E Komo Mai! Welcome to my blog.

I'm delighted that you dropped in! E Komo Mai: WELCOME! This blog is basically an online visual journal is modeled after a concept I learned of in psychology 101... waaaaaaay back in college. That concept was somewhere in the chapter on The Significance of Dreams, where it mentioned someone's theory on dreaming about a house usually means that the house represents you. So I have used my actual house (Mauna Lea Manor) to structure my blog. In different rooms you will find different aspects of my life; different interests I like to blog about. This is a way to bring a little organization into my life and thoughts for myself... (dreams are in The Bedroom, Family updates are in The Living room, etc.)
This also, I would imagine, make reading this blog more convenient for you as well. If you are a grandparent interested in seeing photos and hearing stories about my boys, but maybe not so interested in my bellydancing obsession: you can just read what goes on in The Playground. But if you are an Art Collector more interested in my latest work and information on collecting, but not especially interested in my personal life: you'd enjoy The Office. Mauna Lea Manor is sort of the foyer to all the other rooms. If you would like to tour my online portfolio, please visit: www.stephaniebolton.com.
I hope you enjoy your time here ;) & continue to stop by!

I'm on cloud nine!
That magazine I LOVE has decided to use the artwork I submitted for their July issue!
They have also asked for some step-by-step photos and a how-to article.
I really think their magazines are amazing and I love all of the artwork they feature, to be a part of it is a huge honor.
I have also been contacted recently by a Qigong monk to create a poster for their Cancer retreats. He saw the Avocado Festival poster and got my name off the poster.
He has a farm in Hawi where he and his wife hold retreats for people whose lives have been touched by cancer. So I have that project I ought to be working on right now but I was just so excited about the affirmation of being accepted by the magazine- I wanted to share my elation!
