I LOVE HENNA!
It has helped me claim my title, Artist, in a way none of the many other mediums before it did. It has provided an outlet for my entrepreneurial spirit that I never could have imagined as I was falling in love with this very special plant. It has brought me into communities that enrich my life greatly. Henna is a huge blessing to me.
And to my family. My daughter is an excellent artist and a hard worker, and she joins me in the booth and at events often. My son is an excellent booth manager and takes care of the artists and the customers in his calm and caring way, often regaling us with beautiful acoustic guitar in the cool mornings. My younger son is learning the business as well, and will soon be offering glitter tattoos in my booth.
And this weekend, my niece joined the fun for the first time at a super busy festival. She is a natural and did an excellent job managing all the things! It was so fun to spend time with her in that context and to enjoy her presence.
I'm so happy that this little plant became an integral part of my life ten years ago, and subsequently has blessed the whole family!
