I hate The Summer Self-Henna Dilemma.

Do I do something AWESOME for myself that I will think is really fun and a challenge to do, pretty to wear, and cool to get a photo of for my portfolio, which I wouldn’t have time to replicate in a festival setting if you begged me to?

Or do I do one of the traditional-but-simple bestsellers, to convince all the people stopping by the festival booth that they DEFINITELY want to upgrade from the simple little kanji or stars they originally had in mind?

Too often I go for the latter (because it works! and I need money!). Give me some ways to rationalize doing the former 🙂
