How’s your soul’s place in the fabric of things? Well, we’ve got sun catchers at CraftNight because it’s officially SUMMER and while things are gonna get hot, crafts are going to be cool as always. These lil’ clear plastic keepsakes are of various themes, and you fill them in with suncatcher paint, wait for them to dry, and then you hang them up in front of a window and it’s just lovely.

It’s that time of year when Los Angeles comes ALIVE. It’s time for pool parties, cookouts, tank tops, flip flops, stargazing, tan lines, hammocks, and all the summer lovin’ you can handle. Step into that summer light and shine. Allow light and warmth to find you, let’s get into expansion, sunshine, life with fervor. Because you’re wild and free, forget about someday, that shit’s just air and moonbeams, you’ve got now, let’s have some goddamn fun.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

Tonight! PAINTY PAINT! • June 13th, 2018

TONIGHT: Wednesday, June 13th, 2018 at Akbar it’s CRAFTNIGHT! 
Project: Pride Paper Craft!

*******$4 PABST/TECATES • $5 Cocktail Special, it’s heating up, cool down with a beverage!       
*********$3 suggested donation, please! 

The colors of the rainbow will be on FULL DISPLAY tonight, ready for you to paint a project of your choosing. It’s GAY PRIDE MONTH so we’re embracing HUES. I’m talkin’ about the colors you see in the world, the colors you see in yourself, the colors of your friends, lovers, families. Come in and get a brush and touch color, bring color to life in the spirit of the rainbow of the things you hold dear from the past, the present, the future.

Because there’s something to be said for appreciating and eyeing color, but it’s another to make color, to use it. When you interact with a spectrum of your own creating, access to knowing attaches you to the world. Touching colors brings heart to seeing, because you’re part of it, you really really are! You can paint in solid colors, or add patterns, or paint a specific scene, object, or message. Perhaps you’ll give someone the keepsake you’ve made, or you’ll keep it for yourself.

As you paint, and if you can, see if you can free what’s been asleep at your core. Maybe it’s just annoyance at traffic, maybe it’s the scone you didn’t eat because you’re trying not to eat too many scones, perhaps it’s words you wanted to say but kept to yourself, all of these things are profound and worth exploration. We have big things and small things, we’re people… there are a lot of us, and it’s complicated.

If you have developed a callus over some part of your thinking, see if you can squeak some of those squashed or hidden emotions to the surface… with paint. It doesn’t have to be a big ol’ thang, it can be imperfect and silly or even kinda bratty. Whatever it is, challenge yourself to make it be real, an unfolding of your heart into the life you’re living.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain
