HI Karen, Hope you are doing well!  That was my first convention and I had a ball.  I took EVERY class opportunity and even came to all the early morning sessions. It was very interesting to experience the culture of face and body painting. I went there especially to get marketing ideas and it did give me some information of routes I could take . I met with Kerry and she was darling and sweet… I also took that one on one with Lea Selley all about WordPress afterwards and I came home and totally changed my website because of that…. sorta took me off the search engine line up, but I’ll regain that… I couldn’t do much more business than I am right now. I’m tired but very happy!  It’s going great!  I really enjoyed the experience and was amazed at the quality of teachers! Thanks again! Kim Millen

Dear Karen,

What a wonderful experience I had attending the Face Painting convention 2011!. I was able to build a stronger face painting arsenal of photos, equipment, skills and technique which I expected to do. What I did not expect to receive was the marketing expertise, and the balloon jamming sessions, and the wonderful new contacts.

What a whirl wind of wonderful options for professional growth.

So grateful for this opportunity. In addition to more creative designs, I now have had the confidence to host to face painting workshops; One for children and one for adults with more to follow.

Thanks to you and and an amazing crew for a phenomenal experience.
