Last night was date night! We went to Color Me Mine to embark on a ceramics adventure! I never took Home Economics in school, and I've never painted a day in my life - finger paints excluded. But let me just say, it was a hoot!
I never knew that doing a "craft project" could be so relaxing! I've always done crafts in the past, scrapbooking, knitting, crocheting. But I usually am making something as a gift, and am up against a deadline so it ends up being more stressful than needs be.
The girls at the shop were overly friendly (mostly to my hot side kick, they didn't pay much attention to me), good music played all night, and in between small bits of conversation I found myself loving every minute.
I chose to paint a mug, mostly out of practicality. I will use a mug frequently. I will not use a bobble head baseball player figurine. All of the colors look pastel for now, but once it's been glazed and fired in the kiln, my true "artistic" abilities will shine through.
