Happy Holidays & Farewell from Carolina The Doodler Face Painting

As 2013 draws to an end, I think back at all the wonderful memories that we have made together and I cant help but get a huge silly smile on my face.

This year I have genuinely enjoyed being a part of so many special moments with the countless families that have invited me to bring the magic of face painting to their celebrations.Thanks to your amazing support I have had a very succesful year culminating with CarolinaThe Doodler Face Painting being voted as a Family Favorite by Orlando’s very own, Playground Magazine.

I will always value each and every one of you who have made Carolina The Doodler Face Painting possible. It is on that note of appreciation that I must share a bittersweet announcement with you. After twelve exciting years in Orlando and five very amazing years of owning my Face

Painting business, this will be my final newsletter for ‘Carolina The Doodler Face Painting’.

Your support & encouragement over the years has inspired me to continue expanding my artistic horizons and life-long passions for illustration and music! In the coming year, I will be working diligently on a series of illustrated children’s books as well as performing music with my family. I hope you all continue to follow and support me throughout this new venture in my creative path.

If you want to stay up to date with my journey, be sure to follow my blog at http://carolinathedoodlerart.virb.com/

On that note, I wish you all the happiest of holidays and once again thank you for inspiring me as much as you have.

Lots of love from your pal,

Carolina The Doodler

Carolina The Doodler

Carolina the doodler, brings smiles to the faces of children and families all over Florida. Her mobile business specializes in face painting and body art for parties and events, and is booked out for months in advance. Carolina choses Invoice2go to help manage her busy schedule.

A talented artist/illustrator Carolina always dreamt of owning her own business, from days spent freelancing throughout her teenage years, the idea for Carolina the doodler grew from a small stall at the farmers markets in Orlando to a mobile service for parties and events all over Florida.

“I love my job because as an artist/illustrator face painting allows me to do something I love for a living. I get to be in my element, working with families and putting smiles on the faces of everyone that I paint.”

While Carolina was able to do something that she loved, the paperwork and administration side of running a business began taking their toll.

“I felt overwhelmed when it came to keeping track of my booked events and the back and forth paperwork with my clients. As soon as I purchased this app, my life as a business owner improved tremendously.”

As a hands on mother who home schools her children, Carolina’s biggest challenge starting out was “learning how to run a business on my own while being efficient with my time”.

Invoice2go helped her simplify things, Carolina no longer feels overwhelmed, “I now feel confident when I email an invoice knowing that I have all my pending work organized, I keep track of everything from the moment I book a client to the moment they pay”

For many niche services having their own unique style is extremely important. Invoice2go is customizable, allowing businesses to take their own style and transform it into something even more professional as Carolina found; “the look and efficiency of each invoice is consistent with the level of quality that my clients have come to expect.”

It’s not just the look of the Invoices Carolina loves, it’s the ability to track her clients as well. “Invoice2go has given me peace of mind, knowing that my customer base is always organized and that I can keep track of every customer I book with efficiency and care.”

Face Painting by Carolina The Doodler

Provided by: Carolina The Doodler Face Painting

Putting Up a Vibrant Event

I have painted faces at everything from small birthday parties to large event productions, television appearances and book publications. My service is thorough, professional and consistent from the moment they contact me with an inquiry to the minute I finish face painting the guests at their events.

Carolina The Doodler Face Painting has been offering high-quality face painting for any type of event for many years. Her husband gave her the idea of putting up her own face painting booth in the market. When she tried it the first time, a lot of people loved her services, especially her artistry. Most of her clients expect excellent quality face painting paired with her friendly smile and great respect towards everyone who sits in her chair to get painted.

I feel like transitioning from the mainstream workforce, to being a full-time homeschooling mom and to then opening a successful small business on my own is by far the biggest and most exciting accomplishment of my lifetime thus far.

If you are looking for a face painter who is always up for quality and consistency in providing services, consider some artistic events with Carolina The Doodler Painting.
