Craft Room Ideas

Posted on

So, I am moving and getting my own craft room soon.  *cheers* I stumbled upon this crafty storage blog the other day and am now more confused as to how I am going to organize my craft room! To make matters worse, I just came back from my California/Vegas trip and am totally hating Hawaii for not having an IKEA! I’d do my whole craft room with IKEA furniture if it wasn’t so expensive to ship here!

Anyways, the day I came back from my trip, I was browsing craigslist and found someone here that was selling those IKEA expedit bookshelf cases.  I was so stoked because that was one of the main items that I wanted to get from IKEA! I was able to purchase the 4×4 as well as the 4×2.  My wonderful BFF put it together for me and now I am beginning to think I should get the other 4 the guy was selling, just because!  Nevermind that I have no idea (or the space) of where it’s going! It was meant to be…

Stay tuned for before and after pictures of my new craft room.

P.S. Let me know if you are getting a container to ship to Hawaii so I can get in on the action! LOL.

Best Shave Ice…EVER.

Posted on

If you live in Hawaii or are ever visiting and haven’t tried Ice Garden yet, you are missing out!! Owned by two Taiwanese (?) ladies, this is definitely the best shaved ice around.  Forget Matsumoto’s and go to Aiea Shopping Center, 2nd level and don’t forget to get the mochi balls.  I promise you won’t be disappointed! I will leave you with a picture of my favorite: #22 with milk (Blue Vanilla with ice cream and mochi balls).  Pure Heaven!
