Just before Christmas, some wonderful friends from school ( a mother and daughter) took Blaze and I to Do Art, which is a do-it-yourselve pottery painting shop. This was the first time Blaze and I had ever been there and I'm very glad we went with people who knew what they were doing.
There were so many different pieces of pottery to choose from, that it took awhile for Blaze to choose what he wanted to paint, but he finally chose a tea cup and saucer, while I picked a coffee mug.
The beautiful, peace and Beatles inspired mug that my friend worked on while her daughter went for the darker, goth skull:
Blaze painted a picture of our teenage friend and himself playing on swings, since it is something they both enjoy doing at school.
My cup was not quite as creative. I had been admiring the way a speckled cup looked that they were using for washing dirty paint brushes, and decided to try my hand at that.
It was such a nice surprise to walk into the school office today and find a gift bag with our finished cups waiting in my mailbox.
Thank you so much, V. and R.!!!
