My creative side

 I really don't think of myself as a creative person.  This summer I got ambitious and made gifts for my dad and mother-in-law.  I went to a paint-your-own pottery place.  It was fun, but it took me a long time to finish them.  I think I went in 4 or 5 times to complete them.  I wanted them to be a little personalized, so I had the boys paint their fingerprints (butterflies and ants) .  They turned out really cute.  The hardest part was definitely the words inside the bowl.  I hand-painted them and had to do it 3 times so it would show up properly.  I am definitely pleased with the final results.
