Kindness Rocks: How to Make them Last

Kindness rocks are becoming a more and more popular way for people to express their creativity while supporting others. One can find a kindness rock almost anywhere: left on a shelf of a grocery store, on a bench in a park, somewhere along a walking trail. Some kindness rocks feature pretty pictures, other have funny faces doodled on them, some have positive affirmations while others will quote the Bible. No …

Do You Like to Color?

My art journey started with my very first attempts with adult coloring books. A few years ago I really needed to find a way to have some “me time” while being a stay-at-home of two young boys. I picked up a couple of coloring books from Amazon, ordered some not-so-fancy gel pens and got to work. Funny thing, I found out the coloring pages drove me even more stressed than …

Is Blogging even my Thing?

Ha! That’s a great question to ask myself when I feel like I’m failing everyone who reads my blog by procrastinating and not posting new entries. The truth is that it is much easier for me to communicate through image and bullet points, my brain feels stuck every time I need write something decent. As I’m looking for a good solution, I am starting to read Lisa Congdon’s book on …

Mr. Bushy Tail Fox and Henna

Wow! This was a while back and I never published it! This design was first created in my sketch book while I was sharing my vacation with my family at the Azov Sea in Ukraine. I shared the sketch in my Instagram feed and my good friend Grace reached out to me to have it done on her arm. Henna is an amazing way to connect and reconnect. We had …

Fall Mandala Henna

I created this design to help me teach the concept of combining ornamental elements, such as acorns here with a traditional mandala. I had so much fun working with my model! She was my inspiration and as you can see below, the design came out crisp and very gothic. Gosh, I just love it and can’t get enough of it! I think dark colored nails and purple glittery background totally …

Henna for Men

Never ever had I thought that my love for henna would inspire my own kids! I couldn’t imagine my boys would like the flowery designs I am so fond of. And they don’t. They always ask for something manly. Manly henna… Hmm… I had no idea there really was a market for henna for men. And then I find all these beautiful and very inspirational images. So, when my 8-year-old to-be …

Henna at a Birthday Party

One of the things I really enjoy about henna business is the fact that clients literally drop into my lap from nowhere! For instance, this lady wanted me to come to her 15 years old daughter’s birthday party. It only took us a couple of messages to exchange and the date was set. The way she had it done was that each guest paid for their henna. Although there is …

The Rose Henna Tattoo

I am an artist. These words are so strange and so exciting! You see, growing up, I never took any art classes. I never thought I was gifted. My friends were a lot more skilled when it came to doodling in notebooks at boring classes. I, myself, grew frustrated while trying to mimic their pretty dainty designs. Drawing a rose was always the top level of the artistry to me. …
