1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / UNITED STATES / Re: Craftster Meetup 2020 - Aloha Hawaii! on: May 06, 2019 07:43:24 PM
Oh yes, Ive heard about poke shops becoming a mainland thing... there actually was (and I think its still ongoing) a situation with a Chicago poke shop suing Hawaii businesses because they told HI locals they stole the name Aloha.

....

It might still be a touchy subject here!


But seriously, all yalls better come here and try real poke!! Smiley

Yeah!  Thank you Mountains and Clouds!

We had tons of bouganvillea in our neighborhood in Aiea growing up.  Maybe I can go on a recon trip out there to get some for us?  They are nice in haku leis. 


It was all over our old neighborhood in Kaimuki too... (and Im pretty sure near us now as well). Ill be on the lookout for it!

Yahh! I step away for a day and the discussion explodes!  Getting caught up.....

[Side note, Mistress Jennie, politics aside, I am a fan of Mazie right now. She suddenly has this I-have-cancer-and-I'm-an-angry-woman-so-I'mma-say-what-I'mma-say attitude lately Tongue ]

Anyway, back to discussion... we don't have bouganvillea in our yard. I'm currently working on Ti, but we don't have many leafy things at the moment (but seriously, it's my current project, which should pick up speed once the school year is over!), so it depends on how much I can grow in the next year, haha!

I am not sure how previous meets have gone, but another thing to take into consideration is the amount of physical stuff people will end up with after crafting (since I'm guessing everyone will end up flying here).

As far as any workshops, etc. that need supplies that might be difficult to transport, things can be sent directly here ahead of time to save luggage space, etc. if needed.  (One thing to be aware of is our tight agricultural restrictions, so we can't really have plants, soil, meat, fruit, etc. coming in.)

Since it's in the summer, I should have time on either side of the meet to play tour guide for other activities. HA! I could even make a week-long itinerary of "optional activities" or something for anyone who might be interested (like hiking, beaching, etc.). I also sometimes volunteer with the invasive species committee... if anyone is interested in doing a group volunteer trip or anything, we might be able to organize something if we know ahead of time!

We have a purple crown flower (giant milkweed), which was Liliuokalanis (supposedly) favorite flower for making lei. We recently cut it WAAAAY back, but if it recovers enough, I am happy to donate those flowers to lei-making efforts. Smiley I only have a few white orchids, and they never flower. I can probably donate a variety of plumeria too, but those die so fast!

I feel like Ive heard talk about the Aloha Swap Meet *possibly* being shut down at some point. But Im really hoping it wont happen, as they closed the Kam swap meet a few years ago. Sad (I think there is always talk about re-doing the stadium or building something else there. *sigh*)
[sorry to be Debbie Downer. I hope it stays open!]

Also, just leaving a couple more photos to help the fence-sifters decide... Tongue

YAY!!! I just caught up with everyone. I am unbelievably excited that I get to meet Craftster people in real life!  It's true that it is beautiful here, but we often feel very far away. Tongue

Hi Rackycoo! I was signed up for this swap, but ended up having a crazy November moving between jobs, and did not end up making any claims. Is there a way you can remove my feedback entirely? (So sorry...)


No problem at all; your feedback has been removed. Thanks for letting me know. Smiley



Thank you so much!

Hi! I'm Sara in Honolulu, HI (USA).
I am happy with all art, so feel free to choose "artist choice," for real.  (However, please don't send any plant, animal, or soil matter, as we have big agricultural restrictions : )


Here are my themes:

-moon on a string

-tarot

-zen gardens

-I dream of jellyfish

-Pierrot Lunaire (or Pulchinella, Petrouchka, etc.)

-Peace (peace sign, or your own interpretation of peace)

-"jumping Jehoshaphat!

-Solstice (summer or winter)

-Prehistoric "structures" (Like Stonehenge, Maeshowe, etc.)

-your local coffee shop

-the green man

-your location

-little colorful birds

-things that grow

-what goes on in your head

-Hawaiian legends /folklore

-sunsets and silhouettes

-mermaids (original, not Disney, please)

-a card with a cutout

-50/50 card ( half or part pre-existing, like a magazine page, you create the rest! )

-altered playing card (with the number/suit showing- just the top left is fine.)
(Please ask for particular number/suit/theme if you want, or feel free to artist's-choice it!)

-artist's choice
