    Happy Birthday to Radio Lollipop Bristol!

    Last night I was face painting for the team at Radio Lollipop at the Children's Hospital in Bristol.

    They were celebrating their 25th Birthday and held a party in the Play Centre and on the wards, which was great fun and enjoyed by all.
    This is a picture of some of the lovely volunteers who were really getting into the party spirit!

    Testing, testing!

    As those of you who know me are painfully aware - I love my iPhone - and this is just a little test to see how well I can update this blog from my phone. :)

    Here is a picture of some henna that I did for a friend:

    And here's the bruised and battered Tori who bravely assists me when Cats Whiskers do wounds workshops for the Merlin Theatre in Frome!!

    If this works I'll have no excuses about updating the blog! Lol!!

    Workshop announcement - 10th October

    Cats Whiskers will be running a face painting and Special FX wounds workshop on Saturday 10th October 2009 between 10 - 4:30 at the Downend Folk House, Bristol. Price will be £65 for the day including a buffet lunch.

    We will be including face painting techniques, health & safety issues and covering designs for cats, butterflies, flower fairies and goblins as well as using the special effect wax to create gruesome wounds. Depending upon time available we may even get to do a Vampire to get you ready for Halloween!!

    If you are interested in joining us, please contact the office on 0117 370 6147 or e-mail Sharon on for a booking form.

    So much fun, so little time!

    A big thank you to everyone who booked us during the summer! The Cats Whiskers team have had SO much fun!! :) We've been to parties, festivals, summer camps, fun days and open days all over the area in Bristol, Bath and the South West. So, my apologies for taking so long to update the blog - but there has just been way too much fun going on for me to catch up until now.

    So, the children are back at school, the tree's are turning colour, nights are drawing in and we're really looking forward to Halloween!!

    But before we get carried away with the witches and vampires, here are some of the highlights of the summer:

    Private commission for a fancy dress party - quote from the client, "Thanks very much, it was a great success and was cool how realistic it looked. I'm sure that I'll be in touch again if another opportunity arises to be painted for some reason. It was great fun and just made the costume come alive."
