November Face Painting

We were very busy in November!  Beautiful weather for face painting :)

The first weekend of the month we were painting at the Picayune Fall Street Fair!  Rudi was busy that weekend, so I was the only painter, and Savannah did glitter tattoos.  We were swamped!  The first day was unusually windy and cold and people mostly waited til noon to come out when it was a little warmer.  I didn't stop from noon til 5pm to even take a sip of water!  Sunday was warmer and less windy and we were steady busy all day.

The second weekend of the month was the last weekend of the Bluejack Ridge Corn Maze.  We were so sad to see it end!  We absolutely love this place- so friendly and laid-back.  On the last day, we face painted the baby pot-bellied pigs, Pigahontas and John Smith, and dolled them up with feather boas and a pirate bandana.  They were so cute!  We even painted up Lilly, the goat :)  Can't wait for next year!

The third weekend we were at a birthday party in New Orleans at the playground in City Park and had a blast!  Extremely friendly crowd!  Then on Sunday, we volunteered at our church's annual Harvest Sunday celebration and painted everyone as a special treat during the afternoon festivites.  We even painted on the "grown-ups" who couldn't wait to get dolled up!

The last weekend of the month was, of course, Thanksgiving, and it was so nice to get away and visit family.  It was my first weekend off from painting in 10 weeks!  But now I can't wait for all of December's Christmas activities...

Hope to see ya'll at Christmas on the Ranch at the Rockin' R Ranch in Picayune with a country Santa, lighted carriage rides, face painting, etc.  It's gonna be a blast!  We'll also be at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on Dec. 21 for a Children's Christmas Party.  Fun, fun fun!!!
