Fire rainbow...

Fire could I resist?

The proper, scientific name, circumhorizontal arc, just doesn't carry quite the same ring, does it? :p

I haven't lived in a place with fireflies in over 20 years..I miss them. There's nothing else like that magic in the air.

My dd has become Japan-obsessed. She loves all things Japanese...she is teaching herself Japanese, both speaking and reading and writing.. is perfecting her Origami shurikens.. is trying to convince me that Hakuna Matata, in Japanese, is a perfectly acceptable alternative to the original (When hell freezes over!!)..etc etc.

So when she desperately needed a new carry bag, anime inspired print was the obvious choice. :p

She is also cow obsessed, so the lining, while seeming bizarrely unrelated, was actually perfect. And seeing as we are in Hawaii, and she has a whacked sense of humor (no idea where she gets that from), the MooMoo was perfectly acceptable. :p

The whole shebang went over VERY well. :D

Pattern, my own; a magnetic snap closure, lined with very stiff interfacing, and self made piping bordering the edges.

Big surf..

The best part? They were 30 feet. We were standing on a 40-50 foot cliff, and were practically staring them in the face on their way past. If you feel like playing eye-spy, and maybe straining your eyes a little, you can click and enlarge the third pic, and try to spot the surfers on the other side of Waimea Bay.

(The Quiksilver tent was there for the Eddie Aikau memorial big surf comp. You can click through for more professional pics, and a better perspective of just how stomach-dropping those waves were. I recommend it.)

Happy New Year..

Well. Apparently, it's been almost exactly two months since I last posted. How the heck did THAT happen?

Here's hoping 2010 is a bit better!! :D

Good news is, since I wasn't blogging, I was actually MAKING stuff..when I wasn't collapsed facedown on the bed from all the madness in my life nowadays. So I actually have a few posts backed up...they should hold me for at least a LITTLE while, lol.

Happy New Year to everyone!! Make it a good one!!

(The images are of a totally random family I sat down next to on the beach last month..they just seemed appropriate for this moment, for some reason. I think maybe the New Year's firework smoke is getting to me. *cough*)
