Wow, it's been such a busy year I've only just had time to edit all the photos. Thank you for your patience...
Poole College: after a Monday of rain I was pleasantly surprised to wake up to bright sunshine. A perfect start to Day 1 of Bournemouth and Poole’s College Freshers Fair. Arranged by Brian and Bournemouth & Poole College Student Union crew there were many stalls and local businesses providing information and support to the new Freshers along with myself, a wicked DJ and a bucking bronco to add some fun, face paint and sparkle. Most of the students went for the glitter festival faces with a few here and there opting for face paint or arm designs. As usual there was a slow start but as soon as one got the courage to get in my seat then i didn't stop until the end.
Bournemouth College: Day 2, again after a Wednesday of rain the weather held out for us. Starting off grey we did wonder if the rain would start but no, the sun popped her head out again later in the afternoon. Two gorgeous days for a great bunch of Freshers. I was delighted when staff members who I've seen in previous years told me they look forward to seeing me each year. It's always such fun and a great example when the staff get involved and I love creating smiles on everyone. This time their words created a smile on me.
Thank you to Brian and everyone who helped organise yet another successful BPCSU Freshers Fair and to all who came to see me. I look forward to spreading more sparkles and smiles next year, if not before. Here's a few pics I managed to take. Until next year...
About the author
I have been face painting and creating smiles with my hair braids, tattoos and body paints for 13 years after finally taking the jump and becoming self employed in 2006. Having a large network of friends I have been able to establish a network of quality face painters and glitter tattoo artists who have a passion for the job which shows in their work throughout the South & South West of England. Orginating from a customer service & sales background the best thing I ever did was become self employed. The money might not be as good but the job satisfaction seeing lots of happy smiles is the best. I hope to continue for many more years to come.
