Last night we went to the local craft market for another cultural first: henna hands. My neighbors have designs on their hands all the time for various festivals and celebrations. I found a great pattern for the story of when Jesus calms the sea. I love the way it turned out! (She added a peacock to the design for good measure:)
Jude was very intrigued by the process and wanted a little paint of his own. Sorry, bud, only for gals!
I think it will last around 2-3 weeks before fading completely. Hard to believe it's taken me this long to dive into the henna culture. I have a feeling it will be a fairly frequent stop at the market from now on though.
Happy henna hands!
