|And a collection of Local Sugar goodies by mail.|
I'm so very glad you've made your way back to Local Sugar Hawaii. I sure have missed ya. Did you go out hunting for treasure this weekend? No worries if you haven't gotten a chance yet, they are still there and this weekend they will likely be mixed in with an array of brightly colored Easter eggs which are sure to color your world beautiful. If you have gone out I would love to hear about your finds. Here's that little flower clip tutorial I promised, just in time for Easter-- 'cause even in Hawaii, land of endless summers, there is something magical about springtime and blossoms seem to be popping up everywhere, so why not in our hair?
1 Yard of Ribbon
Needle and Thread
1 Large Barrette Clip
Beads or other decorative touches, if desired
Step 2: Cut Petals
... until all petals are strung on the thread.
Step 4: Gather Petals
Holding both ends of the thread, you may want to snip the needle off at this point, for safety, trust me on this one, push petals so that they are gathered together in the center.
Step 5: Tie Thread
Secure the flower by tying thread tightly in double, triple, even quadruple knots.
|Step 6: Rock It|
... like only you can.
Okay, so maybe wearing every flower barrette you've ever, ever-ever-ever, made at the exact same time might be a bit much, even for this local girl. So... I'll take like one, maybe two off before I do the "pick up my eight year old boy from school" routine. But only 'cause I love him and 'cause he likes his school and, well you know it's third grade and all of a sudden being cool and not being the dude with the mom with six plus flowers in her hair is like important, or something. Laugh lots, and...
Tomorrow, Seanzy and I will hit the beach. Wanna come?
