Happenings at A Place in Time on November 1, 2015

Aloha Everyone,

Trick or Treat??! and the clock keeps on ticking. Soon it will be Thanksgiving and then Christmas (the best time of the year) and then we start the cycle all over again with a new year.

Normally, Fran's classes are on the last Saturday of each month, but with Halloween the class gets pushed to the first Saturday in November (7th) 1:30 - 4:30 pm. The theme of the class is Christmas Gift Cards and Tags. You will be making 2 gift cards and 5 gift tags. Below, you will see a sneak preview of the gift tags.

Please bring the following supplies to class: Tape adhesive and glue of your choice, dimensional tape, corner rounder, paper trimmer, scissors, bone folder, scor pal or equivalent, crop-a-dile, TH Distressed Ink - Walnut, ( or equivalent) and applicator (or foam sponge).

Too cute - the embossed white paper is fantastic

Which is better - the tag or the package?

Looks good enough to wish you had the real cookies

If you are interested in the class please contact me or Fran to sign up. The cost is $23.00. This will be the last class of the year. Fran will be taking the holiday season off, as usual, to enjoy family time and "gear up" for next year.

The Laser Den has been extremely busy. We've become the go-to place to have your hydro flasks engraved. There are the individual flasks, but there are the orders for 300, 58, 176, and 375 also. Sandwiched in between those orders are electrical labels for solar companies, wood plates, Koa boxes, stencils, and custom signs.

One thing I've discovered is Instagram. If you have the time you can visit photos of my work at hawaiiengraving. Since the website is on hold I found instagram as another vehicle to get the word out. I have a total of 30 followers (modest by any count) but with time I think it will grow.

The following are a few samples of what we've recently done:

To get the sharpest engraving we often times re-draw the image in the language of the laser.

Naliko's Hydro Flask - Go Ducks

This is the drawing of the elephant before engraving on a Hydro Flask

Using our new logo I engraved the image and it now adorns my I-pad cover. I cut
 out the sun/moon and inlaid a piece of red acrylic

Recently, I changed the company logo to the engraved Koolau's. What you see above is the new business card.

Very beautiful antique Koa frame engraved with the family Mon.

Just a few flasks contained in the 15 cases that were dropped off at the Laser den.

That's all for now. I wish you the best of the coming days. Enjoy your friends and family - they are the true treasures we have in our lives.
