The place was really cute and had every kind of pottery you could think of! I chose a star of course because they are my fav. Obviously painting a star isn’t really a soul searching activity, but I it was so relaxing and therapeutic. I had a lot of quiet time to think and while I was painting my star I reminisced about some of my funny crafty moments as a kid. When I lived with my grandparents and my mom in Waco, I liked to decorate each Christmas with homemade paintings and ornaments. My favorite thing to decorate with was glitter! (I still love glitter) I used glitter in every single picture I made, but it just wasn’t enough….so I sprinkled gold glitter all over the house. ALL. OVER. THE. HOUSE. In the carpet, on the furniture, on the piano keys and probably even in my hair. I was so proud and thought it looked so beautiful and festive, boy was I wrong. My aunt (who was a complete clean freak) was there and completely flipped out on me! Luckily this incident didn’t deter me from using glitter in the future. I don't care how old I get, I will always love glitter. Unfortunately they didn't have any to use today, but if I need some, I am pretty I could still find specs of gold glitter in random places at my grandparent's house!
It took me over two hours to finish my star because I wanted it to be perfect. I used the brightest colors they had and adorned it with the number 30 to commemorate my upcoming birthday. I realized that I am an instant gratification type of person....I have to wait a whole week for them to fire and glaze it!?! Bummer! I can’t wait to see it when it is done and all the bight colors show through. I will post an updated pic when I get it!
I am really looking forward to my cooking class tomorrow. Hopefully I can learn some new skills because I am seriously lacking in that department!
