I love love love the photos guys. Thank you littlegiles and tigertail777. I really like to know who writes here and this is a wonderful way. tigertail777 did we not include the leather string with the necklace? Dan boxed them for me. I can send you one. I got carried away with the 7's!!! littlegiles I've not watched Sponge Bob but I was just told he's amazing!

Hale Tiki I hope you'll have time to keep coming back I love your posts.

WaikikianMoeKele I worried too but no problems with anything out of the kiln. Did your statue arrive? Do you need my home address?

We are up early and getting ready to crawl. Our friend Joanne flew in for the event and that makes it even more special. If I have any energy left at the end of each day I'll post photos.

Thank you all, Wendy

Wendy, my Waikikian Bob arrived today. He is SOOOOOOOO WONDERFUL! I will get someone to take of pic of him with me tonight & post it.
Did you send a bill, cuz I wasn't sure how much to send to you? I've been checking my pm's several times a day, but haven't seen anything from you recently.

SPONGE BOB! Dale, I knew there was a reason that I liked you! ROFLMAO!

Wendy, as promised

Just bear in mind that when this was taken, I was already half way into my adult beverage (which I cropped out of the picture).
btw, this was taken sort of on top of my 'office.' Because the office where I normally work is plagued with black mold & recurring problems which wreek havok with my system, I am working at home until our new office is completed, perhaps still this year.

WaikikianMoeKele I always feel so relieved to know something has arrived. Kele after all the years of knowing you its great to have a photo so I can think of you when I see your name. Thank you.
hang10tiki very cool. I didn't have a good photo of the shelf with my mug at La Mariana. You two are such a dear couple. I love the photos and especially the rock behind the Wendy and Dan shelf.
19tikichef62 I'm so glad you are watching your mugs progress. Right now we are one the crawl and exhausted. Yesterday I drove 230 miles (I like to be the driver) and then I gave out and Dan drove the last 30. We crawled to 5 homes and Minnie's the tiki restaurant bar built for the wife of the owner of the Stockton's Islander. The house is over 100 years old the restaurant opened in 1955.

Here are a few photos of where we went.

Vic/Jungle Trader





Minnie's






CDTiki's wife Diana invited the gang over because we had some extra time after Minnie's. What a terrific extra stop.





The Blue Kahuna's, Oh no. I took so many photos of Dr.TikiMojo's new Hawaiian tattoo that I forgot to take photos of Greg's new home. Greg please post some here.



LittleLola's
Well shoot, I must have been more tired than I realized. No photos here at all.

ChopTops
At least I got one of his backyard volcano.


I'll have to see what others post on the crawl thread and steal a few for here.

Thanks for checking in. Cheers, Wendy

Today it begins again and we are so excited to continue this journey. Thank you VampiressRN for all the planning it took to pull this together. You've done a magnificent job. If it was only yesterday it would have been a great crawl. It's hard to believe we have two more days of fun ahead. Cheers, Wendy

More photos are showing up here. I'm saved The Blue Kahuna and LittleLola are on this link!_________________

Day Two of the Sacramento Ohana's Crawl

We had another super fun day.

The Ohana stopped at Swanberg's a wonderful Hawaiian shirt and misc. shop. We were so tired that we missed this. Luckily its near to us for future visits.

We started at Brad(alohacurrent) and Melanie's.
Brad and Joanne.

Dan and Wendy(that's me!)

A Hawaiian retreat.

Live music in the backyard.

The audience. Surf music kept Dan glued to his chair.

Selling mugs in the parking lot to Rugby Matt and TikiHula

Did they buy??? Yep. On the right is Mr. Aloha a new friend.

Jim and Julie, more new friends.

Tiki TNT and Savage Tiki decided that the mug should be used during the crawl. I loved that idea.

Brad and Melanie thank you for such terrific food.

Next stop was at Rugby Matt's where there was also a Marketplace with Tacky Tiki and Mahalo Tiki to name a couple.
Dan, Cathi, Ken

Steve, Laura and Tacky Tiki sitting.

Audrey the dearest person you'll ever meet.

LittleLola with slowhandtikiman!

Thank you Matt for a great party.

Our Last wonderful, terrific fun spot was at VampiressRN/Marlene's beautiful home.
She organized this three day crawl and boy have we benefited from her efforts. We are sad that we are about to start the last day of the crawl.
Vamp had Frank Sinatra singing the night away.

What a great show.


Vamp you have gone over the top with entertainment and terrific food. The banner ad for the crawl and even Moai chocolates by Mahalo Tikis daughter.

Thank you so very very much. Wendy and Dan

Now we are off for another great day. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy, looks like you and Dan (and everyone else) thoroughly enjoyed yourselves and got a well deserved break.

Jon, I know you just got back from vacation but you could have at least shaved for the picture!

Wendy!!!

I got the War God!

Do you pour your mugs that thick, or is it just because it's a statue? I was excited when I picked it up. I love the heft. It's a lovely size too. I bet the originals fit in the hand very very well. It's great! Love the glaze. The wahine likes it too! I haven't taken a photo of it yet, because it doesn't have a home yet, but I'll be making one out of the first trim piece that I made over in the carving section!

Looks like everything is going well, and the tiki crawl looks like a blast!

And I may not be posting all the time, but it means getting more work done for the tiki bar and home!

hang10tiki oh boy have we had fun these past three days. I got lots of hugs.
MadDogMike I love the pirate ship and your grandsons. Everyone check it out!
http://www.mgilbert.net/PSTH.html
Hale Tiki I like to make all my ceramics super thick and heavy. I want them to last.

Today I forgot my digital camera. BUMMER! We do keep a camera in the glove compartment of the car in case we get in a wreck with a pirate ship or something. So I got it out and took photos but now I have to get them developed. Meanwhile I'll steal photos from others on the crawl to post here.

Tomorrow we'll be back working on ceramics. This was the best Sacramento Crawl so far. The hosts were so generous and showed us all a great time. Big hugs for them all.

Cheers, Wendy

slowhandtikiman, thank you for the Brenda's Tiki Hut photos. I was shocked when I took my disposable camera to get it developed and was told I had to mail it away and wait 2 weeks for the return photos. The times they are a-changin.

It's hard to get back to work after three days of the ultimate fun but on day one after the crawl we did get back to accomplish some things.

First we brought all the dusty bisque back outside.

We got the tiny nozzle for high pressure water.

While freezing and drenched in shorts and yes wet t-shirts we hosed off the ware.

After finishing the lot we hauled it back into the house and got into a hot shower.



I worked on 19tikichef62's Bob. To glaze this takes days.

I work on one glaze then another. Back in forth to get the three layers.

Clear on top of under-coat.

What's left is one more coat of the black lava and the red and yellow inside.


I hope to finish this mug today and to start on dartharnie's Wolf Man Bob.

It feels good to be posting again and knowing you visit, cheers, Wendy

Thanks so much for sharing the Crawl pics with us. Looks like everyone had a great time.

That latest Bob mug is looking stupendous as usual. Just amazing how something that looks so muddy now can turn into something so beautiful in the kiln. LOVE IT!

- Dale
