Festival Season is Here!

Phew! We've been extremely busy this summer!

The weekend of July 19-21 we were in Clarksville, AR for the Johnson County Peach Festival and it was HOT---110 degrees+!  My son, Jordan, worked as our line manager and became his alter-ego of "Tiger Man".  He created the Tiger Man Tour for our festivals this summer ;)  The kids love him!
After Clarksville, we drove to Eufaula, OK for their Whole Hawg Days festival the weekend of July 26-28.  Another hot one! My oldest daughter, Chelsea, came with us as well and became "Diva Tiger" which all the little girls really loved.
After Eufaula, we went to Claremore, OK, northeast of Tulsa, for the Gatesway Hot Air Balloon Festival the weekend of August 3-4.  Unfortunately, the weather was too windy to see any hot air balloons go up, and on Saturday there were wildfires in the area and the smoke was too thick for the balloons to go up.  And it was HOT!  115 degrees for the regular temp with heat index values over 120 degrees.  We felt like we were melting :(  We still painted up lots of people!
Next, we came "home" to northwest Arkansas to the Tontitown Grape Festival the weekend of August 9-11.  Beautiful weather and we teamed up with a local face painter out of Fayetteville, Donna Holloway of Make-N-Faces.  We had a fantastic time and painted lots of people.  This was a whole family that we painted up!
After Tontitown, we literally came home and set up at the Benton County Fair in Bentonville the week of August 14-19.  We had some scary storm moments but otherwise had a great week. We even had some little girls want to be "Diva Tiger" too!
This week we'll be in Rogers, AR for the Frisco Festival the weekend of August 24-25, then next week at the Washington County Fair.  If you're in the area, come on out and see us! More pictures to come :)

Summer is here and it's HOT!

We've been super busy since my last post and things have dramatically heated up!

We've been doing lots of birthday parties in Centerton, Bentonville, and Fayetteville.

This past week we painted and glittered at a Grand Opening for a new elementary school in Bentonville called Willow Brook.  We even made the front page of the newspaper!

Then on Saturday we were a part of Cash Mob Fayetteville at Terra Tots store where we painted up everyone :)

And today we were at another elementary school event in Bella Vista where it was around 102 degrees... it was HOT!  But it didn't deter anyone from getting painted.  Lots of fun :)

Next month starts 5 straight weeks of festivals in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri.  Let's just hope it's not quite so hot for those!

Spring is here!

Spring is here and face painting and glitter art is in high gear!

Team One in Arkansas just completed a 3-day festival in Siloam Springs that was super successful.  We estimate we painted and glittered over 300 people during those 3 days! 

We've also done a few birthday parties in Springdale, Bentonville and Centerton, as well as the Bentonville Kids Come First Campaign Rally near Crystal Bridges Museum of Art, and the Radiant Life Easter Kids Carnival in Bentonville.

In May, we'll be at the Fayetteville Block Street Block Party on May 20, so if you're in the area, come out and see us!

Team Two in Mississippi has been extremely busy, with the Picayune Street Fair, lots of birthday parties, and the Navy Seabees Day in Gulfport. 

The calendars for both teams are filling up FAST, so if you want to book us, don't wait!

I know it's been a while since I posted, but I've been busy with the move :)

We have done a few birthday parties in our new home of Northwest Arkansas and they were a blast!

Rudi and Team Two in South Mississippi have been super busy, with the BlueJack Ridge Corn Maze and Picayune Street Fair in October, the Hard Rock Casino Christmas Party and Christmas in Dixie in December, and lots and lots of birthday parties!

Savannah and I (Team One) in Northwest Arkansas will be painting at Sam's Old Tyme Hamburgers in Rogers this Saturday from 12-2pm for the Grand Opening of their play place.  We may be there on a weekly basis so check back!

We've redone our entire setup to be more efficient and take less time to setup and clean up, in an effort to help out our party hosts.  Our setup and break down now only take about 5 minutes each, but we'll still continue to arrive at our host's home about 15 minutes before we're supposed to start painting :)
