My Hero Arts Flickr friends should be familiar with that user name--it belongs to Ivy Wong and I remember smiling the first time I heard it. It made me think that this girl crafts late into the night after her family has gone to bed.

Ivy and her family arrived in Hawaii for a week's vacation and we met for lunch yesterday!
Ivy is such a sweetie and remembered my love of brown. She fashioned a layered felt flower and attached it to a cute ready made brown bag and filled it with a ton of goodies!
Her boys are adorable and little Bryan kept giving me hugs and said he wanted me to be his babysitter. I'm pretty sure he liked my fluffiness....
It was a fun filled two hour lunch and I'm only sorry that the weather isn't cooperating. It's been windy, rainy, and I'm hoping they'll all get a tan as a souvenir before they return to California next week.
Thank you, Ivy, for spending a delightful afternoon with me and now I can chalk up another Flickr friend that I got to meet in person!
Aloha to the Wongs! I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip and have a safe journey home...
