I'll add you to the list, thank you, Wendy

Mele Kalikimaka! When you get a chance can you send me a clean file of the TB's Sacramento art that Wendy is using for the decanters so I can useit for the crawl DOF glasses. Mahalo.

We hope to see everyone at the Hideaway Tuesday. Duane asked me to bring the decanter. It is still in clay and not molded yet. We are hard at work for the Forbidden Island mug/decanter. When those are finished then I will start on the decanter mold. Happy New Years, Wendy



I have started the list on page 27. If you would like a decanter send me an email or PM.

Doing some catching up here while I have some time. Met up with my Sacramento Ohana at The Hideaway last Tuesday night. It was my first time there and I was pleasantly surprised. Although not on par with our cousins to the west and south, there is potential for this humble start up and I look forward to seeing it develop into a full blown tiki establishment in the months and years to come. It is easy to be spoiled with all the places to choose from in the Bay and LA area. I am happy I can get here in under 20 minutes as opposed to an hour and a half to the next closest tiki bar, Trader Vic's in Emeryville.

I was able to see Wendy Cevola's newest creation up close and personal. It is a beauty, no doubt about it. The detail is incredible and I am glad Wendy chose to make a decanter this time around. I appreciate all the love and hard work both Dan and Wendy are doing. To take time out to represent our Sacramento Ohana goes above and beyond written word and I again cannot express enough our gratitude and awe for channeling her talents to recognize our Ohana here in the Sacramento area.

Here are a few pictures:

















Special thanks to Rugbymatt for steering Mariah in the method of tiki drink making! The Blackbeard's Ghost's were good and the company even better. See you all around!

Someone recently asked me about buying one of the Zombie Hut/Coral Reef mugs from our crawl. I told him I may be making some in the future. I have lost his PM and so if you are him please write to me again.

This past summer I poured 10 more of these mugs. The molds were further gone and it took hours of carving to put the lettering back. They have been waiting for me.


I planned on putting them on eBay to see what others from outlying areas will think they are worth. I was going to change them. In the end I am too super busy right now that I have decided to do three like those I did for the crawl. That will mean there were 3 artist proofs and 50 for the run. I will number these 48, 49 and 50. I owe one to the PM sender. Two may go on eBay.

The 7 that are left I will change up and I'll let you know how later. They are firing right now with just the glossy black. Working on these is like visiting an old friend.

Glazed the inside of each mug.

Hand painted the outside with three layers each. Too cold to go outside with a spray gun.

Finished the 10, time to fire them.

More photos to come. When the Forbidden Island Tiki Crates are done I will mold the decanter and off we will go. Cheers, Wendy

Hi Choptop, I sure had fun looking at your photos. I had a tour of my home! The Hideaway super fun gatherings occur at 6 pm on the second Tuesday of the month. So the next is on February 8th. I'm going to bring an example of the Tiki Crate mug that I made for Forbidden Islands 5th anniversary party to encourage everyone to attend. That event is April 21 a Thursday. I hope to see you at one of these. Cheers, Wendy

Hi Everyone and SacOhana, Here's the latest news. I have fired the Zombie mugs but I haven't had time to paint any. They will have to wait.

Dan and I made our first mold. It took us two days. I'm going to participate in the Tiki Bob sale by Grog. This was a practice so we can mold the decanter. I put photos on my craft thread showing the step by step. It starts on page 9.



It was very heavy messy work, its good to have Dan to help. Wendy

ps I hope you are feeling better Duane. I checked out Tiki Finds and wow we love our Tiki King mugs and that was one we had never seen before.

Well friends today Dan and I spent 7 hours straight in our cold garage and rainy backyard making a 6 sided mold of the decanter. I sure hope it turns out ok and that the detail shows up. We will open it this week when we are ready to make more molds a piece at a time while the sculpture is still inside. Right now it must weigh 50 pounds! Photos soon, cheers, Wendy

Here we go, the mold in progress. I want to be known as the first mold maker to use bubble wrap. I post the photos here and on my crafts thread since different people read different threads. If you read both I'm a lucky woman. Wendy

















































































I use a straw to blow mold soap out of the detail in the sculpture.


























We cleaned up after every pour of plaster to keep the dust from entering our home. We wore masks when ever we worked with it.


When I open this 6 sided mold I will do it one slab at a time and I will make another mold as I go. I'll post photos when that happens.

It took 5 times this amount of slip to make the Tiki Crate Mugs/Statues. Today we had these filled so that I can start of the Crawl decanters soon.



