I am fulfilling a vision that I hope will bless you as it has blessed me.

Bits from Bobbie

My favorite memories of Dad are of times we shared --- laughing, being silly, and playing at the beach together. A treasured black and white photo shows us holding hands at Jones Beach when I was 5.

Actually, both Mom and Dad loved the beach. Mom preferred shelling and finding treasures hidden in the sand. Dad was the one who loved to body surf in the waves, something he taught all his children and grandchildren to do.

Dad was 88 years old when he died. He had spent every day of his life sharing his wonderful sense of humor, his caring for others, and his unending love for his family. I fully realize how truly blessed I am to have had the extraordinary father I did for almost sixty years.

In addition to my flip flop jewelry, cards and prints, I have also written and illustrated two children’s books relating to the heart. One is focused on the importance of sharing love; and the other, on the importance of heart health. Once they are published, I will make them available on my web site. Please check back for other Flip Flop Heart™ products that are presently in the design phase.

In memory of my father, Newt Hamblet, I am donating a portion of my proceeds from the sale of all Flip Flop Heart™ items to the American Heart Association

Brief Bio on Bobbie

Bobbie is a free-lance writer and artist, whose greatest joy is her family. She and her husband of 35 years have three grown daughters and one granddaughter, who keep her heart smiling … as do her three uniquely wonderful sons-in-law.

Bobbie believes no one is ever too old to play; and she is passionate about using her creative gifts to share her Christian faith.

Bobbie lives with her husband, Tom, and her rescued cocker spaniel, Princess, in the northern Virginia countryside. She didn’t change her dog’s name when she adopted her from the pound because it was a chance to become instant royalty. “I rather like the title, Queen Mother,” Bobbie says, giggling.
