I really love these bindi body stickers.  They have lovely iridescent beads covering them.

Sketchbook Project 2011

Have you heard of this?  It's the coolest thing ever!

The Art House Co-Op offers this interactive art exhibit and ANYONE can be a part of it!  Even me!  That's right, I've signed up to be part of the Sketchbook Project 2011.

So what exact is it, you want to know?

It's like a concert tour but with sketchbooks.

Here's how it works.  You purchase a blank sketchbook (by October 31st) and fill it with ANYTHING you want; drawings, paintings, stories, pictures, collages, stickers, ANYTHING!  You sent it back to the Art House Co-Op (by January 15th) and then in March 2011, the tour of 6 American cities begins that includes ALL of the Sketchbooks on display!

After the tour is over all the sketchbooks become part of the permanent display at the Brooklyn Art Library.

The really cool thing (as if this isn't cool enough) is you can track your sketchbook through the entire process.  You can see how many people have looked at your specific book.

Learn more about The Sketchbook Project 2011 and get started at the project website!

I've completed the first page of my sketchbook doing what I know best...henna!  Who knows what will fill the rest of those pages? 

What will fill your Sketchbook pages?

Become part of this interactive art exhibit at The Sketchbook Project 2011.

Happy Sketching!

Positive Henna Energy

I know many people do not believe in the power of henna energy.  I am here to tell you it exists and is powerful!
Healing Henna
This henna design uses sprouts for growth and life, peacocks for luck and blessings, open style flowers to accept and attract positive energies.

When I create a henna design on someone I try to work with their energy to create a design especially suited to them.  When possible, I try to attract the kind of energy that they currently need in their lives.  Diane of the YOU Health Center here in Orlando coined my henna, "Henna with Intention", and I think that's perfect! 
Violet's Beautiful Soul Henna
Violet is one of my favorite people to henna.  She is simply the best canvas!  Every design comes out gorgeous on her!

Sometimes that energy needed is healing either physically or emotionally.  Other times someone needs the courage to make a change or to take on new challenges in their lives.  Sometimes a woman wants to have a baby and needs fertility henna.  It doesn't matter the reason for the henna, the point is henna can be part of creating your own reality!
Celia's GREAT karma!
Every design I do on Celia is different!  She is just layers and layers of energy goodness!

You can feel the positive energy flowing when henna is being done!  As long as you have color, you should still be able to reconnect with that great henna energy.

Nina's Life Balance
 Nina needed some balance and perspective to help her with big changes in her life.  This henna is ripe for tackling new opportunities and staying calm while doing so.

When you do henna or have henna done on you, take a moment to reflect about what you need.  Concentrate on infusing those energies into your design.
Connecting henna and woman power!
These two women had a wonderful bond and I was happy to be able to pull connecting elements in their henna.  The woman on the right needed some courage and fortitude so we did plenty of spirals.
Have fun and happy henna'ing!

Eid Mehndi: Henna Tattoos for Eid

New clothes, check.  New jewelry, check.  Have you thought about your Eid Henna yet?

You can't allow Eid to pass without henna on your hands!  You can do your Eid henna yourself, get together with friends and do henna on each other, or you can have henna applied professionally.

Eid mehndi is best done on the palms of the hands, but you can have your henna applied wherever you'd like. 

For the best possible color on Eid morning, your henna should be done on the 7th or the 8th at the latest.  Your henna tattoo needs time to cure and oxidize for full color. Even Monday the 6th is a good day to have your henna done for Eid.

If you plan on doing henna yourself, Friday September 3 is the last day to order henna from Beachcombers Bazaar for priority shipping.

There are still slots open to have your Eid henna applied by Jody of Beachcombers on both Tuesday the 6th and Wednesday the 8th.  If you want a slot, schedule your henna appointment today!

Eid Mubarak!
