Please post your Thursday Sharing for May 13 into this thread!

Thank you all in advance for sharing!
When you can, post a url for your picture rather than hotlinking the picture .... there are several reasons for this:

Many people have limited bandwidth. If a hotlink pops their picture up every time some opens the thread, they may quickly exceed their bandwidth, and then nobody gets to see their picture.

Its nice to see your picture in the context of the rest of your work!

The page will open more quickly for everyone if the sharing is done with text links rather than hotlinks.

There are some people who love to harvest other people's henna pictures to hotlink to their own forums, or fill up their photobuckets. The text link may add some slight deterrance to this. I recommend you check your stats a week after you post your pictures to see if they're getting hotlinked onto another forum. If so .... you're having to pay for the bandwidth while they get their jollies.

If you don't know how to size your picture to less than 800 px wide, please post a text link rather than hotlinking the picture. When there are very large pictures, it makes the whole thread difficult to read.

You can use the quote comment to talk about one particular person's pictures

We got in a new shipment, sent it in for testing and .... 3.4% lawsone!

It smells different from other hennas (rich, spicy aroma).  It mixes different (it's THIRSTY and has a sweet tooth!).  It sure LOOKS different from other hennas!

(Yes, its henna, and nothing BUT henna)

I couldn't get a good pic, because it was overcast and stormy all week.  I put this on last Saturday, and now its Thursday.  Fading, but still glorious.  A1 on palm, B3 brown up the arm. The lighter areas on the palm were 2 minute applications.

Yes, it'll be ready to go out the door by Monday, I think.

Re: Please post your Thursday Sharing for May 13 into this ...

Lovely shares from everybody, as usual! CCJ, I'm seriously considering buying some of that new stuff as soon as June gets here and my funds are no longer depleted.

Well, I was hoping to have a new one to post today, but I got too busy getting lost in a book and forgot :-/ And it's too late to start now. I'd be awake far too late (like I'm not already, lol) waiting for it to dry. So I'll apply it tomorrow.

Odd thing about my shares from last week; the swirly on my finger faded in three days - barely got to its most mature stain - while the flower in my ankle is still going strong with just a hint of fading. Not sure what caused its demise, but the pattern I have planned for tomorrow is more elaborate and covers the entire palm. Hope it doesn't fade off in a couple days too. And I hope I can figure out a way of henna-ing my dominant hand with my non-dominant hand, just so I don't look all lopsided with one covered palm and one blank one!

I am so happy that I didn't order more henna this week.  I will hold out until that 3.4% Celebration is available, I can't wait to try it! (not that I have ever had any complaints with Jamila or Raj Monsoon).

I have three shares this week: 

roses:

a dragon for my son:

and my palm which I did last night (actually early this morning :)

I forgot to post shares last week, so there are several in my photostream that I never shared, feel free to poke around if you are interested.

Re: Please post your Thursday Sharing for May 13 into this ...

I have been out of the henna loop for a while, but I thought I would share some of the mirrors I have been doing lately. I have been doing a lot of custom made mirrors (no pics!) with designs for the kids at my son's school. Most of them have been for the girls, but I did do a couple of more masculine designs. All of them wanted their names in Arabic on them, also. That has kept me busy for a while.

I also have a few others in my stream, so check them out also, insh'Allah.

LOVE the new forum, by the way.

Thank you, Sarah! I love it too, but I am having a hard time selling it. Everyone says they love it, but nobody wants to buy. I will blame the economy. People are just not as willing to part with money (myself included!)

Hello, below is a link to the most recent designs my daughter and I have worked on. We are super newbies with only ourselves and our family to practice on. I thought it would be fun to share anyway.

The tribal-esque design on my son was sketched by him, outlined by me and my daughter helped fill it in. We did it last night and I really hope he keeps it taped all night!

There's my contribution, last one for a few weeks. Unfortunately, I will just have to be lopsided - I used the very last of my henna paste for this project, and low on funds for more supplies until June!

This one took me a couple hours. I started it at 11ish and wasn't done applying henna till nearly 1:30. This was probably my most difficult project yet. I hadn't realized how notoriously difficult it would be to roll a depleted henna cone down with one hand and a houseful of sleeping folks.

Sealed with three coats of lemon-sugar sealant - this one isn't going ANYWHERE. By the way, wood floors don't seem very fond of such sealant.. I had to scrub, HARD, to get the sticky off, because I was silly and forgot to seal over something to catch the excess spray.

I covered the sealed henna in unrolled cotton balls, and wrapped my arm in a scarf. No gloves that fit over the cotton, not enough tape to wrap it all, and no oven mitt in the house. So I have a use for those scarves I seldom use in Florida. Henna wraps! My hand vaguely resembles a hunter-green sock puppet with no mouth.

I was very lucky that Kidlet decided to sleep tonight instead of waking up annoyed after kicking his covers off the bed. Else I'd never have finished it.

My mix is getting better, it is still falling off faster than I would like but the stain I got this time was better.  I was missing the constant heat so I bought a little thermometer and made sure I had the right heat.  It was funny I was up checking my henna at 3am it made me giggle.  I did check on the kids too since I was up. 

Thanks,

Amy

So many nice shares this week!  I had some paste left over from an appointment yesterday, so decided to do a little something on my arm.  It just kept going and I had to thaw out another cone!
