the tropics are calling to me...

Aloha everyone!
I know its been a really long time since I've had a chance to post at all, let alone post anything of substance. Making jewelry and artwork for the holidays has totally sucked up all of my time, and just as that has started to taper off, I've got something else to make me super busy...
The Stellanovae have decided to spend the next 6 months living on the big island of Hawaii! We are leaving on January 7th!


So there's lots of logistics to deal with, and packing to do, etc. We've rented a house over there, and though we won't have much furniture, we'll have a LANAI! And tropical plants and trees! And a 10 mile bike ride to some EPIC snorkeling!

What are we doing over there? Well, I'll be doing pretty much exactly the same thing I do here, except in a chaise lounge sitting under a palm tree sipping a drink in a coconut with an umbrella in it. Er, I mean, I'll be making lots of jewelry and illustration and art and stuff, some of which will be Hawaiian-themed. Todd will be doing some contract work and working on some other science-y and art-y projects, and we'll both be training for a couple of Hawaiian triathlons that are going on while we're there (NOT Kona Ironman, mind you!)

So I'm going to miss everyone A LOT, especially since I've hardly had time to hang out with anybody lately! But now you know someone living in Hawaii! Come visit!

In the meantime, we are having a Bon Voyage get-together at our place on the evening of January 4th, so please save the date! More details to follow!

Mahalo nui loa, and Aloha! Oh, and Hau'oli Makahiki Hou (Happy New Year) to you all! I hope to see as many of you as possible before we take off!
