The Joy of Facepainting Premieres in Central Illinois

Face Painting in Normal IL at Meatheads
How exciting!

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!? ;)

Valentine's Greetings

February 14th, 2012

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.
