What's going on?

Just having some apple juice this morning and thinking about what to do today. But before we do that I need a drum roll please, Congratulations! Diane. You are the record holder for the most stamps purchased in one day -- our super stamper.

Special thanks to my morning "crew" those of you who come before 8 (you keep me up, so keep coming by) and have been giving me great ideas. Now, the fun part of making them.

August is going to be lots of fun ... the kids start school. (evil laugh) Need to get organized. 50th Anniversary for Hawaii. Wow. Look for the charm making classes on Sat. if not going to try afterwork. If you have any suggested time/days let me know. Otherwise, watch for the calendar coming soon.

Don't forget to check us out in Island Family Magazine -- we've been very fortunate to have some of our projects included.

Watch for us out on the street (just outside the store). We'll be doing demos and make-it 'n take-its outside the store if the weather permits on certain days.

Alcohol Inks

This is so fun...especially since I never did this before. Tried it on a glass ornament. Then acetate...oooo...a heiko bag (good for that special gift bag...everyone is always looking for a "new" one.). First you add the color (used blue and silver) added it on to the stamper pad. Then stamp and stamp on the object that you want to color. So neat. I want to make more. I'll go look for more things to stamp. lol. Watch the video and see how easy it is.

Relay for Life

Summer is here and lotta stuff to do and time to look back at the first half of 2009. Lots to take in and just in the past few weeks -- MJ and all the other stuff, but yet there is so much to look forward to in the months to come -- State of Hawaii's 50th; my birthday; Aloha Week; Halloween (candy! costumes!); Thanksgiving (turkey); and of course Black Friday! (shop shop shop 'til you drop!).

The biggest thing is my birthday this year. Since I'm a survivor, now, just like many of you who have shared with me. Your sharing has given me lots of strength, how much some of you will never realize.

Come by July 11th, Magic Island 7pm Saturday to 7am Sunday. Mahalo for those who made a donation to the American Cancer Society, through us or another source. Come and do the make 'n take. C ya there!

Lunch & hamsters


Well, I'm off to eat lunch -- corned beef and cabbage. (mmm mmm good) I just finished doing the demo on the beaded hamster charm.

Let me know what you think. Not bad if I do say so myself. I have kits made now, so come by. If you couldn't come today then we're doing it again next next Wednesday. Next week is the owl. (getting the kits ready for next week)
(Dar thanks for taking the picture and showing me how to use my camera.)
