Thanks guys!

I am a SAHM, I have 5 kids aged 10 and under...BUT in a previous dim and distant barely remembered life I was a graphic artist, working on backgrounds for video games. I studied art at college and I've always been creative.

The face painting thing came through the kids really, a friend got me some STOCKMAR natural pigment paints a couple of years ago, I played around with them at her kids parties and found them to be fun, but the colours are dull....natural pigments.....duh Smile

Last year my FIL was 60 and we had a big party for him, loads of family and friends so loads of kids with faces that needed painting, we got a snazaroo kit and I ended up spending most of the day painting faces....the same kids over and over Smile I was meaning to practice more and go on a course but we had to move twice in a couple of months and we had another baby....so I'm only just getting back into it.

Wow, you can remember when your kids were younger, this is very encouraging to me! I feel so tired I swear that I'll forget all the good bits Wink

I hope to be able to do some weekend work some time, I nurse the baby though so it will be a while before i can leave him for long.

Yes, it seems pretty nice. We've only been here a few months, we lived up north in Durham before that for a few years.

I must get round to taking the kids to the castle at Warwick, I haven't been since I was a kid Smile

Thanks so much for all the lovely welcome messages.
