Girl's Night Out.....Painting Pottery

So it is that time of the month again...... Girl's Night Out!!!! My favorite time of the month is when some girls from work get together and do something fun. This paticular night out I was really excited about. Leisa came up with a great idea for us to go to a place called All Fired Up and paint our own pottery. I have been looking online for a few months on a plate for Ava to use on her birthdays. I hadn't found just what I was looking for so when Leisa suggested going to a place where we could paint our own pottery I knew that would be perfect for me to make Ava's birthday plate. I wanted something special that she will be able to eat off of for her birthdays every year. There were so many pieces to choose from that it was really hard to decide but finally I found just the plate that I had imagined. It was very stressful at first picking out colors and deciding how I was going to design the plate because I knew it would be something that I will be seeing for years to come. After a lot of thought I started to paint it. I am not that creative or artistic so i started off really nervous but after awhile I got the hang of it and I am really excited about how it turned out. I won't get to see the final product until Wednesday because they have to be fired.

Ta da!! The colors will be darker once fired but you get the idea!!

I don't know what we are doing next month for Girl's Night Out but this night is going to be hard to beat!!! We had so much fun we are thinking about going back next week to paint something else.
