Over the weekend, I was so happy to meet many of the Natural Parents Network volunteers, including Joni Rae from Tales of a Kitchen Witch. Joni Rae is a very talented henna artist, and she brought supplies to henna anyone who wanted it. Here are pictures of the artwork she created on my (then) 33 week belly. The last pictures are from my (today) 34 week belly – isn’t it gorgeous?!

Thank you for sharing your talent, Joni Rae!!

    Your belly is simply beautiful. Happy 34 weeks!! I’m so jealous of all you getting together. Still watches Kierans “mondter” video each night when we brush her teeth!

    OH MY! So beautiful!

  9. So awesome, isn’t it?! The nurse that listened to Spencer’s FHR yesterday loved mine. She even called it “natural!” Otherwise, I don’t have nearly enough opportunities to show it off!

    And I agree, I love that last pic of you!

    What a fantastic idea! Too bad I’m not having any more babies, or I’d do that next time.

  11. Wow! I wish I had thought of that when I was pregnant. I only had henna on my hands and feet. Looks gorgeous, Dionna.

    P.S.: I am working on that post and will email you when it is ready, so you can decide whether to post it or not :-) Very generous of you to suggest it, thanks.
