Lolo Henry

Lolo means grandfather in tagalog. I've was talking to Aidan about my dad last night and referred to him, as Lolo Henry to Aidan. I mentioned to him that it's his birthday coming up Aug 7 and that Lolo Henry is my dad and instantaneously he said "you mean Yeye!".

I thought that was a cool that he was able to connect the concept even though he hasn't met my dad.

My dad always liked Bonsai, but between him and I, we've never been able to grow or keep one for more than a year. Once in awhile, I've attempted to grow or maintain a bonsai because it reminds me of him, but it always seem to dry up and die on me. One day....I'll get it right. In the meantime, I do have some wonderful houseplants and orchids that are thriving...okay with the exception of two orchids that went on the yellow side (due to change of temperature in the house, AC kicking in etc - you get the picture).

You will be forever in my thoughts and heart.

OWOH 2011 - Final one!


Welcome to my blog entry for the OWOH - One World One Heart Event where bloggers get to meet new friends, renew friendship and get inspired.  I live in Ontario, Canada.  I'm a mixed media artist and love to create with different media.  I love making cards, creating beaded jewelry; journaling and taking photographs. I'm a night owl and do most of my work at night when my little guy is asleep.   I also teach at a local rubberstamp and scrapbook store.  My hubby is very patient with my abundance of art supplies, packed in the basement.   My little guy is also very creative and I try to post his creation on my blog.  I have a black cat - Minx who adopted us six years ago.

To all my last years blogger friends and new friends, thanks for joining One World One Heart.  Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy this magical experience.

Journal Junkies - MOLA Inspired

For art Aidan had to create a MOLA design.   His art inspired me to make one on my Journal.

"Mola or Molas, is a hand-made textile that forms part of the traditional women's clothing of the Kuna people.   The full costume includes a patterned wrapped (saburet) a red and yellow.  Themola, ormolas, is a hand-made textile that forms part of the traditional women's clothing of theKuna people."[1]

In Dulegaya, the Guna's native language, "mola" means "shirt" or "clothing". The mola originated with the tradition of Guna women painting their bodies with geometric designs, using available natural colors; in later years these same designs were woven in cotton, and later still, sewn using cloth bought from the European settlers of Panamá.[2].

The source for traditional design inspiration for Molas include the following: natural-world native animals (iguanas, lizards, parrots, fish), local vegetation (palm trees, coconut crops, sea grasses), and t…
