COCA 1543

Last Sunday, we had a meet-up for the Athens branch of the CHURCH OF CRAFT here at RANCHO COCOA...we had a lot of fun! We kicked things off by introducing the pets to everybody...Audrey got into Oreo's pen and tried to tempt our bunny out of her tent with some carrots while Nilla sat on her lounger and supervised all the action in our livingroom...

Missy got to work on cutting out little felt slices of FRENCH TOAST, while Clare drew in her sketchbook. Gary showed up sans craft project, so we put him to work...he cut out ONE-INCH BUTTON designs and then pressed them in the badge press. Soon, everyone took turns making their own one-inch badges...

All the while, we ate a bunch of food, listened to music, and watched the HANDMADE NATION documentary. After the younger crafters left, we closed the night out with comic heartthrob Aziz Ansari's "Intimate Moments For A Sensual Evening" dvd in the hopes of inspiring Gary's fledgling career as a stand-up comic...
