Maui Swap Meet & Meet Marilyn

Hapa Girl and I visited our friend Marilyn at the Maui Swap Meet yesterday.  Marilyn, also known as @jamarilyn at Twitter, designs fabulous shirts and bags. I thought I should feature her on this blog for you to get to know her.  Aside from designing shirts and bags, she is also an author and a nurse. She is very talented, and a warn hearted person. More information about her talents and products are found on her website, Amaryrillis of Hawaii.

Since today is the Weekly Winner day, I picked out some photos from yesterday as my entries.  Here are some of Marilyn’s beautiful design:

Quote from Island Candle  

“It was written in 15 minutes as three friends ate Chinese food in the living room of a Diamond Head home.” So reported the Honolulu Star Bulletin back in December of 1995. The song was copyrighted in 1959 by Eaton “Bob” Magoon Jr.’s Hawaiian Recording and Publishing Co. Listed as its authors were composer/real estate developer Magoon, actor/singer Ed Kenney and Gordon Phelps, then Magoon’s assistant. Hawaiian Recording and Publishing Co. is no longer in business. “

Internet Marketing Association of Hawaii

The Internet Marketing Association of Hawaii (IMA of Hawaii) is an association for individuals and organizations involved in the practice, teaching and study of Internet marketing. It was founded by Bob Sommers, an internet marketing expert who resides on Maui, Hawaii.

The association grew rapidly within the year it was formed. Membership is free, and signing up is easy – you can even do it online. IMA of Hawaii is a 100% volunteer organization run by Internet Marketing experts (like Bob) who use these skills every day in their own business. They are experts at their craft, committed to helping you market on the Internet.

I have to be honest that when I first got an e-mail from this group introducing their association and inviting me to join, I was very skeptical.  However, I gave it a chance and went to their website to check it out. I read many of the information posted. The more I read, the more I was convinced that the IMA of Hawaii is a valid and helpful organization, and so I joined.

To further check them out, I attended one of their “free” workshops held at the County of Maui Business Center. I sacrificed a lunch break from work to be able to listen to what Bob has to say. In the end it was worth it. The workshop was very helpful. And it is truly free. So I thought I should let the A Maui Blog readers know about this organization, and if you are interested, please join. Below is their website link and contact info:
