Dear Heather, I've got a confession. I've been running a henna business for a while now, but I still don't have insurance for my business. Am I terrible? Should I get it? This one event says I have to have it or else I can't participate... I realize that it is the legit thing to [...]

The host, Matt, was talking about how the mostly-male pirates were very often busy sailing and looting, away from shore for long periods of [...]

Rainbow Brite Henna – ’80s Nostalgia Time!

By | November 18th, 2017|Uncategorized|

Indian Persian Henna Design

By | April 2nd, 2017|Uncategorized|

This design is inspired by my new favorite outfit - an Indian wool salwar kameez set with Persian inspired patterning. The design takes inspiration from the motifs on the fabric, but also from the structure of the motifs themselves. There are strongly outlined borders, large focal motifs, and swirling repetitive patterns in all the "extra" [...]
