I used to love doing crafts….ceramics, cake baking/decorating, floral decorating, etc….but, got away from it over the years. In late 2016, I discovered Brushstrokes Studios – a new shop where you can go paint ceramics in our neighboring town, Medina – and dabbled a little. THEN – in 2017, I dove right in…..and, not only with ceramics, I got into other crafty things! And…..I became one of the Three Amigos that love to do crafty things…..and that relationship has turned into a wonderful friendship….Kim, Jan, and Karie!
Here is a look back at all my craftiness in 2017:
We did Bead and Sip events:
I bought some memory wire bracelet kits to do at home, too — Love these!
We did stuff with plants and wreaths and even garlic with the gang at Navarras Farm Market and the Master Gardeners:
We did a Paint ‘n Sip at the Medina Library and The Vintage Apple Garden:
And, then there was the ceramics events (sometimes with wine, sometimes with food, always a BLAST) at Brushstokes Studio:
Oh…..and I painted some rocks to hide around town and I also hid some around the New England States on my trip:
But…..the crafty thing I’m most proud of, so far…..I am working on making a whole set of dishes and serving pieces at Brushstrokes…..a project that will continue on into 2018 (cause I’m not done, yet):
Chip and Dip Dish
One place setting – dinner plate, sandwich/dessert plate, and soup bowl – minus the square salad bowl – I have four complete place settings done, so far…..planning on either 6 or 8 settings – not sure, yet!
I added square salad bowls to the place settings, but looks like I didn’t take a “done” photo!
Large oval platter
Large serving bowl
Deviled egg platter
Dancing sugar and creamer
That’s it for now…..need to do 2-4 more place settings and some more serving pieces!
So….that’s the crafty side of my year!!! Can’t wait to see what creations the Three Amigos produce together in 2018!!! ❤
