Excited to the point of obsession

Post by Morninglory on Wed Jun 25, 2014 5:44 pm

Ok, I'm not a professional by any stretch of the imagination, but I have two young boys who love to have their faces painted. The best part is it is creative and fun for me as well!!!

I am a stay at home mother of the above mentioned boys ages 2&4. I picked up my first paint set a week ago and am completely hooked!

At the moment everything I do is very raw and stylized. This coming Saturday I am going to a church picnic and will bring my new passion to share with all the kids (in age and at heart).

From day one I have been reading everything I can find, I tend to go OCD in my hobbies, and have come to the realization that with some practice I could actually make money doing something I enjoy.  

I hope to learn from y'all and one day have the ability to inspire and teach others.


Soo, I have introduced myself and will now crawl through the boards. Remember the name morninglory for you will see it again. cheers

Welcome! I started at Halloween just to help with my girl's costumes, and found out I had a new obsession. So I'm much the same.
See you around!

I tend to obsess, too.
I think the ones who do, stick with it longer.
Welcome to the forum!
I look forward to hearing what you think when your kids get tired of it and roll their eyes when you need to practice, lol.
Mine were over it pretty quickly.
Now I have to bribe them.
And sometimes, when they are in trouble, they will redeem their consequences in trade for being a practice dummy.  Laughing

Lol I'm only 2 weeks in and have to work them up to being excited about it. The first 3 days they loved it, I could do one than the other, play for 10min wash it off and go again all day. Guess the novelty has worn off.

I like the working off a punishment idea I may use it soon.
