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!

student talks about Incense

Belly Dancers Christmas: After a few months we were getting ready for our first performance *The Christmas Parade* As early 
Christmas gifts our awesome instructor got us a few key parts of our costume; our bells, our tops, and a pretty flower to go on our heads.

While it was slightly scary to start off, our first thing as a group turned out to be a lot of fun! We danced the entire parade (which was a big accomplishment for a couple of us)

Another awesome thing we've gotten to do other then learning to dance, creating our costumes, and really performing has been meeting interesting people. We get to meet so many different people ranging from seamstress to people who's jobs are to know about sex!

I've never had so much fun with a program, we get to express our selves as well as say what we really feel. I mean how many other programs let you talk about the amazingness of food while we write how we think in a journal? Our teacher/mentor/all around cool person to talk to Stephanie is really nice and takes some of our more odd comments in stride. I've had so much fun it kind of bums me out that I won't be able to do this again next year. All in all, this is a wicked experience that I plan on telling everyone about.
