Terra Cotta Clay Playtime • April 18th, 2018

TONIGHT! Wednesday, April 18th, 2018 at Akbar it’s CRAFTNIGHT! 
Project: Terra Cotta Clay Playtime! 

*******$4 PABST/TECATES • $5 Cocktail Special, livin’ on a cloud!        
*********$3 suggested donation, please! #ScrappyNonProfitThanksYou  

OMG we haven’t had a CLAY NIGHT since I-don’t-know-when!!! Seriously, it’s been a dog’s age, this stuff is SO MUCH FUN! When’s the last time you played with some EARTH?  I’ll give you a smallish blob of clay and you can sculpt it to your heart’s content. It’s air dry, so I’ll have a cardboard tray in which for you to take it home. Once it dries (overnight, or a lil’ longer), you can paint it or preserve it or just start wearing/displaying it immediately!

There will be popsicle sticks and toothpicks for you to use as sculpting tools. You can really do a lot with a popsicle stick or a toothpick when it comes to sculpting. Write a message, carve a shape, hollow out a section, it’s easy. Make an amulet, a mini statue, some beads, a ring holder, a tiny box, a pen holder, whatever you want! I’ll have some idea sheets on hand to get you started.

The moon’s crescent builds, we’re heading toward a bright full moon! It’s traditionally called the PINK MOON because of all the lil’ pink flowers smattering the lowlands during springtime called “ground phlox.”

Consider the ground phlox. It’s a “new and exciting thing” brought about from a dormant, hibernating condition. It survived winter and guess what? SO DID YOU! What’s blooming in your life this spring season? What’s burbling up to the surface, and what shall you do to ensure that you’ll thrive like a wildflower?

For even in an age of illuminated screens and tiny devices dictating our schedules and job stuff and distractions, there is the oldest illuminated guidance of all: the moon. We’ll always have moon to help us track time, as long as it’s circling us, and as long as we’re circling the sun. And this upcoming full moon is also known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, Egg Moon and the Fish Moon.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

Ant Plane Caterpillar: Choose! • March 18th, 2015


This Wednesday March 18th, 2015 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Noteholders in THREE varieties! Ant, Plane, Caterpillar! 
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials! Your Springtime Cocktail Headquarters. 

Don’t just stand there like a ninny with your notes in your hands, MAKE A NOTE HOLDER!
You’ll have three different possibilities:

ADORABLE ANTS – Ants are associated with diligence, cooperation and industry. They can also stand for social conformity and mass action. This one is a twee little kit with puffballs and googly eyes, a clip and a magnet for you to attach to the ant. It works! It’s an ant, it’s very anty.

PLEASING PLANES – Say you want your notes to be held in a higher consciousness, this plane note holder is perfect for that! Remind yourself daily of the aspirations you have and new heights to which you are headed! The plane note holders are red, yellow and blue, and are just the sort of bright thing to brighten up a fridge or dungeon lair.

CUDDLY CATERPILLARS – If you want your note holder to carry an aura that signifies an era of change, this is the one for you. People come to Los Angeles to become themselves, and this note holder can remind you daily that you manifest each day as you choose. Comes with a leaf for the caterpillar to sit on, it’s a real humdinger!

Coming Up
• March 24th >>> Bet Yer Bottom Bingo! 8pm – 10pm [Girls, Boys, Balls, Booze, Prizes!]
APRIL 1st >>> Bunny Necklaces and EGG HUNT! Special Prizes… if you can find ’em! 
* April 26th >>> Your Craft Captain is getting married, come to the reception at AKBAR!!! Bring your friends and celebrate Lesbian LOVE! There will be karaoke from 8 to 10, dancing, drink specials, lesbian antics, entertainment and legally wedded bliss. 8:30pm until 1:45am Woooo!!!!

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain
