eBay Charm Auction Japan Donations

We just listed some of our charms on eBay with 100% of the purchase going toward Japan.  I'm going to list some more tomorrow.  Here's a link to our listings:

I know it's nothing compared to the $1 million dollars celebrities have been giving (like Ichiro, Sandra Bullock, Demi Lovato, etc...), but every little bit will help.

American Idol features songs from the 80's tonight!  I'm looking forward to that!

Stand and Spin?

Toddler Tales:  Cam is almost 29 months old now.  He is running all over the place getting into everything.  We've been getting him toys that help him burn off his energy, like one of these... (I had one of these when I was a kid, but I thought you were supposed to sit in it...)

Cam just effortlessly climbs up on it.  (with nothing to hold onto to help him up.)  And even scarier is that he will carry this around the house to climb onto higher areas.  (Even though it is bulky and a little heavy.)  I guess you have to admire his resourcefulness...

Luau Food and New Journals

I ate too much at the Luau last Saturday.  Great Hawaiian food from Our Daily Bread and excellent entertainment.  We debuted our new big journal cover designs.  Here is a picture of some of them.  (No sushi design as it sold out on Saturday.)

Yes, I had to stand on a table to get this picture.
We'll have more available at all of our Spring shows (even more sushi covers).

Nisei Week Luau This Saturday

Clayvision will be setting up a booth at the Nisei Week Luau this Saturday in Los Angeles.  You do need a dinner ticket to attend.  We will have tons of sale items for sale with 10% of sales going toward the Nisei Week Foundation.  For a full list of our show listings, visit

American Idol returns tonight as the contestants sing songs from the year that they were born.  (I'm going to start feeling real old as they will be singing songs from after my high school days!)  Also, March Madness begins tomorrow.  Fill out your brackets and call in sick for two full days of basketball.  (32 teams get eliminated on Thursday and Friday alone!)

Let's hope they get those nuclear reactors under control in Japan.  A lot of astonishing video and heroic tales coming out on the internet.  Our prayers are with them!

March Madness? Luau Show? No, Japan...

You'd think that today's post would involve our first show of the season this Saturday.  (Nisei Week Luau)  Maybe some March Madness predictions or excuses to skip work on Thursday and Friday. (So you can stay home and watch all the games.)

Instead, I can't help but think about all the people in Japan.  We have close ties to the country and feel for all those that have family and friends over there.  I can't imagine the damage and all the casulties.  Not to mention what the survivors have to deal with... (no food, no water, no home, freezing temperatures, all the people and places you know, gone!)  It will take quite a while for the country to recover from this... our thoughts and prayers are with them!

Japan 8.9 Earthquake

I am currently watching the tsunamis hit the Northern area of Japan.  Let's hope that people were able to evacuate.   The pictures from this disaster are unbelievable!  Watching the water and debris move across the countryside and flooding everything... taking buildings and cars with it...  It looks like it is moving in slow motion, but they say it is moving really fast if you are on the ground.

Our prayers are with those people in Japan...

A tsunami warning is in effect for Hawaii.  (the wave is scheduled to hit around 3am Hawaii time, hopefully not a big wave.).  No tsunami warning for California... yet...

Refrigerator Cam

Just got the Krafty Delites application.  Their Spring show will be on April 10th in Carson.  Mark your calendars.

Cam update:  He is now a very active 28 months old and likes to climb everything.  (and tightrope his way across the back of the sofa.)  The refrigerator used to be safe, but now he is strong enough to open it on his own.  ("You can't drink your milk out of the carton... come back here with that!")

American Idol-ing

Are you watching American Idol?  We're down to the final 13.  The next few weeks will be spent getting rid of those contestants that don't have a shot at winning.  (Unless they pull off a performance like Pia did this past week.)  The early favorites are probably Casey (the bass player), Jacob (crazy voice), and James (the rocker).  I'm not sure what girl will make it deep into the competition, maybe Pia (if she can find some more performances like the last one) or Thia Megia (She is really young, but has the best sounding name)

In honor of American Idol, we will have our music note zipper pulls on sale for $2.00 each!  (half price!)
