Hello! I'm posting early for my T Time post, this way I will be on time for Elizabeth and gang visits. This past week has been a good one, the kids are in school, routine is back and I'm feeling great. Have been organizing my craft space and cleaning around the house and even read a book in one day.
I'm sharing a fun outing I had with my mom and sisters this past Thursday. We went to a wine and brush gathering. Something way out of our comfort zones but so neat too, thanks to Heather hearing about this. At a local winery they have classes each Thursday where you get a glass of wine and do some painting for $30. When we first decided to go we thought we'd get to paint whatever we wanted, but they have it all planned ahead of time. Above is the picture of us before heading in, was quite cold that night. Aren't they cute!
I didn't get any pictures of the inside but was beautiful rooms and we were away from the customers there. Thankfully we had a back wall so no one could view our paintings, lol. There were quite a few women that come often and have quite a talent in painting. Was neat to see everyone do the same painting but each one looks different, all good!!!
By the way we got our drinks, I had lemonade and they had a glass of wine. See the pink cup to the right, this will count as my cup for Elizabeth's link up. We each had an easel and paints ready ahead of time for us. I've never used an easel before, I liked it.
Here is the end results, TREES, my favorite!! I didn't do well with them and gave up and now wish I had made more. We used very big paintbrushes which I'm not used too. By the way the teacher was in front of the room showing us how to paint, usually I sketch first then paint which she didn't have us do. The rest was a bridge and snow, all of ours came out different and the colors too. The girls and my mom didn't like theirs but I loved all of theirs!! They did so good considering they never paint or draw so I'm impressed!! Way to go ladies!!
Can't forget my cute mom!! I love hers, so pretty and wintry and TREES!! They all had trees!! We saw the paintings for the next month and they look amazing. Don't think we will be back but it was so fun to be together and try something new. If I could paint really well, I'd go back to do some of the new ones but for $30 I better stay at home and keep practicing.
It's time to head over and see what others are doing at Elizabeth's stop by and say hello. Have a great week everyone, thanks so much for your visits. I missed being here the last 2 weeks, glad to be back.
