Painted Pottery Date!!!

...Sunday afternoon I headed over to Baked Goods off Gravois. I met Angie and Nick there. She had decided to make reindeer plates with Nick's hands and feet to give to the grandmas for Christmas. We were excited to get started...a little too excited-we put Nick's handprints in the wrong spot!!! Never fear, we "erased" it and got it right. Here's Ang drying the paint so we could scrap it off....ugh, nails on a chalk board sound!
Nick, as always, was such a good boy! I held him most of the time and he just drank his bottle and watched his momma doing all the work...typical guy!
Ang's putting on the final touches! It's upside down and no eyes yet but you get the idea. I think it turned out great!!!
It was a fun afternoon and a good time to hang out with some good friends. Now we have to patiently wait 10 days to see the final product!!!

I haven't painted pottery in ages - that's a good idea. Did she do the border herself?? It looks awesome!

I've been trying to convince Sexy Nerd to go paint pottery with me forever! If they ever have a Groupon or Living Social deal, he's going to be out of luck ;)

This is such a cute idea! I love it! Did she free hand those holly leaves/vining? So pretty!
