Talk about unexpected fun! I took the kids to a pottery studio the other day. They carry tones of unpainted pottery (like banks, dishware and such), You pick a piece and you paint it to your liking. The put it in a kiln (it’s like a big oven) and its glazed, shiny and ready for use.

 

Elyssa choose a hello kitty bank, and I a turtle; Sheila’s feeling lonely back in Texas I thought I’d send her something to cheer her up (she likes turtles).

I actually enjoyed it. The baby was content sitting in her car seat playing with toys. We were there about an hour or so.

The place I went to isn’t a chain, but I believe there are all kinds of these little studios around the country.

What’s even better, At night, they have a Bring Your Own Booze policy for adults. I’m not a heavy drinker by any means, but the idea of sipping wine with other adults and painting pottery, sounds like a great refresher for those looking to restore sanity by engaging with other adult (who are probably parents  as well).

Its gonna take two weeks till we can pick up our pieces, and it was a little pricy, but not too bad . But it’s all worth it. The studio also does jewelry making , glass fusing, and mosaics.  I’ve even convinced Jeff to come with me one night! The possibilities are endless here, and you don’t need any talent to do it. I’m all about different and this is definetly it.
