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 love my Sasaki Bag!!!

I LOVE my new bag!!!
I have given them, admired them, but nothing compares to owning one!
I have never in my life gotten so many compliments on an accessory- or anything I have on for that matter. Strangers are constantly stopping to ask where they can get one.
And the real kicker is how personal the bag is- made from one of the real working coffee burlap bags that they use at my family's coffee farm to haul beans to the roaster.
I got the bean fabric interior so it would look like there were coffee beans in my burlap bag- too cute! And you can see the classic Kona Nightingale Donkey with coffee sacks on his back, the gusset says 100% Kona Coffee on both sides and you can se the logo I helped design for the Kona Coffee & Tea Company.
The artwork is one of my own originals, showing the Kona Snow (coffee blossoms) and some coffee beans changing color, with a coffee picker filling her skirt with beans, coffee branches in her hair.
And she even gave me a special Bellydancer strap of Sari edge brocade with metallic accents.
It is the most personal and gorgeous bag ever! And being personal I think it makes the compliments that much more special.
Plus- I can always find my phone and a pen whenever I need it with all the organized pockets inside & that it just closes with a magnetic snap, so even when it is closed I can still reach right for what I know is right there... pretty convenient.
(It also makes a nice pillow for a sleepy head while I am grocery shopping)
(since you want one too!)
and you can see what she is up to at http://www.sasakibags.blogspot.com/
