This is definitely a skill you have to practice to fully grasp. It isn’t as easy as it looks and it is very messy. I was covered in wet, mucky clay. I also had to start over many times and my creations definitely didn’t look perfect. You have to move your hands in a certain way, while […]
It seems this artistic activity has taken off with popularity within the past couple of years. We wanted to experience it for ourselves of course. So, off to Painting with a Twist we went! We loaded up our hand-painted glasses from a Groupon last year and set off on our starry adventure. I had a moment […]
By no coincidence did this clean-cut adventure appear on our list proceeding the recent completion of reading Fight Club. That does not mean I wasn’t taking notes while finishing my novel by Chuck Palahniuk. Prior to reading this book and having any idea that there was soap making involved, I read about the traditional way of making […]
Let me tell you all about Marolyn Bruniece Lewis.
We thought we completed this bucketlist item months ago but realized we didn’t “actually” make a mosaic. We basically cemented some stones together on a stepping stone kit we bought at Michael’s. We realized it wasn’t quite a mosaic: bits of glass or tile that create a picture. We decided to redo the activity later […]
Part 1: Crochet A Scarf, There are things in life that you pick up and never want to put back down. There are things that you spend minutes learning about in an attempt to spend hours partaking in. For me, one of those things happened to be a $4 skein of yarn and a $2 crochet […]
A new post – brought to you by? My lunch break and time to kill! I bought this journal when I was still in high school. Six years later, married, with four pets, and a lot of life changes come and gone, I noticed it still wasn’t even close to being complete. That’s when I […]
AKA your chance at one-of-a-kind fun art that exists with no two alike—or for the fellow girls like myself who fell in love with the heartfelt scene of Anne Hathaway, Mia Thermopolis as we know her, and her mother played by Caroline Goodall, throwing darts at a gigantic canvas with much more balloons and rain ponchos on.
Why we decided to randomly go out for a date on a Tuesday night, I still don’t know. It was a nice night but now I know why we decide to hold date nights until the weekend. We decided that we would go see a movie so we made a pit stop at the local […]
We made an abundant farm of origami to dwell on one of our empty shelves. Although I cannot lie by saying this was the least frustrating activity I’ve ever done, I can admit that I had fun learning how to manipulate paper creases to create three dimensional creatures. I have accomplished creating a three-year-old’s elephant, […]
Blowing glass has by far been one of my most favorite experiences. We managed to complete most of the process by ourselves and the rest with the aid of the professional guiding us. We repeatedly heated up the “glob” of glass. It’s a back and forth process because the temperatures have to be high enough to […]
Once upon a Groupon deal, we came across wine glass painting. I had looked at the same deal for over a year until we decided to go and actually do it. I asked myself why we would go out and do something we could do in our own home for less money. I’m really glad I […]
