Aloha ALL!! I have been gone from here longer than I expected, but am SO GLAD to be back! All my card supplies that I shipped from Hawaii to my Dad's house made if safely, thank goodness. It has been quite an adjustment to say the least, but I am doing pretty good and anxious to be in touch with all my wonderful blogging friends again! Thanx so much for all your support!

I want to start out with a the card I did for my daughter and new son-in-law for their wedding this past June.  The wedding was lovely and they are so happy! I kept the card simple and a bit elegant. The paper was such a pretty, soft cream color with gold.  I'm really glad that they liked it!

The wedding was held in Eugene, OR and they were blessed with perfect weather - sunshine and no rain!  Early that morning I got up and went out into the forest and picked ferns and wildflowers to weave my daughter's haku (head wreath).  It turned out beautiful.  Here is a picture of the happy couple!


  1. Jo it is so good to see you back, when I read the message you left I just had to rush over and say welcome back, we have really missed you and can't wait to see all your new creations. Sounds like your daughter had a beautiful wedding and that a great day was had by all. The wedding card you made is gorgeous, definatley one to be treasured. Hope you are well and I look forward to catching up regularly.
