Henna is a beautiful art form in many ways. Its been used for hundreds of years in many cultures for ceremonial purposes and celebrations ,primarily weddings. Henna Artist Jennifer Montgomery of CrazyFaces FacePainting and Body Art serving the Philadelphia PA area and Key West, FL, recently shared this amazing art of henna with ladies on the breast cancer journey whom are going through chemotherapy. It was Jennifer’s idea to share her art , especially during the holiday season to bring some smiles and spread joy to these special ladies. Jennifer had been thinking about a fulfilling way to offer her art as a gift to those who would appreciate it. She gets many requests for in kind donations from charity organizations but really loves to work with those that are meaningful to her. Jennifer saw henna crowns online and remembered an experience she had doing henna on a woman in Key West who had been undergoing chemotherapy treatments. When she came to Jennifer, she hadn’t taken her hat off since she had lost her hair, having the henna done was her first courageous step in doing so. Jennifer felt so honored to be applying the henna that she felt overcome with emotion but kept herself together to get the art beautifully finished. It was truly an amazing experience and thats how the idea to offer this to groups of ladies was born.
After reaching out to some contacts and Facebook friends, Jennifer was equipped with enough information to begin reaching out to see who would like to help make this happen. The quickest and most receptive response was from Rebekah Ulmer of Team CMDD in Downingtown PA. With her help and support, the event came together in less than 2 weeks!!! Jennifer also had the amazing artistic talent of Photographer Shannon Adelson of Adelson Media, Inc. Jennifer met Shannon at the Wilmington Flower Market in Wilmington Delaware several years ago when he captured her face painting designs. Jennifer felt this would be the perfect opportunity to work together.. and it was!
Everyone came together in a cozy location in Downingtown PA with 3 lovely ladies ready for henna! It was such a beautiful experience. Each woman had a unique story about her journey and experience with breast cancer. Thats one of the most rewarding parts of the job…. connecting with others. You never know what someone else is going through, we all have trials and tribulations in this life. I appreciate these one of kind opportunities to come together and share through art, stories and acceptance… from the bottom of my heart. Jennifer feels truly blessed with many opportunities to work with and reach people and realizes what gifts we are born with is what we should be pursuing. Live your best life:)
Jennifer would like to offer henna crowns on an ongoing basis in the Philadelphia PA area and also Key West,FL
