Like the song says, "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head..."
Last night, all over the State of Hawaii, and in particular on the Windward side, the rain fell and fell and fell. I must say though, it resulted in many beautiful waterfall in the Koolau mountains!
Every morning driving into work, I am in awe of the beauty of the Koolau Mountain range. There is nothing like the beauty of the waterfall following a heavy rain, or a rainbow that preceeds these raindrops before they fall.
We are truly blessed.
It's a New Year!
Can you believe how quickly the year has flown by?
While Island Crafters hasn't been blogging on a regular basis, I've still had my hands in the crafting end of things! I'll be checking in more frequently! It's been a busy year for me with new grandbabies and just keeping up with life in general!
I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season and that your 2013 brings you much happiness and joy.
You'll certainly be hearing more from me in 2013!
Our co-worker walked around the office handing out cute packets of crocheted scrubbies & wipes to everyone because she had so many that she wanted to share them.
I asked her how she had come across all of these scrubbies and she said that her 90 year old grandmother (Grandma Elaine Masutomi), crochets them to keep herself busy and her mind active. My co-worker said that grandma doesn't want to sell them, but would rather share them with others.
Just wanted to say, Thank you and bless you Grandma Masutomi!
That it's a mere
118 days until Christmas???
But who's counting?
Went to the Henderson Art Festival in Las Vegas this past weekend. They closed down the street in downtown Henderson. It was a HOT 92 degrees outside...but a very nice day.
The vendors were pretty much like our crafter's here selling their wares. Paul and I had a good time...we had handcrafted root beer which was cool and refreshing! We bought a gecko to hang on our wall (any of you that know me know how I cannot stand gecko's -- so go figure)!
They had a section of the festival that was geared toward the keiki. There was a booth that made recycled art, face painting, there were a number of students that had selected a piece of art that they had to duplicate in chalk on the sidewalk. Quite a number of them were so talented, including this young artist that we were quite impressed with. Wish we would have withstood the heat to watch him complete his piece because I'm sure it was stunning!
Just walking around for the hour and a half, in the bright sunshine gave me a sunburn...those poor vendors had to withstand 6 hours of the festival PLUS set-up and take-down time. But they all had smiles on their faces...despite the heat! We can certainly relate to that huh?
They made some great wire sculptures!
All in all, it was a lot of hot sun and a lot of cool crafts...get it? Cool crafts..haha!
