Mad Skilz

I wanted to share the result of my hard work on my birthday at Fired Up! in Fort Walton Beach. Although I had a blast painting pottery with Eric & Kim, I have to say that I'm not too impressed with the staff. The first girl that was there had her boyfriend with her & although I didn't mind her, but the guy was very annoying & they spent the whole time talking/fighting. The other chick that came in later was just plain rude & wanted everyone to know how much she didn't want to be there, which the same could be said about the chick that I picked up my stuff from. But, there was a weird couple & two chicks that made for some very entertaining ease-dropping while we painted :o) Enjoy!!

Here is my AWESOME Honu, I used 2 different speckled paints for his shell & I was thrilled with how well his eyes turned out! ***it is a TURTLE, not a frog***

Here is a new bowl for Koa, even though it's not perfect, it was definitely a labor of least I know he could care less what he eats out of :o)

I'll continue to be absent from the blogging world until I take the NCLEX on July 10th. Please keep me in your prayers that day, I'll need all the strength, serenity, & help I can get!!

When I joined blogger I met an amazing Army wife named Jeannie. She has such a bright shining personality & has brought some much needed pick-me-ups by sending me these special cards...I swear she knew just how much I needed them!

You'll never guess that she just started making cards this year :o)Please check out her site & her amazing talent!!

I Love your painted pottery!! I have only done it once and LOVED it, I will have to take a pic of my giant teacup and saucer soon. I want to go back it was so fun!
