Celebrate Day 1: "Z Day!" My Personal 365 Day Creative Challenge!


We at Paintertainment are in the business of celebration.  Events, parties, and celebrations of all kinds are where you'll find us working our magic, whether it's with face painting, balloon twisting, henna body art or glitter tattoos!  I am also a firm believer that one big component of happiness is always having something to look forward to and celebrate.

It seems that these days just about everything under the sun has it's own dedicated day of awareness or celebration. For a long time now I've been wanting to challenge myself to post a painting every day that was inspired by whatever "day of the year" it happened to be.  So I figured, what better place to start than at the beginning...January 1st?!

While I can't see into the future enough to guarantee that I'll have a post all 365 days of 2017, I am certainly going to do my darndest to try, and you all have my permission to hold me accountable!  After all, what good are awesome ideas if you never actually TRY them?! So let's kick off a year of celebration through face and body paint!!

January 1, 2017 - Day 1 - "Z" Day!
Having a date celebrating a letter of the alphabet made me think of one of my favorite childhood books, "Dr. Seuss's ABC's!"  I have so much of this book memorized and loved reading it to my boys as well.  (You'll see Toby's face in today's painting!)  "Big Z little z, what begins with z?  I do. I'm a Zizzer Zazzer Zuzz, as you can plainly see!"

I hope to "Z" you tomorrow for day 2! :-) Happy painting!!

Hi Gretchen, How can I get your blog posts automatically? I find them on Facebook, but I would like to get the directly to my inbox.

Hi Diane! So, I THINK I've figured out how to add this function to my blog today...if you look in the upper right-ish corner of the page, there should now be a line that says "Subscribe!" Just under that, click on "Subscribe to Paintertainment by Email," enter your email and the code to prove you're not a robot, and that should do it! Let me know if it doesn't may be my guinea pig! ;-) THANKS for asking!!

OH, and it looks like you'll get an email from feedburner asking you to confirm your subscription. It should work once you do that! ;-)
