Wine and Canvas Party!

Last Friday, my friends Sarah and Jessica had a wine and canvas party to celebrate their birthdays because they're only a few days apart. I have seen bloggers I follow post about doing this and it seems like such a great time. I used to go to one of those paint your own pottery places in grad school and loved it so I have been wanting to do one of these for ages. After all, there is wine involved! :-)

After hanging out for a bit drinking wine and eating yummy food, we got down to work. Jessica's husband was our instructor and he was great. Super patient with several of us that aren't so artsy!

We were painting a flower, which started out like this:


His sample piece looked so awesome, and I knew there was no way I was going to be able to do something like that because I can't draw a straight line. Here's how it looked partially completed:

And finished!

I really enjoyed doing this. It was great to get together with friends and have a girls night. We always get together with our kids and never get a chance to just hang out because we're always chasing after them!

Alan got me a gift certificate to the local paint your own pottery place in town last Christmas...I think I will be using it soon!

Before you go, meet Tracy, who blogs over at Yea, I know I'm Short

She's a 39 year old (but mentally 16!) married mom of two beautiful girls, ages five and one and a half that went through years of infertility treatments and discovered she was pregnant with her youngest the old fashioned way.
She's lived in Atlanta for the last five years, but is originally from Buffalo, NY, where it's "POP" not soda (Amen!) and they have the best pizza and wings around. 
She decided to make a change one day and has lost 72 pounds since 2012, the old fashioned way.

  1. Wine and canvas is always fun together! I used to sit outside in the spring and paint. My teenagers and the other half used up all my paint brushes. It's time for new ones.

  6. How fun, I just went to a BYOB painting class, but it would be a ton of fun to do one with my ladies in one of our kitchens!

  7. I love the idea! There's a place in my region called "the tipsy canvas" it's basically what you all did except with a larger group. Seems like a ton of fun, your canvas came out great by the way!
