December 31st in downtown Fredericksburg at the Fredericksburg First Night.

Have a wonderful holiday season everyone. Remember to book your next event with Fantasy Face Painting.

Halloween Carnival Success

Whew! I made it through the day. I never stopped painting once the Westchester Commons Halloween Carnival began. It was a beautiful day for family fun.

Due to the sheer volume of people in attendance, I was limited to quick cheek designs. I had lots of rainbows, pumpkins, spiders, skulls, snakes, bats, ghosts, hearts, cats, flowers, butterflies, dragonflies and even a candy corn nose.

My next public event is at the Salem Run Apartment Houses on Saturday, October 30th from 1 p.m. until 2 p.m. I will be face painting quick cheek art designs. Then I will be onto a private Halloween Birthday party for the late afternoon and evening that will include full face paintings and temporary glitter tattoos. I'm looking forward to both.

Remember to book your next event with Fantasy Face Painting.

Face Painting at Parties, Competitions and More

I've met so many wonderful people while face painting throughout central Virginia. I'm happy to say that I've been very busy.

I've been face painting at corporate functions, family reunions, church functions, birthday parties, princess parties, subdivision events, summer camps, school plays and sports competitions just this month. It's been a blast.

Thank you to everyone. I've got the best job around!

You can find Fantasy Face Painting at both and now. I'm very excited about having both domains.

National Night Out Face Painting Fun

I had a blast up in Stafford, Virginia at the Highpointe HOA face painting for their National Night Out event. There was a nice family turn out, face painting, police cars, police dogs and fire trucks. I actually took a moment and snapped a great picture of two brothers with their mom's permission. One wanted to be a blue cat and the other was a puppy dog. They did inform me that they'd be chasing each other around later. The puppy dog nailed the "woof, woof" too. They were cute.

Ladysmith Day and Parties Galore

I'm getting a little bit better at snapping pictures. Not much but I'm a work in progress. This first snapshot is of my young apprentice, my daughter. It was her first event, Ladysmith Day. My table looks a tiny messed up as it was a windy day. We were trying to place heavy items on the sponges and such so that they wouldn't blow away. We were lucky that the rain held off until we left for the day. She was thrilled to be placed in charge of rainbows and stencil art. As the day progressed, she grew in confidence and started to enjoy herself. We had a great time face painting at Ladysmith Day over in the Ladysmith Business Park near the side stage. Of course, she wasn't happy that I was taking her photo here. LOL

The second photo is from one of the many birthday parties I did this weekend after Ladysmith Day. This was from a princess/pirate themed party. The birthday girl wanted a pink butterfly eye and a flower cheek. Once her friends saw her face, they all wanted what she had. It was cute. The boys all wanted their pirate eye patches and skull tattoos. No one wanted a mustache or beard. Funny. Let's not forget the moms and adults. Yes, they joined in too. Why not? I had a couple of moms get their jeweled queen crowns (say that a couple of times) to go. Fun was had.

Face Painting at Ladysmith Day 2010

Don't forget about Ladysmith Day 2010 tomorrow, Saturday, May 22nd. I am just one of the many entertainers that will be there. I will be face painting from 12-4 with an hour break thrown in there (hoping - most likely not, LOL).

I will be keeping the designs simple and quick this year (cheek/1 eye/arm art). The lines were just too long last year and more people are expected this year. I will also have an assistant with me. She will be doing rainbows and stencils. So, if you have a very young child, you will definitely want her fast line.

I'm hoping that the rain holds off as we do not have a tent being supplied. So, if it starts raining, I'm afraid that I'll have to be leaving. Water will wipe me out every time. If we're lucky, we'll be face painting until 4 p.m. The line will be stopped at 3:30 as I do have another event to get to in Fredericksburg.

Pictures, pictures, pictures......I must take some pictures! I will try to pause to get this accomplished.

Sunday will see me in the Richmond area for a princess/pirate themed birthday party. I'm booked next Saturday for 2 events also.

