Aloha Friends, it sure has been a while since my last post! Hopefully you all are keeping up with my facebook and instagram, I keep those updated almost everyday (the links to both are right up above).
This month has been a busy one, I was on the mainland for two weeks spending time with family, the day after I returned to Hawaii we had some friends visit…and we have more guests coming for ten days starting on Monday. I have been trying to play catch up this week with emails, updating my website and getting as much work done as I can. This week’s work load has included a logo design, several custom hat orders, a rendering for a real estate agent, meetings and cranking out more 4×4 blocks (to see all these check out my social media links).
I also started officially working with a rep and agency. They are doing amazing things already, including tv interviews, magazine shoots and creating a custom Kailua tote bag for me. Last week we went around to the stores in Kailua to distribute them. I was blown away by the kindness and willingness of the local shops, so many of them said yes! If you would like to pick one up, they are available at Lily Lotus, Kailua Living, Global Village, Kailua Bicycle and Olive Boutique. Please stay tuned for the official magazine pics, this one is just a little sneak peak.
Thanks to my new rep my hats were also featured on the Japan Airlines blog, which I am beyond excited about! Check out the whole article here (google translate will come in handy) https://www.jal.co.jp/tabi/special/resortful/uchino/shopping/#p16 . If all goes well and things keep progressing with them, I will hopefully be taking a trip to Japan in September. Fingers crossed!!
The rest of the weekend will be spend painting, painting and more painting in preparation for the next Night Market, and to continue building a new line of work. I promise to be better about updating my site as things come along. Hope you all have a wonderful Friday and weekend ahead.
