My Favorite Leaves

Check out these neat abstract leaves! I got it from the Greenbaglady blog site. See the islands on the bottom? Love it!

On vacation

For all those followers of this blog...all 3 of you! LOL... I'm taking a looong vacation off. In September I got laid off from my 6 year job. Oh phooey! So I'm concentrating on my family and reorganizing my life and my house! :) If anyone knows of any job leads in Hawaii....let me know!

Biblical Disaster

Today I'm looking for inspiration in making my next season's designs. I stumbled across this one from and it just cracked me up. This is so funny and cute at the same time. No wonder unicorns are a fantasy animal! I also found that it's pretty much sold out across the board! Good job to the artist (Glenn Jones)!

Digital Harinezumi Sample

Happy Haleiwa

Right now I'm into cute stuff...Hello Kitty, Toki Doki, and Marc Jacob's cartoon name it. Now, there's a new girl in town.
She's the logo for "Happy Haleiwa". No, not the little girl that pushes the shopping cart for the old Haleiwa Supermarket.
She looks like the Japanese version of Wendy's (burgers). I'll post her picture in a few days. However, here is one of their cute totebags (with the old Haleiwa logo). They too have eco bags! Happy Haleiwa's store just opened in place of Ecosystems at the
Ward Warehouse (on Oahu) a couple of months ago. They sell all girl's things from t-shirts to chocolates! The store is too cute! Check out their website by clicking on the title above. It'll direct you to their Japanese website. Yes, they do have stores in Japan too. Sorry, no website yet for the Hawaii one.

Dans Electric

One of the latest Business Cards I fixed up and added color to.

Hope Chapel West Oahu

This is one the logos I collaborated with the HCWO team. They're now using it as their signage for their new location at Waikele!

Toki Doki

Here's one of my favorite artist, Simon Legno from Toki Doki. He was in town for an autograph session at Nordstrom. I waited for 2 hours!!! I was 3rd from the last in line. I actually bought a shirt so he can sign on it.


One of the latest shirts I did. Minami Local Motion has it online!

Hula Hula

Here is an old Hula art I did back in Fall 2008. It's called Hula Hula. What's funny is that I did another art with the same name a few seasons later. I didn't realize it until today! This one did well in the stores.

Hula Halau

Here's a new Hula shirt coming soon called, "Hula Halau". The original is with different sizes of Hula Dancers and the new one revised by my coworker has 3 Hula Dancers. Which do you like?

Finest Hula Dancers

Here's the other design featured in Local Motion's Fall 2009 lineup. It's called "Finest Hula Dancers".

Awana Dance With U

Yeah!!! This shirt has been doing well for Local Motion! It's been selling out (so far) at our Local Motion stores in Waikiki. I guess the tourist like it, so that's why I've been continuously making Hula designs. You'll see more in my blog. It's not online yet, so the only way to get it is at our stores on Oahu, Maui, and Hawaii.

Digital Harinezumi Video Camera

This is my next gift to myself. And it will be for others once I get the pictures and videos. This looks sooo cool! It captures a "dreamy" effect, like the olden days silent films and pictures with dark edges. I can't believe I finally discovered it. Thanks to www.Urban who sends me their daily bursts of emails! I can't wait to get my hands on this. I'm also thinking about a Holga or DianaF plastic cameras...however these can get quite expensive with the film and the developing. Thank you Leila who gave me at the 411 on these cameras! Check out more info on this website: or click on the title above!

The Green Bag Lady

A mother, art teacher, and a revolutionary woman is what my friend, Teresa Van Hatten Granath is. She wants to save the world one bag at a time! I didn't know about her being the "Green Bag Lady" until I read one of her annual Christmas letters and until now, I checked out her website which is (takes you to her blog). She has given out thousands of bags for FREE! In return, you had to promise to use her bags instead of plastic. Each bag is numbered and she loves it when you provide her your picture, name, city, country, and the number of your bag so she can record it on her website. She has been on CNN, made a "How to make a Green Bag" video, and provides you on how you can be GREEN. She's always surprising me with her creations! Please check her out and help save the planet!

Michael Jackson Memorial Tee from Hawaii

There are tons of Michael Jackson Memorial T-shirts out there, but this one from Hawaii is special! Nice simple graphic which shows a nice Michael Jackson stance. You can get your hands on one at or go down to the store....if they haven't sold out! They are selling for $5 which basically covers the cost of the printing and the blank shirt, so no profit is being made. This shirt sold out quickly at MJ's memorial in Hawaii. Only 600 shirts were made! However, they have stickers too! RIP MJ!


My favorite discovery is Judith Hill. The singer who was the lead singer for
"Heal the World" at Michael Jackson's Memorial. She was awesome!
I kept watching the video over and over! Her voice is so soulful and
quite a range! To see more of her, go to
By the way, I love her cool Obey shirt! She has great style.
Love the hair!

If anyone is wondering who Sarah she is. She's one of my close friends. We end up liking the same things from shoes to sunglasses *hee hee*. She'll give me advice on clothes and movie stars. Her name will surely pop up in more than one of my blogs.

First Page

This is a shot of me. It was a day my friend Sarah and I went crazy. We shopped at our local Nordstroms and tried on some glasses. This is my first blog, so of course yours truly is featured on the first page. Hope you enjoy the rest of my blogging!