I hope to see you at Ladysmith Day tomorrow.

Birthday Party Face Painting

I've been a very busy lady face painting at birthday parties this weekend. I did manage to take one quick picture of some arm art that I painted over at a birthday party in Colonial Beach. It became a fast hit for the girls and moms at the party. I'll be at Ladysmith Day (Exit 110 off of I-95) on Saturday, May 22nd, from 12-4 p.m. This is a free event for the public. Definitely come out for some great family fun.

Face Painting at Lifecare in Fredericksburg

I face painted at Lifecare in Fredericksburg this past Wednesday evening. They had a breast cancer awareness community event at their facility. It was wonderful.

It was especially lovely to hear some of the survivors speak. My family has battled with this disease for years. It wiped out all of my grandfather's sisters. Then it struck my mother's generation. It has taken several of my mother's cousins. Luckily, my mom is a survivor. I sure hope and pray that they can come up with a cure for this horrible disease.

I met some fabulous people at the event. There were lots of breast cancer pink ribbons painted and glittered along with many face masks, butterflies, dragons, skulls, pink animals, and even a silly looking pink ambulance.

Please remember to get your mammogram done and do self examinations.

I truly had a blast face painting at this event! Remember, I don't just face paint at birthday parties. I face paint at all sorts of events. Keep Fantasy Face Painting in mind for your next event.

Face Painting in Stafford Lakes Village

I had a lovely time this afternoon into the evening hours face painting in the Stafford Lakes Village community up in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

Centex Homes hosted an ice cream social. It was a beautiful day for it too.

I got to paint quite a few skulls, fancy eye designs, rainbows, turtles and even a devil eye mask on one of the Centex employees. That was funny.

I'm sure everyone would agree that it was fun filled. Thank you to Rebecca and Grace from Centex Homes!

Face Painting at the Great Train Race 2010

Wow, it was a hot and humid day at the Great Train Race in downtown Fredericksburg this past Sunday, May 2nd. The kids that ran definitely earned their medals!

Five hours non-stop of face painting fun meant for a lot of different faces. I'm glad that I had help from some other great area face painters. We were busy.

I did get a chance to stop for a minute and grab a quick picture of this little cutie after her race. She wanted some pretty flowers down the side of her face. She was pretty happy with it I'm glad to say.

Hopefully you will all catch my ad that will be running in the Free Lance-Star for the next couple of weeks. I'll be face painting next Monday evening, May 10th, at Stafford Lakes. Centex Homes is hosting an Ice Cream Social from 4-6:30. Come on out and enjoy yourselves while checking out their community. Hope to see you there.

Snowiest Winter

Snow, snow, snow and more snow!

The mid-Atlantic region has definitely seen alot of snow this season. I'm taking this moment to whisper sweet nothings to mother nature on this Valentine's Day. Hopefully this will end our digging out pattern.

I've been a busy girl. No hibernation for me.

Events booked for the upcoming months are: Kids Fun Day/Easter Carnival at the Westchester Commons (March 27), Ladysmith Day (May 22), and Hartwood Days (September 11).

I have some other fun stuff that I'm working on including some Renaissance Faires, my beloved Highland Games and Celtic Festival along with a possible "nutty" gig here and there.

It is a promising year and I intend to keep everyone informed as event dates approach.

Happy face painting in 2010.

Happy 2010

I've been away for a bit. Actually, I was in Florida for most of December and came home to a flooded house. So I've been cleaning up and still in the process of drying out.

I'm looking forward to the new year and face painting throughout central Virginia again. I'm definitely blessed to be enjoying my work.

Thank you to everyone that made 2009 such a wonderful experience. I hope to see you all again this year face painting at your parties, picnics and festivals.

Several events for 2010 have already been booked and I'm excited to be involved.

Here's to a healthy and happy new year filled with fantasy from Fantasy Face Painting.
