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!

Unveiling....


AMEL TAFSOUT
There is writing on the wall in French, German, & Arabic.  An Algerian design going down the left hand column.  I actually had my sons go along the beach collecting cowrie shells for me to make the necklace actual shells but they were all too large and would have made her look like Wilm Flintstone so I just painted them very raised to look more dimensional.
Real shisha mirrors along the true sari fabric edge.

The first thing that comes to mind is offering food and drink when someone arrives at your home for a visit. A comfortable place to sleep and a fresh, clean place to wash up, with necessities carefully placed for the guests convenience--but all this is just action, ringing hollow if it isn't done with thoughtfulness. So, to me, hospitality is an outward showing of your inner thoughtfulness, consideration, and ultimate respect for the guest--whether your offering is an expensive tea or a glass of water.
