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:
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!
