Face Painting isn’t just for Kids

On October 4th I took part in the Friends of the Sanctuary‘s Nature and Wildlife Day at the Upper Canada Migratory Bird Sanctuary located between Morrisburg and Ingleside. It was my first time as this event and was pleased with my results.

By the end of the day, I sold 3 copies of A Shadow in the Past, 2 copies of The Consequences Collection and 1 copy of Tim’s Magic Christmas. I also donated a copy of Tim to the silent auction which was to raise money for the sanctuary.

For $3.00 you could get your face painted and the money raised went to the sanctuary. It was mostly children having it done, but my husband is an overgrown kid at heart so he had it done, too. He was forewarned that if he did, he would be getting his picture taken and it would be posted on my blog… well guess what? Yup, he did.

What do you think? Would you get your face painted?

  1. Yes! Yes, I would get my face painted! I love that your hubby is a big kid. Mine is like that as well. Certainly makes life more fun, doesn’t it?

    I love reading about your book events and book store signings/readings. I can’t wait to be doing all of that. Hopefully, next year! 😀

  2. Thanks for stopping by Shawn! Glad you’re a big kid at heart, too. I believe that although growing old is mandatory – growing up is optional and I don’t plan on doing that any time soon. 🙂
