the latest....

These were done in the last week. Unfortunately I couldn't do the farmer's market as planned for this weekend, but I hope to be back there at some point. In the meantime, I have been busy with some private appointments.

wanted to try something on my foot, as I will be going to Maine tomorrow and wanted to have something cool for the beach. It is hard to get the line where I want it, when I do it on myself. This one wrapped all the way around the back of my foot and ended at my big toe. I love it.
(the flower is left over from last weekend's farmer's market)

sunny lately

Two different clients, two versions of a sun.

This woman wanted the idea of a sun, but seemed drawn to this type of design.

The second was my brother-in-law and he wanted a sun, with the initials of his wife and two kids inside the circle. (this photo is taken from above, looking down on his shoulder)

market day

had a slow but good day at the farmer's market. We will be back there in two weeks.

This girl wanted the vine and flowers to wrap around her arm....

This woman wanted something that looked 'kind of like' scrolled ironwork, but she wouldn't stop moving, so it was kind of hard to have straight lines. Luckily she loved it!

The view from the Star Henna booth...... a fabulous local organic farm and all of their goods are displayed so nicely- just beautiful!

Raffle winner

This was an appointment that was from a woman who won a free appointment with me that I raffled off at EGGStock in June.

She had her daughter there, a friend, and her daughter too. It was a fun appointment to do.

Farmer's market

This Sunday, July 15th, I will have a tent at the Farmer's Market in Collinsville. It is open from 10-2 and I will be there promptly ready to henna before 10.

I look forward to seeing any returning clients and to trying some new patterns.

many cousins

I did a 2 1/2 hour appointment today where I hennaed about 10 people. It was fun and they chose very diverse things some of which they drew for me to copy. It was quite a mix of genders/ ages/ personalities.
The teenage boys chose some gross things that they drew for me to copy: bloody knife in an eye, snake tongued skull, etc. Luckily the women and girls picked some more things that were a bit more 'normal' and that I enjoyed creating!

listed on Henna Page

Adam created a banner ad for me to put onto the Henna Page in the artist's directory. It has only been there for about 48 hours, and my 'Star Henna' website has had plenty of traffic just from there! Visitors have clicked on it from far and wide: Dubai, Hungary, Singapore, Saudi, Connecticut, California, Australia, Tapei, and more!

back garden

This was chosen to compliment a dress for a bridal shower. The flowers were part of the pattern of the dress, so she chose to have them on her back. It came out well and looked pretty.
