Check out our Kickstarter Project: Hula Girls Art Book

It's been so busy around here I have hardly had time for this blog. My oldest son, who's 12, has recently started Band at the local public school where he's learning to play the clarinet. He's been invited to be in the Elite Band to play the keyboard and glockenspiel as well, which means he's away for two hours each morning! To top this off my youngest has started preschool in the afternoons. Luckily I've devised a crazy little schedule which will keep all our ducks in a row, or at least afloat!

The reason I haven't been on this blog is because I've been writing a book for my husband. He asked me to write a book to accompany his awesome hula girls art. He's an island artist who paints and draws anything from religious icons to nature to hula girls. He's mostly fond of anything to do with the islands. We do, in fact, live on an island.

The book is titled "Hula Girls - The Hula Art of DePaula". The book is accompanied by amazing hula girl paintings by the talented artist William De Paula, aka husband and father extraordinaire. The book is a hula dancing pin-up art book with all original artwork by him. In writing this book, I researched the history of hula and its place in Hawaiian and pop culture. It was inspired by our honeymoon visit to Kauai and Maui 15 years ago. The Hawaiian islands' magic and lore continue to enchant us.

Please check out our Kickstarter page and consider funding to help make publishing this book a reality and share with everyone you know (pretty please?). Any donation -of course - would be so much appreciated as well!

Thank you in advance for viewing our book and especially for your support.
