Aloha from snowy Lancaster OH!

On this chilly evening, I would like to declare my intent to become a Fellow Moai!

I have been hanging with the Columbus chapter for a couple years at the Grass Skirt, Hula Hop, and other fun shindigs, and I know I've found "my people."

I've always been interested in MCM lifestyle, Tiki, scooters and rockabilly music. That is a natural fit. I also find joy in giving back to my community, and there is no one I'd rather join up with in that respect than fellow Moai.

I am a professional glass artist, working in blown glass as well as flameworking (glass beadmaking). The theme in my work leans towards retro and silliness. You'll see Shag-inspired monkeys sporting fezes, little glass scooters, rockets, robots, and lava lamps in miniature bead form. A few months ago, I made a life-sized lawn flamingo out of blown glass that I designed into a purse! My motto is, if it doesn't make me smile. I ain't makin' it. :D

This is my slow time of year in my business, so it's the perfect time to enjoy the process towards Moai-ness! (that's a lot of sss's, isn't it?)

Aloha, RocketBetty! Yes, I concur, leopard IS neutral!

My site is down for a bit while I freshen it's look. I am not quite sure how to post pics in here. Can anyone give me directions?

As you move on the path, I believe you will have the ability to post photos here.

Until then. You can use the IMG bbs code to link to an image posted elsewhere. So, if you have a gallery already hosted on your website, just use the IMG or resizeIMG buttons and insert the url between the bbcode bookends.

Alooooooha! My wife and I both ride scooters (her: Vespa LX150 ; me: custom built Honda Ruckus). Also, we're getting our new Boston Terrier puppy in a few weeks which we have named Vespa as well.

Glad to see you around! Make yourself comfortable at the bar....

Aloha, Rev_Dan! I also have two scooters: Tn'G Venice 50cc is my first lil' girl. I bought her when I lived in New Orleans and discovered there is no free parking ANYWHERE, and received my first parking ticket the very first day of work. Literally that evening, I was on the hunt for a scooter because you were able to park them on sidewalks. Perfection! Hooked up with a group of scoot enthusiasts and did Sunday rides with them. Great way to see the city!

When I moved to Ohio, traffic flowed a bit faster, and so I bought a Genuine Buddy 170cc. So fun and zippy!

Thanks for the invite to get comfy at the bar. I'll be sure to take a Sc-Uber home! :thumbsup:

Great to have you declaring!!!!

Goats are great and can be subdued by glass blowing...they get mesmerized by all that turning and blowing. ") They like things that sparkle too so keep that in mind...it could be a well... a real life saver maybe :)
