Where do heroes come from?


Through the course on starting this business I have come across a lot of amazing people, and I mean amazing! I pray that I can meet even more along the journey this career choice will take me on. A little over a year ago I was reunited with a dear friend from high school that I always looked up to back then, and still do, Kelli Neese Russell. Kelli is one of those amazing people who do amazing things for so many!!! Through her I have been blessed and will forever be in debt to her and her kindness.

This story began when Kelli asked me to facepaint for the St. Baldrick’s Event at Fibber’s in March of 2012. I had just started my business a little over six months before hand when she so graciously trusted me with her baby.  I brought my crew made up of my most trusted employees Tara Womble and Shawn Best both being my siblings. We painted on cheeks, foreheads, arms, backs, hands, and much more! We watched as all of those amazing and brave people shaved their heads to raise money for others in need. As we watched I remember my brother mentioning he wanted to shave his head after he saw a lovely lady shave hers especially after having scars that would be revealed. Not an easy thing for a woman, much less a woman with scars to show her story.

What you don’t know is that my brother, Christopher Shawn Best aka Shawn, was in a car accident in 1992. He was thrown out of the back windshield and a piece of metal went through his cheek, through his nasal glands, and entered his brain. He has a plate in his head and over the last 21 years has multiple brain surgeries, infections, scars, lost his ability to smell, and not to mention the scare of not seeing another day. As I am writing this he is scheduled for another surgery on March 20th. He is making a huge leap to shave his head this year despite his scars and wounds that go beyond physical so I am asking for any donation that you can give to help an amazing lady right here in our home town, Wilmington NC, who has been diagnosed with cancer. The more money we can raise the more help we can provide!

HELP HIM HELP HER………Where do heroes come from?

Gearing up and JUMPING OUT!!


I have stepped out on a limb and following my dreams 100%!! I have resigned from my position at my full time job and am now focusing on P3 completely. This is a bit of a scary adventure, but with faith ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. After giving my resignation at work I received two brides wanting my services, and am happy to say….CONTRACTS ARE SIGNED!

I write this on my blog for NO purpose other than to encourage everyone to believe in themselves, trust yourself, and always strive to be better!! I have wanted to start this business for over 5 years and finally got the courage last August to just JUMP!! I had a business partner who wished to go her on way in January and I could have very easily given up but that never was an option. I kept things rolling and now I am so happy with everything God has given to me. I am grateful and blessed. My goal is that every couple I help get married, every birthday party I plan and every face I paint may light up with joy from the outcome and walk away my friend!

THIS IS MY DREAM!!!

“If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”
