When Did You Stop Playing? [Interview with Gem Face NY designer Michelle Carver]

When was the last time you took some time to play? If you think about your childhood do you have fond memories of birthday parties? Perhaps you have photos your elders saved for you.

I remember seeing photos from my 1st birthday kiddie party at my parents home.  There was ice cream smeared into my mothers rugs, funny hats and a scary awkward looking clown.

Something is crawling on you !

SYMACMU: Shut Ya Mouth and Call Me Ugly is a community of individuals and a commitment to the discovery of identity.  What advice do you have for someone who is “finding themselves? ”

MC: I am willing to teach others and welcome new artists, young and old to explore the things that make them passionate.  Listen to your instincts and remember you can never fail if you keep your dreams alive and nourish your mind, body and soul.  Dare yourself to jump into a new endeavor!

SYMACMU: What is your differentiator from the competition?

MC: My face paints are all FDA approved and washable with soap and water.  I also recently added “NEW” Glitter Tattoo Art.  Glitter tattoo is a pretty shimmery tattoo that can last 3-10 days.  They are perfect for party & excellent in summer since they stay on even in water.  I started balloon twisting which is a great addition to any childs party.
