Hello from Michigan!

Post by jmmsunshine on Tue Sep 09, 2014 7:33 am

Hi everyone! I've been a lurker for a while now and have really enjoyed the comments you all have!

Three years ago I went to my DS kindergarten teacher and said, "Hey, I'd like to face paint the kids on the last day of school." I'd never face painted before... I'd never painted or drawn before. I bought my paints on a Wed, practiced on my kids on Thurs, and painted 36 kids on Friday! WHEW - after that I was totally exhausted, and totally hooked! After, I painted mostly at church functions and just this past March created my LLC - My Fun Faces. I've thoroughly enjoyed this past summer getting more and more painting gigs - sooooo much fun!

I also own Nurturing Naturally where I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in private practice. I see Moms in their homes and help them with breastfeeding. It is an amazing job and I feel privileged to have families invite me in at such a tender time. I see the gamut in cases from normal engorgement and sore nipples to more complex cases like failure to thrive, oral dysfunction, and neurologically impaired babies.

I'm married to a wonderful man and we have 3 amazing kids, a cat, and a dog. I'm active at my church and lead the bible moment in our Mom's group. Life is crazy during this season and my house seems like it's never clean!

Welcome to the Forum jmmsunshine!
There is a kind, warm, welcoming, non-judgemental place to post and share your work in the thread "Show and Tell". There is a game of Face Paint Tag going on in the thread "Tag You Are It". This game is to exercise our painty muscles to be ready for those on-the-job weird requests we get, when kids try to play "Stump the Face Painter".
The Face Paint Forum Shop (the colourful rectangle in the above column) has competitive pricing and FAST shipping.
I was born in Warren at 9Mi & Van Dyke. (Um..not at the actual intersection...close by). Where in MI do you live?

Happy Painting!

I went to Lincoln.
Marshall Mathers went to my school, many years after I left. I am puzzled by his song "Eight Mile" because I grew up in the same neighbourhood.
Then, we moved to Garland, Texas, just outside Dallas. Then we moved to Altamonte Springs, just outside Orlando....then we moved to Mississauga, Ontario, just outside Toronto. I now live in Toronto....which is beside Mississauga!
