“Kathy, Kathy, Kathy! Don’t you know we always have to have TWO tubes of red lipstick? It’s part of our daily lives. We wake up, we put on our red lipstick, we go paint and we move on!”
Here I am on Day 3. In our iLoveToCreate booth, we debuted this super cool new body art paint and had an artist there demoing. She painted a sacred heart on my cheek. As I admired it in the mirror, a bell went off in my head!
|This is the chola stage of my lipstick application. You like?|
I asked her to paint my lips! It’s body art paint, right? So she did! As she was working on me, about halfway through, I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned around to see all of the executive iLTC team with the CEO of Michaels.
“Kathy, we have someone we want you to meet!” I slowly turned around and watched as they all slightly flinched in surprise.
“Oh! As you can see, Kathy is trying out our new Tulip Body Art paint!” someone said. We all giggled.
Inside, I was thinking “The one time my face is painted like a True Blood groupie, I meet the CEO of Michaels!” Not only that – but later in the day I had an important lunch with some editors. What a day to get my face painted! It all went over well, it was the craft convention, after all!
My lesson learned is that you always have to be prepared to rock with or without our security blanket, whatever it may be. As far as make-up, clothes or jewelry, true beauty comes from within and sometimes we are put to the test to rely on that.
As a reminder, I’m giving all of you a tube of invisible red lipstick. It has the special power to transform into anything you need it to become in order to help you shine, shine, shine!
What is your security blanket? Please share!Love & light,
