Because, really, who can resist the charms of Leo...

I don't want the other men in my life to get jealous or disappointed, but it may be time for me to come clean. I'm in love with Leo Decker!

Can you blame me? He's just so darn handsome, and good with kids, and loyal, and well what else could I ask for? I mean sure it would be nice if he could provide for me but let's get real. I live in Hawaii where most men are more into surf than work! Mom I swear I'm not settling, I swear!

The best part about Leo is that there's enough of him to go around. Plus I'm not the jealous type, I realize that such awesomeness must be shared! And now others are in love with him too, for example, the lovely Butler family from Michigan discovered him this past weekend at Artfest Waikiki.

Thankfully, Leo didn't completely steal the show. Phew! He left them alone for at least a short moment so that they could discover the glass artwork that I make. These kids are too cute for words! And they had a blast with the glass moustache!

Meet Olivia:


and Joel:

Cutest kids in the world! An extra special thanks goes out to their mom, Stephanie Butler, for sending along these photos. Enjoy the rest of your vacation and we'll hope to see you back in Hawaii soon!

And any chance I get I give a shout out to the Deckers...Katie and Meghan thanks for bringing Leo out for a visit. Much love always!!

Deep thoughts with Sara E. Calhoun Perry

Sara Calhoun Perry you left me in stitches when you posted up these photos! How funny are you with your facial expressions :-{D

Inspector (-ess) Clue-so?

Sara is a very talented artist herself, who exhibits her handcrafted magical boxes at Artfest Waikiki one weekend per month. Our mutual love for the magical and whimsical is quite a strong bond, and I daresay she is quite a muse! I just got done working in my studio where I made my first ever UNICORN HORN! Sara offered me the great idea of a horn on a long chain that can be held up to the forehead, much like how the glass mustache is held up to that lovely space between the nose and the mouth. Spaces on the face that are just begging for embellishment. Sara, thank you for helping me fill that space. You rock!

Kailua's Next Top Model!!!

A special thank you to Marissa Mackay who lives in Kailua, originally from upstate New York! This girl has got it going on...

I am 100% in love with the straw fedora / glass moustache / haute look combination, so much in fact that the ball is now rolling for my first ever fashion photo shoot! Marissa mentioned that she modeled and might be interested in trading some shots for glass jewelry and suddenly the wheels start turning in my head...I sure do know some talented folks!
Thanks Marissa, for being such an inspiration. I will be in touch about this photo shoot soon.
And may I just say that the Lanikai Craft Faire was a wonderful success...and the cheeseburger from Kailua Pub afterwards was the best reward!
