If it looks like fun, it is!

Arnold's Bar & Grill hosted Local Local Local on Saturday night and what happened is....
 Jake Speed played!
 Daniel Martin Moore joined in!
If it looks fun, that's because it is! 
 Cold, Cold Heart

please play while you may feel like I did last incredibly happy!
 These are my friends Adam Lawrence, Lisa Witte and the fabulous Sarah St. Cyr.

This is Michael Boyd, head behind the watercolors.
Having never seen his work in person, only in pictures, I brought some extra cash. I knew I would go home with something from him. His lovely pieces are eye catching! You can visit his Etsy shop by clicking the link above.

Look at the loveliest frame! There are two that match! I did not get these, so as of right now, they are still up for grabs. I may change my mind though, so you better go get them if you want them.

Fantastic! little sea creatures!
I did, however, get one of each of these for my new kitchen remodel!

This is Hilary. I met her at a craft show a while back. She may be the nicest person I have ever met. Also, she makes terrariums!
I never even knew I wanted a terrarium until I saw Hilary's!!
I now have one with a tiny Unicorn inside! ah! yes, a tennsy, tinsy Unicorn! You guys know how much I love unicorns, right?! And Hilary loves the Last Unicorn, too!
I know you may be thinking that you want to be besties with Hilary, but I found her first. I bet she will be your friend, too.

It is very difficult to take a picture of a terrarium and convey just how cute they really are! When you see one up close, you will automatically want one. I think they call that the "power of terrariums" though that isn't an official quote.

I love Hilary's display! Don't these just make you feel peaceful....

This is my Unicorn <3 I bet she would make you one, but you can't have mine.

You can check out Hilary's Etsy shop, too...

Robot Inside
The Owls had such a good time! It took a bit for them to get settled down. They kept talking about Daniel Martin Moore. The Owls are crazy for him. Crazy, fun Owls. 

The Monsters, on the other hand, have it bad for Jake Speed. 

and the Little Hearts just had Love for everyone!

Don't forget- you can learn to make Little Hearts with me on February 6th at the Blue Ash Library! 

I did not mean to forget Libre Design- they make great posters. But, alas, I did not take pictures of them. 
I really love their Deerhoof poster...I will find a link and put it here.
 Here's what I love about Arnold's...
everyone is so nice! EVERYONE! The people who make it Arnold's, the workers, the owners, the manager, Chris, is super great! Then, let's talk about the music- fabulous, always! the stage is so cool and there is always some one playing something that makes me feel good! No wonder the staff seems happy! The patrons of Arnold's somehow just seem friendlier than anywhere else in the city! It just seems like everyone we talked to had such a genuine smile and the conversations were awesome! Sarah and I met a gal named Trudy who was new to the city and she was so great! 
I got up this morning feeling really good about last night. 
I am looking forward to future collaborations with Chris and Arnold's. Look for ROBOT Inside to make a grand comeback there...
we are talking Ferris Wheel great here!

  1. Well this made me cry. You had what we call an Arnold's moment. Thanks so much for taking the time out of your life to be a part of ours for just a few hours.
