: Batra has in her book. No exaggeration.

I think most of the regulars here have all read that book, myself
included. Some of her designs I liked real well, like the ankle and
wrist cuffs, but most of it was so-so.

Doesn't matter, keep hennaeing! And keep posting! All of us are at a

willing to call myself a "henna artist" and not cringe inwardly at
the grandiousity. :)
