Henna Crowns for Beautiful Queens!
Yesterday was so super amazing!! I was going to wait and write a big blog about it but I’m still so excited that I had to share right away! So I had had this idea to do henna crowns for women in the chemotherapy process as a way to share my gift and help women feel beautiful, as we should:) So , with the power of intention and help from my awesome supportive circle of friends…. this became a reality in less than 2 weeks!!! A very generous soul, Rebekah , from Team CMMD REALLY helped me get this whole thing underway. She connected me to these amazing ladies and even offered her home for us to meet and create awesome body art on a dreary Sunday. My photographer friend and fellow creative Shannon Adelson joined in the process to capture images of the art as it was created and smiles were emerging. It was a beautiful experience for me and I hope the same for everyone else as well. It was nice to share what I have to offer with women that have gone through the trials and tribulations of cancer but still manage to smile. As I’ve said previously, I love what I do with my art, but mostly, I love connecting with people. This art gift I have has connected me to amazing souls and formed friendships with the best people ever! I’m so grateful for everything. I learn so much from people and families I interact with, its so special to hear firsthand about life experiences from people of all different backgrounds, ethnicities, geographic areas, etc. We can easily get stuck in our own worlds and forget to empathize with others and learn about their experience, this job allows me to connect with others. I just really love this, thank you so much to everyone who has helped me along the way- it truly is awesome. I hope to be doing the henna crowns ( or hands) once a month- if anyone in the Philadelphia area or the Florida Keys has interest in this, please contact Henna Artist Jennifer Montgomery 610.764.0853 www.jennifermontgomery.net
