Last week, while Ryan was finishing up finals, Matthew and I decided to give him some quiet time by taking a little walk downtown in Lexington, which included a trip into Creative Kiln, a new Paint-Your-Own-Pottery shop that recently opened in Lexington. I love painting pottery, especially in a place that will just clean up my mess for me when I'm done! Here are our masterpieces, inspired by Ed Emberley's FunPrint Drawing Book
I think we'll use these as coasters. I have to say, I like Matthew's thumbprint art (the one with the frogs) much better than my own. Matthew isn't big into arts and crafts projects yet (he'd rather sit and play with cars and trucks), but I think he had fun doing this. He was even OK with getting his hands dirty, which he's not usually really into.
