practice makes better
Thank goodness for the lovely friends who let me henna them when I first became enchanted by henna. Once I discovered an online community willing to share their knowledge -- and after attending conferences on both coasts... I feel I have come so far. And there is still so much to explore.
Practicing and drills are not a lot of fun; but they are satisfying because the practice makes better.
