Dye Release Times for Different Henna Powders

By | September 6th, 2020|Uncategorized|

It has come to my attention that there is precious little information out there about comparing dye release times of different henna powders, at least for body art use. Apparently most of the info out there is for mixes for hair, which do include things like apple cider vinegar (which body art mixes don't use [...]

Meeting Alka Joshi I had the pleasure of meeting and doing henna on author Alka Joshi, author of The Henna Artist, at the Spring Fling Henna Conference. She read an excerpt from her book, which we all enjoyed. She then told us about how it was basically her exercise in writing an storyline for how [...]

Week 3: Sights + SoundsThis week, I took my normal walk through the park, this time focusing on both the sights and sounds around me simultaneously. I recorded these three short videos that feature prominent man-made landmarks within the park...including the fences and the farm animals kept inside them (no groundhog this time - goats [...]

Walking Sonic Meditations

By | July 4th, 2020|Uncategorized|

There were three major sounds I kept noticing on my walk this week - cars passing, my own feet, and birds. When I think about past walks, all I really remember are the sounds of the birds, probably because that is what is more sonically unique to me. I hear the sounds of my own [...]

Walking as Creative Practice – Photographic Revisit

By | June 27th, 2020|Walking as Creative Practice|

I went back along the same path through the park I had walked earlier in the week. These are the photographs I took on my walk. It's interesting how we say we "take" photographs, isn't it? I wonder who first decided that was the verb that would get used for this art form. Anyway...on with [...]

Walking as Creative Practice – And So It Begins

By | June 25th, 2020|Thriving Artist, Walking as Creative Practice|

I go on walks quite often. It's my main form of exercise - especially when I can't go out dancing, because during a pandemic, that is no longer a thing. Truth be told, I usually try to find a way to make the walk "useful" in some way. Listening to podcasts and calling family are [...]

Dear Heather – Do I Need Insurance to Do Henna?

By | March 13th, 2019|Dear Heather|

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 [...]
