The joy of seeing repeat customers is so wonderful. I love it! And today those repeat customers were also diehard fans. They were ruddy, tough diehard football fans of the University of Illinois football team. These fans, both young and old, came out in the freezing cold temps to cheer on their Illini team as that team battled the Iowa Hawkeyes.
Meanwhile I got to paint them and it was amazing. Music was pumping, eyes were smiling, the wind was NOT blowing (praise you Jesus)! And there was something else. There was such happiness on the faces of folks who are proud to wear their football teams colors – all over their faces! J
It was just so much fun and I was so happy to be there. Thank you University of Illinois for letting me be a part of coloring up your games. It’s such a happy thing to bring the orange and blue paint, add kids and then just see what happens! J

To be quite honest, after having painted for them for several months now, I am so amazed to be a part of such a wonderful group of people. These are some of the friendliest, most genuine and all-out kind folks that I have ever run across. Their professional yet loving demeanors never cease to amaze and make me proud to work for this great local company.

I am so excited to say that since moving to the Champaign Urbana area I was privileged to be a part of the Urbana Sweet Corn Festival 2012! This was the first large, carnival type event The Joy of Facepainting had ever done and it was a great success. It was such an amazing event. Together, with help from my husband, Jesse, we kept our line flowing and brought lots of smiles to the famous Sweet Corn Festival. What a pleasure for a fresh from the plains of Colorado girl to be a part of this long-standing and classic festival!

So my family and I have been in Champaign for a little over 3 weeks now and I've already had the privilege to face paint some of my local Illinois neighbors. The very tasty Meatheads burger joint in Normal, IL hired me to come out and paint some of their customers. What a great place to have a burger with some friends - and on Saturday, July 14th, you were also able to get your face painted for FREE!
The restaurant is a very welcoming place - clean, bright and filled with really nice employees. They took care of me every step of the way, and I noticed that they did the same for the folks dining with them too. Customer service seemed like their specialty. What a wonderful first experience for me painting in Illinois!!!
I was so happy to be able to paint one of their hostesses. Her name was Annie and her brilliant smile and enthusiasm were as beautiful as the sweet little rainbow she wanted on her cheek.
I also had a couple leopards show up!!! What do you think? I think they look like pretty friendly felines don't you!? ;)

This last Saturday and Sunday I was privileged to do some
face painting in downtown Denver. I was
hired by Fresh Coat Painting (http://www.freshcoatpainters.com/ just in case you ever need your house
painted) to be at the Home & Garden show down at the Colorado
Convention Center. I face painted on
Saturday and Sunday, the 11th and 12th, and I must say
that it was an absolute blast. I loved
seeing all the amazing landscaping and vendors, but it was just extra special
because I met some of the sweetest kids this weekend.
It’s always fun to hear those little “please” and “thank you’s” but often children forget when they look in the mirror. That’s quite alright because I know that it’s just all too exciting to remember little things like that!!! J It’s always all about creating happiness and nothing really else matters. However, it just seemed like so many of the kids were so kind and remembered to say thanks in the midst of their amazing smiles – so heart warming.
