DIY: Pottery Class at Olive's Mud Puddle

From start to finish, I loved every minute especially the time creating with Tony. 
The initial form and creating...

First firing in kiln...

Painting 3 layers of color...

After 2nd firing...

And a layer of cream was added to mine and I outlined some words on Tony's in sharpie which resulted in the final pieces... 

Keepsakes to last a lifetime:)

WHAT A DAY: March 21, 2015

After seeing the movie "Gunman," Tony lovingly agreed to do something artsy with me. So we headed to Olive's in Ft. Mill, SC to create some clay birdhouses. 
Starting from a house shaped slab, we worked out some great masterpieces. 

Tony made a Gamecock house; however I failed to capture the end result. He did a great job for a non-artsy person. His mom would be proud. 
I made a little love shack :) and turned it into a birdhouse vase. 

Then added elements of our relationship so far. Faith is a big part. 
Light is my 2015 word. 
Xo and flowers and love all arrived in my life this year too.
I love this man so much. BIG SMILES!!
Although I did tell him I would go paint the houses solo, since I could tell he was losing interest after the first hour when he was simply rolling out clay.
