Go Ahead and Hula the Afternoon Away…


Aloha all you Luau Lovelies! I just wanted to share a little sneak peek at a fun side project I’ve been working on. My oh-so sweet cousin is turning 9 and asked for me to make her birthday party invitations.  Let me tell you, this little lady is a SUPER visionary of a party planner, and started planning the details of her party back in December (her birthday is in August!). Then, when I was out in New York in May for Surtex, she asked if I would make her invitations…complete with a “hula girl whose hips really dance.” Luckily for me, her mother found the perfect springs to get the hula girl movin’ and groovin’ on the invitations. We used “Action Wobble Springs“, and man, do they have some moves!

As I was working on her invitations, I ran across this absolutely PRECIOUS, completely melts your heart, video of the birthday girl hula dancing at the age of just 3 and a half.  (Please excuse the image quality as it was filmed on my mom’s “vintage” Motorola Razor almost 6 years ago.)

So, I hope you’re all inspired to put all your inhibitions aside (maybe with the help of a cocktail in a coconut shell), flaunt your goddess grass skirt, and hula the day away!
Happy Weekending, where ever you might be! Aloha!
