First Face painting Job

I have my first face painting job lined up in October.

Last night I layed in bed with my mind going round and round on what I would offer, what designs would be fast, which ones would the kids want...that kind of thing. I find it very hard to go to sleep when my mind is still going full blast.

I woke up this morning and decided to practice a few designs.

My 6 year old loves Frozen. I have a feeling she is not alone. I decided to try my hand at Olaf. I need to buy some brown paint for his arms, but I think the one I did came out cute.

The line-up will be : Olaf, Hello Kitty, a pumpkin, a bat, a dragon and some hearts. I am super excited.  

I will have to add pictures as I practice the designs I am going to do!

Thanks for stopping by!

Ribbon challenge

I think that it is very typical for a woman to think about having a little girl and all the cute things that come along with that. We picture cute bows and lots of pink with frills. There are some women who are lucky enough to have a little girl who loves the frills then there are the little girls that don't.
My daughter HATED anything in her hair. She would pull out any bow I put in. Now that she is 6, she will wear bows for specific situations (think picture day) but they come home in her backpack.
When I found out our second child was going to be a girl, I went out and began to buy ribbon. I started learning how to make bows and even made my fair share of them. Now I have a ribbon stash.
As I keep working towards a compressed craft stash, I decided it was time to work on the ribbon stash as well. I am going to make as many bows as I can and then maybe see about selling them. Depending on how many I can get made, I may just go to a local craft sale to sell them instead of listing them on Etsy.
I find making bows really soothing. I can do it while watching TV. (There are very few shows that I can say I actually "watch." Most shows I just listen too.)

Anyone else have a ribbon stash?
