Give And Take

Give And Take

Something Borrowed intrigued me once again. Style Swap was its latest venture.  Everyone who participated, including myself, dropped off a bag of at least 5 clothing/accessory items that were clean and in good condition prior to the event. 

The Style Swap took place at Huddle, 235 N. San Joaquin Street, on Saturday from 6 pm – 9 pm with attendees (about 50) paying $10 at the door to get a bag to fill with fashion.  There was free wine tasting and low priced snacks, free consultations from Lux salon (on the Miracle Mile) about new hairstyles and common hair care needs, even giving some guests bangs. Members of the Delta College fashion club were available to make alterations and though there were no takers they were able to spread the word about the fashion program.

Art Break Day

Art Break Day

Last year I discovered Art Break Day, a day where people gather throughout the world to make art for free. The Art Break Day message “art is an essential part of a healthy community and everyone deserves access to it” resonated with me so I contacted the founders of the non-profit Art Is Moving, that conceived Art Break Day in 2011, to register Victory Park as an Art Break Day site.

A wide variety of people came to the first Art Break Day in Stockton, about 100 in all - couples, singles, parents with children, seniors, developmentally disabled, friends, skilled artists and those just wanting to have fun.  What touched me was how grateful everyone was for the opportunity to gather and make art.
