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!

Sacred Cake

I won something!
I read Kelly Rae Roberts, blog
and she is always having these fun little give-a-ways. Well lately if you read her blog within two hours of one of her give a-ways- there will be over 200 comments already in the running for her prizes. It was actually very amazing to watch as her blog went from under 100 to I am sure well over 800 followers upon the publishing of her book Taking Flight.
Well, even though I never really feel like I have a chance at all, I like to participate. (the games are fun & I think it lets her know she's loved)
So I actually won a pair of earrings (those pictured aren't them those are some from the Etsy shop of the creator of my earrings... who is Kelly Rae's Sister, the mistress of Sacred Cake).

And the winning phrase in response to "three words about the best thing that's happened to you today..."

Light Filtering Through

(hey- it was still early in the morning... not much else had happened yet. I just looked through the window of my studio and saw streams of light jetting through the leaves of the upper maple orchard).

I'm so excited! It has been a long time since I won something.

...when I was little, it seemed to happen all the time. I felt like all I had to do was want something to win it. But growing up threw a wrench in all of that.
