Deeper Experiences

Stress Busters for Busy Mums Podcast

_podcastTemplateWe can’t tangibly bottle up all the yummy memories of today and keep them forever, but we can still aim to be more engaged in the experiences we are having.  We can enjoy our children more or even enjoy the movie we are watching in a more engaged way.

Join me in today’s podcast where I share 3 strategies you can apply daily, so you can experience deeper, richer and more meaningful experiences.

Face-Painting the Easy Way

Free Tutorial

This is a free 51 minute video tutorial that will get you face-painting in minutes. To be correct, this is actually cheek art, as we will be avoiding painting eyes, noses and mouths.

This is a very basic tutorial using minimal equipment – just one or two brushes and a one stroke paint pan.  I am using TAG brand paint and Global FX glitter glue in this demonstration.

Another short video will follow that walks you through on-location logistics and how to adhere to Australian Government health standards.