I sure hope that everyone makes it to the crawl in October, the more the merrier! I've started an order list for the decanters on page 27. This will help me make an appropriate number. I'm doing the Tiki Bob show on-line this year and next year I'll put one of the decanters on.

Cheers, Wendy

Hey my fellow tiki aficionados and local Sacramento Ohana-

We are officially 7 months away from the next Sacramento Capitol Home Tiki Bar/Living Space Tour which is slated for October 7th through the 9th, 2011. Time has a way of passing quickly, so this is just a reminder of the event.

In an effort to start solidifying our schedule, I am asking anyone who is thinking about hosting for this event to let me know as soon as you can. We are hoping to see some new locales from our Sacramento Ohana this time around. We had several people indicate they would be interested in hosting in 2011, so here is your opportunity to share your love for tiki and show off your space. We would also love to include anyone who has hosted any of the previous tours. Last year we had approximately 50 attendees and I believe it would have been more if not for the loss of Tiki Kate at the same time last year.

Looking to fill the following dates:

Friday evening October 7th:

Filled by Rugger's Reef (Rugbymatt)-time to be determined but guessing 7:30 p.m.-11:00 p.m. following dinner at a yet to be determined location.

Saturday October 8th:

11:00 a.m-1:30 p.m.

2:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m.

5:00 p.m.-??

Sunday October 9th:
11:00 a.m-1:30 p.m. Wendy and Dan Cevola

2:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m. stevesoto (Steve)

5:00 p.m.-?? Brenda's Tiki Hut (Brenda,tenative)

The schedule and times are subjective to change as we get closer as we need to determine if The Hideaway or Swanbergs will be included in this event.

All in all, we would like to spend more time at each stop, but if more hosts volunteer, we can flex the schedule around as needed.

As you have probably seen in previous posts, Wendy Cevola is extending her incredible talent to our local Ohana yet again this year and has created a one-of-a kind Tiki Bob decanter as a tribute to another fallen Sacramento tiki establishment. The detail on this is a sight to behold and we thank both Wendy and Dan for their selfless commitment to making this event masterpiece a reality for the second year in a row. If you have not signed up to purchase one of these, make sure you do. Wendy, I hope you have me down on the list to purchase one of each of your mugs! (I am looking forward to the Missionaries Downfall, FI Crate and Lanai mugs).

Matt Hull is coordinating the event drinking glass, which will feature the artwork Wendy used to create the decanter and these will also be available for purchase at each stop along the way. We will also try to incorporate the Tiki White Elephant Trade and Tiki Garage sale somewhere along the way.

With all that being said, once again, if you are interested in hosting this year, let me know right away. It is never too early to begin planning this event.

As a side note, this will be my last year coordinating this event. I think it might be time to hand the tiki torch off to a new volunteer to run with the ball. I have had a blast doing this the past six years and appreciate all the assistance, ideas and above all, the hosts who have opened up their homes to us all. Like anything thing else in life, it is time for change and I am confident whomever takes this over will breathe fresh life into an already successful event. I have made some truly fantastic and amazing friends and have learned so much about tiki from these times together sharing the common interest we all love.

Please PM or email me if you want to participate or if you have any questions.

Mahalo,

Psycho Tiki D

Thank you Duane for providing excellent leadership and activity guidance over the years, you will be missed, but like you say, it is good to keep the torch moving. I am opting out of hosting this year, but can certainly be counted on as a back-up if necessary. It was so great to see new folks hosting last year, and I look forward to seeing other folks host this year...it really is a blast and ya can't get any better than Tiki Ohana for a good time.

At our last meeting, there was a strong support for inclusion of a couple of Sacramento businesses in the crawl and sure we can figure out which would work best (especially with the experiences of the Tiki Tuesday events.)

The excitement over Wendy's decanter is mounting as she posts pictures of her progress...what an awesome piece of art...we are very lucky to have Wendy as our star artist here in Sacramento. And a shout out to Dan...we know you do a lot to make it happen too.

Laura and I are still slowly working on the Sac Ohana Recipe Book to be available for the 2012 crawl. I also have some suggestions for that crawl that I will share at our St Patiki Party in a couple of weeks.

For those of you that are thinking about hosting in 2011 but not sure you will be ready, just link up with any of the past hosts and we can certainly give you hints on how to get your place in shape for the event.

LOOKING FORWARD TO A FABULOUS 2011 SACRAMENTO HOME CRAWL!!!
