Pam arrived at The Hukilau yesterday — and I’m on a plane today, woot! In preparation for our panel on how to design and create a home tiki bar, we have been immersing ourselves in everything tiki. Pam now owns $240 of Sven Kirsten books — Tiki Modern and The Book of Tiki (affiliate links)… but my expenditure was only $10. Yes, I got Retro Crafty and used vintage kitchen cabinet hardware to make a set of tiki masks. This might be the wackiest crafty idea ever — but, who’d a thunk it — the tiki masks turned out great and look fabulous in my tiki-patio! Heck yeah there is more →
Kate has been so retro crafty lately that, I admit, I got kinda jealous. I can be retro crafty, too! Really! I was a Girl Scout for like 9 years, in the 1960s and 1970s — the crafting nirvana heyday. Pretty much the only five things we did at Girl Scouts, in order of time spent, were: (1) Craft, (2) Craft, (3) Craft, (4) Sell cookies, (5) Go camping. Notice the emphasis on crafting. Heck yeah there is more →
This holiday season has been a particularly crafty one at my house. Between making the three mini putz houses, the yule log centerpiece, and the shiny brite ornament tree — I’ve been busy. But with Christmas only a week away, and one more great idea for a quick and easy holiday craft dancing around like sugarplums in my head, I just had to make one more retro crafty video to share with everyone.
