DIY Day!


DIY Day @ ASPTL

Kimba over at "A Soft Place to Land" is the host of this weekly meme. She says,

"If you're new here, every Tuesday we get together to share our newest DIY projects. I'm really flexible about what constitutes a DIY project. A furniture makeover, an outdoor project, an indoor project, some new artwork...heck, even a great recipe could qualify as DIY, right?"

Just this past weekend, our family went on a little getaway to a place called "Center Parcs". You can do loads of activities there including swimming in a huge indoor waterpark, bike riding, outdoor activities like rock climbing, walking on high ropes, etc. They have all kinds of things that you can sign up to do, all for a fee of course, and one thing I signed up for was pottery painting. The place was called "Flying Saucers". I took 3 of the children with me and we had a blast. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

Here is what we made...

Grant's colorful reindeer. Isn't it sweet?


Melanie's beautiful candy dish,



Braaten made this gorgeous pitcher with a winter scene.


And I even got to be creative and made this plate.

God is so very good, isn't He?

He blesses us in great ways and in small and everything in between. It's the little things that make my heart sing like painting a platter with my precious children.

Carol,

I love everything that all of you created. So much love is poured into each creation much like the love that God pours into creating each of us.

What a fun place to visit and love all the pottery! A few years ago I took the boys to one of those places for Christmas presents for grandparents!
