Hello fellow guild members:

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy being part of this group and meeting all of you. If you attended this past guild meeting you had a real treat! Freehand glitter tattoos are awesome. I had almost given up on my glitter tattoo business due to all the personal kits one can get and I found it a hassle to switch between the glitter and face~painting.

Now doing it free hand it will take the same amount of time and wow. The effects are splendid. Thanks to Diane for bringing Tal Thompson to NJ. And Kerry, Your work was magnificent. Thank you so much for sharing it!

Sincerely, with smiles and sparkles too,

"wow.................what a fun night! 

I  enjoyed the talents of Kurt and April so much.  They were very informative as they painted.  I didn't want it to end. so thanks again for inviting them to our amazing group meeting."
