Welcome!

Went on your site - what is your birthday coupon? That sounds like a good marketing tool!

Hi Gen! Welcome to the forum(was it your Crazy Hair I saw all over FABAIC?). Love it! Would it work w/ shorter hair(just touching my shoulders)?
Also, love your face designs, so bright & vibrant!

Hi Gen, I just posted asking about crazy hair about 2 weeks ago, but there was not too much response. Especially where to get it, and where to get instructions. It seems you are a go-to girl for this? If you are ever in the mood, and want to post (maybe in the "how did you do that" section), I would be so grateful!

Welcome! Everyone here is SO very friendly, supportive, and generous...

Hi everyone and THANK YOU!

Kristal - thanks for noticing the birthday club on my website - you can actually sign up for it and receive information on my future face painting classes if your interested (right now I am having one in California and one in the DC area). The birthday club is an awesome marketing tool - at festivals and parties I have a sign up sheet and during my slower months I will send out coupons for the birthdays in that month. I also use the mailing list to send out newsletter on what festivals I'll be at and what specials I am running. It's a great way to generate business and one of the many marketing ideas I talk about in my workshop. Here is an example of my newsletter and info on my workshop (now this one is geared towards face painters but I do them for parties, halloween, etc) - http://campaign.constantcontact.com/render?v=001LEVGr4U1JLPMPNrN3QVuuD0aqz8ksrwSgLO788bhlltJaOlSfdGNzWyJp1Eckv0bAnAbFoyjNFtALJxV2BDbT_9-wwiRwGQHkvSo6Mp-Mkcnj0sXyjwOhw%3D%3D

Crazy Hair - thank you everyone for noticing the beautiful pair my daughter, Savy, is showing off in my profile pic. My daughter's hair is shoulder length and VERY thin - the nice thing about these yarn falls are that they are light so you don't need a lot of hair like the real dread hair fall pieces (if you're not sure what I am talking about I could send photos - I have both kinds). These crazy hair pieces are attached to a pony tail holder so all you have to do it be able to put your own hair up in a ponytail and attach the crazy hair to the ponytail. I'll post my ridiculously geeky YouTube video to give you an idea of what I mean and I do sell them on my site but I have a LOT more amazing colors pieces that I bring to sell at www.Living-Canvas.org and www.KapitalKidvention.com and I will also have them in San Diego for the class Marcela and I are having on September 15th.

Now......I didn't mean to plug myself like that!!! It wasn't my intent for joining the group and I received such a warm and friendly welcome from you all! Just didn't know how else to answer the questions....so forgive me if I broke any rules, I'm just learning my way around at this point.

Well I'm excited to learn from you all and participate in this group!
