aloha blog party!
Aloha E komo Mai! Welcome to my little part of this island blog party! I am so excited, i just got on-line, i really do live in a very rural area of maui, 2.5 hours from town! One of the negatives is difficulty with internet/cable, but i am here now! My name is Angi, I am married to a really special person named Hank, we have 4 adult kids and 4 little grndkids, that is vinnie(waioloi) in the photo fishing right across the street from my house, i wanted to show you where i live, hana, maui. I was a registerd nurse for 30 yrs on maui and have always done crafts/ metalmithing for the last 10 yrs or so for mental health! i took early retirement to help with the grdkids and try to do jewelry making and crafting as a small family buisiness, i went in to a major artist block a couple years ago and that is when i became addicted to following jewelry/craft blogs as a way to get inspired and after much persistence and reading many blogs and the artists stories my light came back! So i decided i wanted to start a blog, part as payback, maybe i could inspire someone. i learned there are alot of self taught artists like myself and i have learned alot of great techniques/skills following blogs, and i also found myself wanting to be a part of the special bloggers friendship/support i noticed over and over amongst the different blogs i went to, so here i am! A big mahalo to vicki for hosting this party over @ "2 bags full", i have learned getting your blog up and running is a little harder than i realized so this is huge for me! I can't wait to meet all you new blog friends today and over the next however long it takes, oh yeah i almost forgot i am doing a give away! all you have to do is leave a post and on feb 1st i will do a drawing for a special piece of jewelry, i could not decide which piece of jewelry to use, if you prefer bangle or necklace let me know in your comments and maybe i will decide that way! It will be real nice, i promise! Aloha, angi in hana
