Maddy's mug came out fantastic Wendy. I know how frustrating it is to spend so much time making a mug from start to finish only to have issues with the glaze, but your perserverance certainly paid off.
And it's a good thing you took photos of the mug with the dark background. You can hardly notice it's there in the picture of you holding it, it blends into your shirt so well.

The finished mug looks amazing! I agree with Swizzle, it blends into your shirt too well!

Waiting not so patiently for Hale to start telling his story. C'mon Hale!!!

Hale, are you going to have time this weekend too fill us in on your side of the story? We are all getting anxious. It is a great story! I want to know how you brought it all together.

We are at the Tiki Kon hotel. Our timing to come early has been great. For the first time we are going to the 1600 booth Portland Expo antique sale to look for tikis. We have found some in the town of Oalkand but all the other towns along the way have been tiki free. No photos until we are home but I've gotten a few cute ones of Dan.

TikiAno GROG is also a cute caveman. I agree it is my crawl army ready to take on some rum quarts. I think a red neon tube top would be perfect!



littlegiles thank you and thank you. I have not heard anthing about Maddy's reaction to her mug so I'm ready to hear from Hale Tiki.

Gene S Morgan I was really pleased that the glaze changes worked out and that Hale Tiki was pleased.

dartharnie wow, all of you (and you) are so very nice to me. I appreciate this so much.

swizzle what a great idea. I could make mugs painted to match the persons shirt so it is hidden as they walk around. I always learn from my mistakes. Remember what Colton the kiln repair person said about Aqua Net hairspray. Next time I'll try his trick to make glaze stick. I look forward to all your projects. Tiki Oasis will not be the same without you.

LoriLovesTiki lets to a YELL. HALE TIKI WE WANT YOUR STORY!!!

lunavideogames lets to a YELL. HALE TIKI WE WANT YOUR STORY!!!

Well dear friends we are off to the hunt. Cheers, Wendy

Hi Friends, we managed to walk through almost 1600 booths. Some were not open on Friday or setting up. Dan found some tiki treasures but there was almost nothing there. 6 booths had a few tikis. He found one plaster plaque that we think is tiki. When we are home I'll ask for help figuring it out. For $5 we couldn't pass it up.

I was bent over looking at tourist pamphlets at the hotel and a guy named Keith recognized me by my hair! He stayed at Brenda's Tiki Hut for the 2010 Sacramento Crawl and I met him there. It was such fun to see him again. We also ran into Bosco who will be lecturing today.

We got up early for breakfast so that when it is time to help set up Mahalo Tiki's booth we will be ready.

Time to run this will be a great day. It is cool and breezy on the Oregon/Washington border. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki I've been taking photos but the event has a professional photographer who hasn't stopped clicking since we get here. This event is over the top terrific. There has been a cool breeze along the river, this hotel is perfect for fun times. The event planners have done a wonderful job. We had fun riding a school bus to Trader Vic's for a fun meal.

Today we are back on the bus to see The Alibi, Hale Pele, even the home of Munktiki.

Last night I won a tiki candle at the trivia contest.

You know how I like hugs and this has been a hug fest. CY, Mahalo Tiki, tigertail777, Big Toe, Sophista Tiki, Mikey Tiki, Moai Mike, Polynesian Pattie, I'm leaving out so many.

It's great to hear from you Jon.


Bloody Good I sure wish I had a photo of you and your brother, meeting you both was a treat. Your smiles are infectious. If you get a chance someday post a photo here. I'd like everyone to meet you. Thank you for watching my thread.


---------------

It's time to run we have a full day of tiki fun ahead. Cheers everyone, Wendy

It was great finally meeting you guys in person, not to mention seeing your wonderful work "offscreen". Talking with you guys and some others I met from the board was the highlight of the event! Wanna know something funny? Today for the first time in Goodwill I found a tiki mug ( a tikifarm one) after your generous donation of the Orchids of Hawaii mug I think it started something! Don't worry though I won't become another Dan.

tigertail777 it was great hanging with you at the event. There should be only one Dan!

The event has ended and Dan and I are hitting the road for a slow (tiki hunt) trip home. I hope we have the same lucky that tigertail777 had at Goodwill, I'm sure we will stop at some of those.

I took lots of photos but by the end of day one the photographer that Greg and Justin hired has taken 3000 and posted them on the Tiki Kon facebook site. He made us all feel like stars by taking every ones photo constantly. It was lots of fun. This has been a great event.

We got to not only visit Munktiki's home it was as if we were having a family reunion. We've know Miles and Paul for many years and we loved seeing them again.

Well Dan's calling from the lobby below, got to run. Cheers, Wendy

MadDogMike it was wonderful. There are some photos posted by CY on the event page. August hugs on the horizon!

Kele home crawls are super too. VampiressRN has organized ours the last two years and Psycho Tiki D invented it for our area. Maybe you could Ask on the event page if there are people in your area that would open their homes for an hour or two and start a one day home bar tour event. Start small and it will grow. Ours is now three days long and every second is exquisite.

We have continued to have good luck hunting for tikis. We haven't found any in California for a long time but here in Oregon we have found so many that Dan's ecstatic. He's about to throw out our suitcases to make more room.

We are in Newport, Oregon and went to an underwater garden where a diver holds up star fish and other aquatic animals for us to look at, even though it was aimed at 5 year old we had fun.

We leave on the next leg of our journey in a few minutes. More tiki hunting. So far all I've bought is a bag of chocolate toffee and some nuts at a Dollar Tree store. Dan bought those too plus his tikis!

Work is coming closer to us by the hour. I'm missing playing with all the friends, new and old, that were at Tiki Kon but I miss posting and reading your comments here too. Cheers, Wendy
