Let’s see. How shall I describe December? A few words that come to mind are crazy busy, borderline ridiculous, and exhausting. I’m happy to report my Christmas break started with a pleasant surprise from my boss. She arranged for her direct reports to partake in an intimate, creative activity: pottery painting at Cafe Monet. The evening included wine, hors d’oeuvres, pleasant conversation, and painting. What a fabulous idea!
This was my first time doing pottery painting and it was just what I needed. I enjoyed spending time with our small group of five. A few hours later, I was relaxed and the stress edge had subsided.
I’m very pleased with my product. Once we were done, we left our creations with the Cafe Monet staff so they could finish the masterpieces with what I call a “glaze”. It took them about a week. I must have had spring on my mind due to the colors I selected, but the “glaze” (picture to the left) made the colors a little darker. I love it!
I will definitely be doing more of this activity in 2019.
