Madison Mud: Intermediate Session

For our second session at Madison Mud, we learned how to make sexy vases, nesting bowls, and lidded vessels. They switched up the teacher schedule for this round so we had Anthony, who is an amazing potter and a great teacher.
It was just as fun as the first session. The only real difference was that we now had to start paying firing fees. It forced us to be a bit more selective about our pieces.

DIY Watermelon Painted Dress

I was inspired by the M.i.h. Jeans watermelon-printed clothes from a few seasons ago and I decided to turn a plain white dress into a fun printed dress.

Also, this is a nice DIY in general because you can use the same techniques to transform something kind of dull into something more fun. I used acrylic paint (no need to go out and buy fabric paint) with some mixing medium and water and let it dry completely and left it alone for a few days and then I heat set it in the dryer and it's been great. I love it and I have a list of clothes I'm thinking about decorating.
You'll need:
an item of clothing to decorate
cardboard or newsprint
acrylic paint
paintbrushes
water

96 Hours in the Keys: Day 4 & Video Diary

May the fourth be with you!

This is my last post for our Florida trip. On our final three-quarters day in Florida, we woke up bright and early so we could head downstairs to enjoy the spa for a few hours.
It was another gorgeous day.
