Euclid Beach Blast!

August 1, 2012

Do you ever look at yourself in the mirror and think, “Man, this girl should be at a beach party right now!”? Well, I do that almost every day. Since it’s incredibly tiring to organize a beach party every day, I instead go on my Kindle and read inane books like La Seduction and How to be a Woman. Sometimes I play Scramble with friends.

BEACH PARTY. Ok. You guys should all come to Euclid Beach Blast this Saturday, August 4. According to their Facebook Page, “Celebrate Euclid Beach Park with an evening of art, live music, games, food trucks, summer sunsets and an after party at the 3rd Annual Euclid Beach Blast! Free and fun for the entire family! Saturday August 4th 5pm-830pm” AND THAT SOUNDS AMAZING, DOESN’T IT??

On Monday, Ali & I joined some other people (including Steve, who organized this event!) at Nicole’s Plenty Underfoot (which is an amazing organization about reusing materials for art WHICH I TOTALLY SUPPORT) and started getting stuff ready for the beach trash mobiles that you will be able to make if you attend! YAY BEACHES.

Here is a picture of me cutely chopping up some beach noodles that are reused from CMA’s Summer Solstice party which I was very rudely not invited to and/or forgot to buy tickets.

And my mobile that I made as a demo. Everyone is going to want this mobile. But it’s mine! JK I have no idea where I put it. Ali put her mobile on her head for some reason. IDK why. But it looks like a very effective hat.

  1. Those tampon applicators on my mobile make me look so demure! I’m struggling to recall what that egg-shaped trash-turned-treasure is in the bottom left hand corner of your material pic?

    Many thanks to Nicole for the use of her awesome studio and to Steve and Ivy for their incredible dedication to this event!

    Officially, the Kickstarter campaign reached AND surpassed its goal this week, allowing for the event to be free. Food Trucks, live bands – including Son Gitano! – will play all evening with a continuation at the Beachland Ballroom for the after party. Plus, the view of Lake Erie are stunning from the bluff in the park!

    If you’re in town, it would be silly to pass this event by!

  2. I wish I could go!!! 😦 Next time for sure! xoxo

  3. […] A crew of us made samples at Nicole’s studio last week and tirelessly scrubbed recyclable trash for beach goers to string onto mobiles of their own. You can read about our craft night on the Detroit Shoreway, here!  My mobile is pictured above and is resplendent with bottle caps, plastic toy pieces and a tampon applicator – all found by clean-up crews on the shores of Lake Erie! GROSS! GROSS! GROSS! […]
