This was the first annual Indigo Art & Poetry Fest so we weren’t sure what to expect, but I must tell you that it was amazing. Indigo Idaho did a wonderful job putting on this event to help bring awareness and end the stigma associated with mental illness. Our booth was in view of the stage, so although my head was down staring at henna tattoos all day, I was able to hear the speakers and the music that took place throughout the day. The people who visited our booth were also able to relax and watch the show.

The temperature was perfect. Though I did soak my shoes in the morning while setting up because of the dew on the grass and had to call my hubby to drop off another pair of shoes for me. It did warm up quick! Even with a bit of wind in the afternoon, it was a very pleasant day.
I met some amazing people! This is one of my favorite parts of having booths. Meeting the other vendors, and meeting the people that come to get henna.
I met Jessica on Saturday, she told me to do whatever I wanted to do on her hand. She makes jewelry that she sells in her Etsy shop, Grateful Creationz. She was super sweet.
I also met another vendor running a crochet boutique, Rustynickels, who came to my booth and told me the same thing – do whatever you want!
There were so many people wanting henna tattoos that I must admit, I almost ran out of henna paste! At the end of the day all of my cones were spent. At one point I had to consolidate some of the almost-empty cones to create a full new one.
I am looking forward to next year!
Roots Boise even stopped by and took some pictures of the festival. You can see more from their gallery on their website.
Kingdom Henna is located in Boise, ID and offers all natural henna tattoos for every occasion.
