1000 Cups of Cranes - Week 30

Week 30

Hello I have been busy/slack for a couple weeks again. I have decided to put what the backgrounds I have used in the description of the photos along with either the name of the person who decorated the paper or the up-cycled item I used to fold the cranes so that the information is all together and you can all find your contributions much easier. 

This week some of the adventures that I got up to were:
On Tuesday I was invited to by one of my Karate students along with her mum and fellow instructor Eliza to introduce her classmates to Karate. So on the way I had breakfast at a lovely little cafe "Suzette's Caffe" in Burnside. I met Suzette herself, an what a wonderful lady, great coffee and food.
Wednesday I traveled up to Really Useful pots Studio/farm to work on 1000 cups of cranes coffee cups and to plan the handbuilding and wheel throwing classes Susanna and I will be running in the school holidays and next term.
Friday afternoon I met my sister at IKEA to find some frames for a crane artwork I am working on for her, then we had dinner at mum's place.
Saturday we had a Relay for life GKR vs Cancer Team meeting to plan and update each other on our fundraising efforts. We will be having two events

GKR vs Cancer Auction Night  -  Sept the 13th at The Griffins Head 
and
GKR vs Cancer Quiz Night - Oct the 4th
more details to follow
The Relay for life that we are participating in is on the 11th and 12th of Oct 

Sunday would have been tournament day, but unfortunately I came down with a bug! Hence no coffee that day.

Until next week may all your cups be delicious and all your cranes fly free. Make sure you register your email if you found a little bit of luck (a crane) or would like to attend the exhibition in March 2015. Register here.

If you have found one of these cranes please keep it until March 2015 when you will be asked to bring it to the exhibition opening night, register your email address HERE so I can send you an invite to the opening night of the exhibition. So your crane can be placed into an artwork at the exhibition.

Thanks, Naomi - the Wonkie One
