Happy Everything!!!

Months ago, my sweet friend Shannon started talking about this "Happy Everything" plate that was just too precious! When I looked it up online, I loved it too...but the price blew me away!!! I quickly told her that we could make our own...and maybe tone down the SO BRIGHT polka dots a little bit. So, for Shannon's bday, I got her a gift card to a fun little pottery painting place in downtown McKinney and said that we'd make it a date to go and paint our plates together! After weeks of trying to get a date on the calendar, we went on Friday and had so much fun painting our own "Happy Everything" plate. We get to pick them up this week and can't wait to see how they turn out! ...Even if they're ugly, I loved the time I spent chatting and painting with my dear and precious friend!

{Here is the cute one from the site...I'll post a picture of ours when we pick them up!}

Love your blog! I just sent my sis-in-law, yesterday to paint her own because she said they were too expensive! Can't wait to see pics of the finished product!

Ooh - can't wait to see the plates!!! What a fun idea! I bet y'alls looks better than having it made anyway!

You're so crafty - I'm jealous! I love the pics of Quinn using his spoon. Mark has been practicing lots lately too, it's good to know we're not behind! This will not win me a mother of the year award- but I let him eat pudding to intice him to use it, and it's pretty thick, so it stays on the spoon!
