Our Very Own Dandi Award Winner!
We are so excited and proud of Mom's Time Out member Karen Mercer, owner of FairyDust Faces! She recently received a Dandi Award which honors the entrepreneurial spirit, dedication, achievement and community involvement of small business owners.
When asked about her experience, she said:
"Here at FairyDust Faces we are so pleased that E2E Connect has recognized the hard work that went into bringing our business ideas into existence. From our flagship business FairyDust Faces to our teen themed airbrush business (www.TattooShooter.com) direct to consumer body art supply outlet (FacePaintShop.com) and body painting brand (www.SparkBodyPainting.com) we are thrilled to be part of the greater Tallahassee community.
We are committed to the success of art instruction in public schools and to the success of local youth organizations. Families can find us working with LaFayette arts center, Lemoyne art center, 621 Gallery, parks and rec centers, Oasis center for girls, as well as the library system and local festivals. We work diligently to raise the standards of all body artists in Tallahassee through our nonprofit face painting guild as well as bring the joy of ‘transformation through face paint’ to at-risk and in-need populations all year long."
Congratulations, Karen! We are so happy that your hard work and dedication to the community was recognized with this award!
