Iowa caucus.

See you at the Craft Table, Craft Captain JP

TONIGHT! Halloween Glitter Art! • Oct. 2nd, 2019

October was a beautiful month at Green Gables, when the birches in the hollow turned as golden as sunshine and the maples behind the orchard were royal crimson and the wild cherry trees along the lane put on the loveliest shades of dark red and bronzy green, while the fields sunned themselves in the aftermaths. Anne reveled in the world of color about her…. “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. It would be terrible if we just skipped from September to November, wouldn’t it?… ~Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874–1942), Anne of Green Gables, 1908
Oct 2nd, 2019 @9pm to ’round midnight or later…

NO Crafts this Week! Sept. 25th, 2019

The softened light, the veiling haze,
The calm repose of autumn days,
Steal gently o’er the troubled breast,
Soothing life’s weary cares to rest.
~Phebe A. Holder, “A Song of October,” in The Queries Magazine, Oct 1890
Sept 25th, 2019
