We have received, essentially, a Matching Grant -- a lovely large check from a Grande Dame appreciator of the crafty arts! We are beyond thrilled.

(It's especially welcome given that the Playa del Fuego arrangement is of the "send us your receipts and we'll reimburse you after the festival" variety.)

Thanks, Mom!!!

Roffco Glowstick Chapel & The Cabinet of Extinct Curiosities ALL SYSTEMS GO!

e.f.a.c. has just been awarded a Large Government Grant... no, wait, we mean... a Playa del Fuego Art Grant, for the Fall Burn (Oct. 4 - 8, 02012) in beautiful pH-balanced Delaware.


-- spent glow-necklaces / used cyalume glowstix

-- plastic six-pack rings

Other bits we're also hoping to reclaim from the waste stream as opposed to buying new:

- rugs and meditation cushions (we can slipcover shabby pillows)

- fabric of all kinds, but especially black and/or velvet

- jars with lids; wide-mouthed glass bottles for Extinct Curiosities

- unloved spice racks

- maybe a spare tarp or two

Random bits of carnival-barker attire or related accoutrements would not go unappreciated, either.
