Because It's Ladies Night

Last night I met up with six of my wife-friends for a girls night out.  And we did something we’d never in a million years talk our husbands into doing: we painted pottery.  I’ve never painted pottery besides what I did in art class back in high school but this was fun.  And stressful (for me at least).  But when in good company, time flies by and the good times roll.

I didn’t take the kahuna – I wanted to paint.  But Mel had the hunk and was flexing her muscles.  We seriously need to weigh this camera.  I’m waiting for the day Mel picks it up and starts doing arm curls with it.  Then we can all get tickets to her gun show.

It took me FOREVER to figure out what I was going to do.  I knew I wanted something that would be used so I chose a square platter and then free-hand my design.  I’m satisfied.  I can’t wait to see what it looks like after its fired.  Why do they make you wait a week?

I want to do this again.  Only next time I’m going to plan ahead and have a design already to go.  So I won’t pace the pottery walls in search of the perfect piece.  Or stand at the paint wall minutes at a time trying decide on colors.  Yep, definitely need a POA next time.

katie - You are really good! Especially for your first time there. And yes, painting pottery stresses me out like nothing else! My suggestion is to start working on Christmas stuff next time you go so that you can have it ready for the holiday season. Great pics by the way.
