More Fun With Henna

Here are a few more I've been working on. The first one here I did this morning, based off of an image from this site that I found on the web. If you scroll down through all the lovely artwork you'll see the same design, though I'm sure much prettier than mine.

So here is the first picture of my hand:

And here is a more elaborate picture I did for a friend. She saw mine and wanted me to go to town on her (she gave me free reign, I'm not sure why ;) ). So I just ended up doing basically what I had done this morning, with some direction from her, and I really liked how it turned out. I forgot the little dots up the vine on the finger, but it still looks pretty cool.

And last but not least, the one I did on my own chest (which was oh so fun), and gravity ended up working against me after a little while. But it still looks alright.

All in all, not too bad for a day's work ;)

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Fun With Henna

I have been experimenting a bit with henna lately. I started with a little kit, and that went well enough, but then I got into mixing my own. It seemed to work a little better, though the stain isn't quite as strong I don't think. I'll find out after tonight anyway.

So here is my first attempt at my own mix of henna paste, which involved the henna powder, lemon juice, honey and tea tree oil.

By the way, these are pictures of the applied henna while it's drying. I'll try to get the pictures tomorrow after I take the henna paste off, which will leave a lovely little pattern for about 2 weeks.

Left Foot (not as good as the other side, and somehow I managed to smudge one of the leaves)

And I just liked the way this shot turned out. I am definitely loving my new camera!

Sooo... Would This Be A Face Only A Mother Could Love?

These would be my two middle boys, the one with dark hair turned 5 yesterday. This was supposed to be a cute picture of him, until the 3yo decided to get involved. Ah, boys. Gotta love 'em, right?

What, Are They Bored Now?

Does anyone else here remember the New Kids On The Block? I do. I had the biggest crush on Joey. I secretly hoped that he would notice me from the stage and whisk me away to some strange fantasy world or another. Of course, the chances of that having happened, were nonexistent. I only went to one concert, and we sat in the grass. In the way back. They were little specks on stage. It was sad, I know.

So, what I'm trying to figure out now, is why on earth they feel the need to come back? I mean, c'mon, they're closing in on 40, and there's just something not right about a boy band trying to come back. Know what I mean?

So, I have to ask.

1. What was your favorite NKOTB song?

2. Who was your favorite NKOTB?

For me it would have to be

I'll Be Loving You (Forever)

Joey McIntyre

And for your viewing pleasure, so you too can be reminded of how bad their dancing really was:
