Last Saturday I painted at the Fun House in Halifax. It’s near the station and Baby Ballet. It the first time I had been there and it seems like a great choice for those of you with younger kids because there are lots of little play kitchens and those kind of things little ones enjoy.
The party was for a little girl. They were a friendly crowd and everyone got involved. Most the boys and a couple of girls went for skulls whilst the Unicorn was popular with girls.I enjoyed painting afew adults too. Got to do some flower faces as well as a nice mermaidy design on birthday girl’s mum.
I was flying out to Iceland on a little break the following day and it was a lovely job to end on before I went away.
This week, I thought I’d have a go at winter design. Full of pinecones, snowflakes and icicles. I then had fun with a photo app, changing my naturally green eye colour to blue!
I was so happy with how it looked but then something amazing happened. It actually started to snow!
The first snowfall of the season. It felt like I’d prayed to the weather gods or something.
Happy Winter guys!
This weekend gone was a busy one for me. It started and ended with a birthday party, with a festival in the middle.
Both parties were extremely busy, I did not come up for air! The second of the parties was a repeat customer for me. That is always a special thing. I never take custom for granted. There are so many face painters around so it is so lovely to be reselected.
The festival was the Hebden Bridge Folk Roots Festival. As part of the event, they were allocated funding for Children’s activities. It was a real pleasure to be involved. The bright rainbow Tigers and Leopards were very popular, as you can see.
It was the first time I had displayed my new board too. I think it looked really professional. How about you?
Well, it’s time I got practicing for the next Festival – Heptonstall this weekend. By the way, if you have ever wondered why sometimes Face Painters charge the amounts they do -or not at all – at festivals, read my post in Facebook about it here. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=451168011898831&id=268785783470389
See you there!
