Painting in a Care Home!

I recently painted in a care home!

I was bit unsure what to expect to be honest. I was also a bit nervous because the older skin is, the harder it is to paint because of the lack of elasticity and dryness. It can feel like you are dragging the skin sometimes. Still, I wanted to make sure everyone had a good time so I planned for designs that wouldn’t need much line work to minimise any “dragging”.

I also took my #superstarfacepaints because from experience I find those the creamiest to work with, they seem very hydrated so thought they would work better on older skin. As it turned out, the people that wanted painting were all spring chickens anyway! It was a fun day and it was relatives of the residents I painted. Here are a couple of kitty cuties.

I was unsure what to expect in the home itself – the media likes to give lots of bad press to the poor ones but this care home – #Eaglecarehome – seemed lovely. I got such a warm, homely vibe from there and the residents seemed settled and happy. Another wonderful face painting day!

Garden Parties!

We have been having some fabulous weather recently (touch wood!) and yesterday I had the pleasure of painting in not one but two lovely gardens!

First of all, I was painting in Greetland. Its a stunning area of #Calderdale and it is always a pleasure to visit. I took my son camping there a couple of years ago and I adore the woodland and open spaces. It was an eight year old girl’s birthday party.

Eight year olds are sooooo sophisticated these days; apart from myself activities included getting their nails done and a very civilised looking picnic! Oh – and for anyone who missed the memo (like me!) “The Greatest Showman” is  THE movie of the moment!

Next up was Mytholmroyd – up by #ScoutRoadSchool. Again in the garden. Magnificent views once again.Younger children at this celebration and all but one, wanted to be a flower fairy.

No photos but they all looked so cute. Woke up this morning to two fantastic reviews from both customers.

It was wonderful to not have to forfeit the lovely weather in order to go to work. Love my job!
