go What a strange old week it’s been! The weirdness began when a face painting buddy – Colette of #Funkyfaces in Huddersfield – told me i was on the cover of a Facebook face paint group. Not exactly Vogue but it is a group well known to Face Painters. I had to have a look!
source Yes, there I am larger than life in the top right hand corner! I think it’s gone now because they change the cover alot.
go What happened next was not connected but things got a lot more surreal.
I am always trying to think of new ideas for my business posts on Facebook. After all, it can get boring looking at the same old stuff on a newsfeed. I had an idea to write a poem. I wasn’t sure if it was a bit twee but with nothing to lose, I gave it a shot. Here is a link to the original post on Facebook.
Well, I was soooooo unprepared for what happened next. It went viral, particularly amongst the Face painting community. My little poem had loads of comments, likes and 61 shares (as I write this).
Neatly 9,000 people saw my poem all over the world. How cool is that? 61 shares was the official share number but I saw it cut n pasted on other people’s pages too. Then a woman called Tammy Rosecrans put this artwork with it too.
I think it must have resonated with fellow face painters. I kept getting people telling me how much they liked it that in the end i made a video to say thank you
I love the fact I was famous for five minutes in Face Painter land!
