Enchanted Forest

Imagine that you're on a nature walk on a brisk fall afternoon; you are deep inside the cool clasp of the lush forest.
 
 
As you walk slowly, the sun peeks through the branches overhead. Twigs snap as inquisitive chipmunks chase each other; high above, the birds chatter. You stop. As you stand quietly on the moss and fern lined path you hear the soft murmurs of voices. You listen then decide to move farther into a small clearing in the trees. What do you see?!
 
 
It’s a gathering of mythical forest children… a gnome, a nymph, elves, and you even see the glistening wings of a fairy. You quietly hide behind a large oak tree and watch. They are having a celebration. Each is sitting on moss cover wooden chairs at a table set for royalty. The table is adorned with ornate colored glass stemware and rustic wooden flatware.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I had the opportunity to take part in creating just this scene, face painting fairies for our Enchanted Forest Party, and working with other ridiculously talented party vendors and planners.

'Tis the Season

Eric and I had such a great time at holiday parties this year!

We had a repeat performance at a corporate holiday party - our third year! - with face painting and temporary tattoos.





And then I had the best time ever on Christmas Eve, where I was hired to face paint at a family party ... dressed in elf!

The family was terrific, and I had such a blast. 


I got to play the character the whole time, which was hysterical when one of the kids asked how I'd gotten there, and I told him the truth - Santa had let me borrow one of his spare sleighs.  The boy wanted to see it, so I explained to him that Santa's magic disguised the sleighs, so that when human eyes looked at them, they looked like regular cars, and showed him my Ford Escape out the window, which he understood was obviously proof of Santa's magic!







On top of that, I was so good this year that Santa let me hand out his gifts to the kiddos in his stead.  I honestly teared up at the honor.  It made my night.

For New Years, I was at a country club with friends, face painting at a blacklight glow party, and got my first ever request for a ram!




Nothing says New Year's Eve, though, like a glowing zombie!


Absolutely nothing.
