A Day in a Dragon’s Life

Ever wonder what dragons do all day? You may think that they just hoard gold and breathe fire, but dragons lead a surprisingly normal life. Here’s a glimpse into what goes on:

First, they sit and think.

Then they start working on some chores, like mowing the lawn,

And watering the plants.

They spend time keeping their claws nice and tidy.

They take breaks by watching movies,

And make afternoon snacks.

They clean up the dishes,

And mop the kitchen floor.

Then to top off the day, they go for a car ride! Wheeee!

Egyptian and Mehndi-Inspired Body Painting

I had my paints out at an “Arabian Nights”-themed party and painted the night away! I painted 22 people over the course of the evening, but as usual, I started forgetting to snap photos of each one. I’m glad I created the boards of design options, it really helped give people direction. All of the designs done with brush and sponge.

Design Board. Offering limited options is a great way to manage your time with a large group of people.
