Celebrate Your Hawaii Memories Wood Art Panel by Lisa Fulmer

Hawaii Memories Wood Panel by Lisa Fulmer

“Ho’olaule’a” is the Hawaiian word for “celebrate.” It’s the perfect word to embellish this lovely wood panel, which would make a wonderful gift for anyone who has been to Hawaii or is having a luau party. My good friend brought me these floral papers and embellishments from a cute little craft shop she visited in Maui recently.
