Pictures!

I have finally been more proactive in getting current photos of my own personal face painting work.  Until the site redesign for parties by Stacey I will have them updated regularly here: Stacey's face painting pictures

The classes I took last summer really paid off I think.  When I look back at stuff I was doing a year ago, it's amazing how much my work has improved.  It's fun experimenting too with new products and brushes and jamming with painters who are leaps and bounds better than I am .  At first it's a little intimidating, but I find that as I paint with them it drives me to push against my internal limits (the little "I can't" voice inside) and really push myself.

The penguin and the hummingbird are a couple examples.  A few months ago I would have told the girls no, I can't paint penguins (hummingbirds).  I had a hard time with birds for some reason, but I tried last week and am pretty happy with how it turned out (and they were thrilled)!

I know I am not the BEST facepainter out there by any means (but when parents tell me I am the best they've seen it feels SO good!) so I am going to keep watching those You Tube videos, going to workshops and jams and buying new products and try to keep growing as an 'artist'. 








Find something you love to do and learn it, love it, DO it!!!

Happy Mother's Day

Thanks to Carly at The Juice Box I have been organizing my digital photos this week. Maybe I'm feeling a bit nostalgic because of Mother's Day but I was especially distracted by all my kids' birthday party photos. Here is a little slideshow in no particular order because I haven't quite got the hang of Picasa's movie maker yet.

Themes we have done over the years are Spiderman, Toy Story, Scooby and friends, Space Science, Tigger, Pony and Cowgirl Music party and gasp(!) Chuck E. Cheese one dark year. Not that there's anything really wrong with Chuck E. Cheese parties. I have to admit it was amazingly simple to book. I wasn't going to do a party for my younger one that year but was feeling Mommy guilt as we were getting ready to fly back from Florida ON his birthday so went online and organized the party real quick!

I hope I make people's party planning a bit easier with our wonderful entertainment options and referrals for things like bouncer rentals and cakes (Heather's are yummy-she's in Agoura Hills) and our services are a lot more personal!

My older one has opted for really simple things the past few years like trips to Legoland and a Wii party. I have no idea what he'll want to do when he outgrows Legoland.

I hope whatever you do this Sunday you have a wonderful time!

MOMS

We rock!!!!
