Happy New Year!

Things have been quiet lately here — I haven’t done much henna since Thanksgiving. 🙁

Today things were extremely slow at work because all of our clients skipped out early for the three-day weekend, so we had nothing to do. I had a couple old cones and lemons in the fridge there, and some design ebooks on my flash drive, so I sat down and started doing henna on whoever wanted some.


I started with the boys, ironically. My good friend told me just to doodle (and requested Spiderman’s face after I outlined the Moroccan frame — so I gave him a spider in a spider web). I unfortunately didn’t get pictures of the two scorpions I did. They turned out rather well.

Then I did the ladies. We had a heart with my coworker’s son’s initials in it, and a racy little flower just below my other coworker’s collarbone. I also did some designs from Amira‘s books on myself, one of my other good friends, and a coworker’s girlfriend.


Unfortunately, I don’t think anybody’s stains are going to be that great. Those cones had been sitting in the fridge at work for over a week, and prior to that they went to St. Maarten and back without ice packs. I know it’s not totally dead though, so hopefully with good aftercare, everybody will enjoy their henna!

    So the color actually showed?? I’m SO HAPPY! The color on my hand didn’t turn out too bad either, but I was really afraid that the henna I was using was completely spent.
