Paint-Your-Own-Pottery places make me happy.
We went here today. I love being creative. I don't always have the best ideas, and the ones I have don't always come easily, but once they've arrived, implementing them is very relaxing to me. And after being glazed and fired, my finished product always looks better than I thought it would.
I did a coffee mug, which I'll probably bring to work to use as a container for pens and stuff, and hubby did a pie plate to match the fruit bowl he did a couple of years ago.
They're closed until the 11th for inventory and a ceramics convention, so if it's not hideous, I'll post a pic of my creation shortly thereafter.
