: NYC. I had thought I was pretty good, impressing the locals
: then when I saw the designs the other "pros" were knocking out, I
: almost ashamed I had been charging for it. After getting home and
: looking at my old pictures again, I realized I wasn't as bad as I
: thought at the time, but I did sit down to think about why I wasn't
: better. I especially thought about Heather's design. I'd never
: before seen something so intricate and gorgeous, not to mention she
: covered up a design I thought couldn't be done. I thought a lot
: about this. I've been doing henna on myself for ten years and
: who have been doing it for half as long are doing stuff that's
: better than me. I knew I would have to make a change, but I didn't
: know what until just now.
: On a whim, I rolled a cone like Heather showed us at Sirius NYC and
: started doodling. I had a decent design on the back of my hand,
: I was going to be working at an Indian restaurant and I needed to
: impressive, which the back of the hand wasn't to people who are
: to bridal mehndi. WOW. The result was the picture posted above.
: This is far and away the best work I've ever done. I'm remembering
: that I started out using a rolled cone and doing lovely work, of
: course nothing like this! I took the cones to an event and did
: terrific designs that I know would not have turned out so well done
: by any other means. I finally feel like I'm doing the art I always
: knew I could. The link below has both the pictures from Sirius
: inspired me and some other pics I took this weekend. There's also
: picture of Max and Quinn, for those of you who wanted to see them.
: Thank you so much to everyone here who has been such a great help
: inspiration!! Also thanks to Alissa for her help with the page.
