Wendy, it was good to finally meet you and Dan. You're even nicer in person than online! I'm glad you both made it home safely.
If you haven't been yet, check out the Cabrillo Aquarium in neighboring San Pedro sometime. The Maritime Museum, Battleship Iowa and SS Lane Victory in San Pedro are also worth a visit if you like maritime history. For amazing ocean views the Fort MacArthur Museum and Point Fermin Lighthouse can't be beat.

Wendy, looks like a great trip- sorry I wasn't able to make it up there. I'll have to go visit Buzzy for some of that cash....

Garbage can on the freeway? Yikes. LA can get you at any time- so glad you guys were okay- sounds terrible.

Er, yes, I believe it's spelled 'Don's.' (heh heh).

Look forward to receiving the Crawl mug when it ships out....

I've seen the "arrow thru the head" gag before

But never the "fish thru the head" gag


Glad you had a great trip

tikilongbeach Lori, thank you for the tip. You are very nice and I enjoyed meeting you. I do wish I'd gotten a photo.

TikiAno now that was funny. I'm going to leave it. Buzzy said he sold more at Marketplace in 5 hours than in the whole weekend at Oasis. It was good to see he and Christina.
I opened the kiln and there was the glaze test of your present. Thank you it's a fun color.


hang10tiki you are very welcome.

MadDogMike you noticed. Here was our first photo and then we improved it with the fish in the head photo.


I also took this photo of Jungle Ginger and Doug Horne. GROG tweaked it for all of us.



=============================================

Update on the Sacramento Crawl mug.

Opened the kiln, success!


All these yet to do so I


loaded the kiln again.


Success!


So I loaded the kiln


success!


Success close up.



So in went the last load.


Success!


On the way into the house.


It took a week to get them all fired but now I know they are ready for the crawl and we can go phew and wipe our brows.

All total we did 50 of these mugs in brown for the crawl. Dan required 9 in different colors for his work and they are in his collection. I have one for myself and
one AP for hang10tiki and 3 more left to glaze and sell in the future.

So for a total of 64 mugs it took 16 pints of paint. I saved the empties until the end so that I'd know. They are double sized mugs so a regular size mug would have taken half as much.


Into recycle.


It always feels great to get to this stage after so many days of labor. Soon I'll be onto new projects and challenges. Maybe as soon as tomorrow!

Cheers, Wendy

Those mugs look great! I bet you feel like you have accomplished a big feat seeing how nicely they have turned out. Good job.

Yep, that's a lotta Crawl mugs! (And even more glaze!) Wendy, I now may have to call in Don't the Beachcomber (or perhaps will become part of the name of my new home bar (coming soon)). Glad Buzzy did great at the Marketplace, he definitely deserves it (and I always root for my home team (in SD).

Grog's photo is hysterical, too funny.

Glad the test tile came out well, though it does look pretty lonely on that kiln shelf.... I still don't know if that glaze has been released, I really liked using it but haven't seen it for sale yet (though I did stash a way a few of those sample bottles).

Mike, pretty awesome. I was waiting for Jon (or Grog, post-surgery) to go photoshop crazy on that one, but your approach is just as, if not more, funny.

That's a great mug you guys.
When will we see a photo of the different colors of the Dan-o collection?
What's the NEXT project?

Jon, I agree. In honor of Grog feeling better soon, thought I'd post here, too (as well as the TC Infirmary)


(hopefully not offensive to all, it's, um, "borrowed" from the interweb).

littlegiles thank you so much. I feel a bit of a rush when a huge project is finished. We have decided to try to finish before the summer starts next year. Oh oh, we better get going on it tomorrow!

lunavideogames I should repeat my note to littlegiles. I sure do like those comments.

TikiAno Buzzy would like that. We root for him too. GROG is a photoshop pro but I like all the photos each of you have done.

hang10tiki you will get to see Dan's crawl mug collection after the crawl has ended in October. Next up will be some Tiki Bob conversions and then the next wish list will open. I have to get some things done here. I'm trying to make some room for myself but everywhere there are tikis and more tikis. But that's a good thing, right?

TikiAno I will be thrilled when GROG feels up to visiting my thread again.

Atomic Tiki Punk you too. Did you see the funny photo of Doug with your wife?

=================================================================

Even when all the mugs are done there are more tasks to complete.



First I printed 55 photos of the mug so I can have a numbered and autographed one with each mug. Five extra for mistakes. I wrote 1/50, 2/50 etc. and Wendy Cevola on each one.


Dan taped the bottoms of all the boxes and stacked them on the couch which is covered with a sheet.


Then I wrote all the numbers on the boxes twice so I can find them easily when they are in my cars truck during the crawl. SCM = Sacramento Crawl mug.


All done and in order so I can match the mug to the box.


For Kele, she likes Dan's rear end. The mugs are everywhere.


The army.


The marines.


The house is a tiki mess.


Each mug is matched to it's card and held by a rubber band.


Dan wrapped each mug and sealed it in it's box and taped it shut. Behind him is a table of things we are selling to Mahalo Tiki for his shop. On the couch are things I sold on eBay (we lost our shirts). Our cat is clawing our furniture so I have cloth over each end of the couches to keep her away from them.


Now the mugs are really done. They are ready to go in the trunk of my car when the crawl is on and I sell them from there. I had one cancellation. So there is one mug left.


It feels really good to be at this point so soon. The first crawl mug I made was started in August and finished just before the crawl started. Every year we have begun earlier and this one was done sooner than any of the years past.

Many happy days ahead. Wendy
