The Accidental Artist

I'm always looking for new things to do in Greenville... I get kinda bored just staying in the house all of the time.  I'd heard a while ago that a place called The Accidental Artist had opened.  It is a Paint Your Own Pottery studio.  One day while I was keeping the munchkin, we decided to check it out, because it was something that we could both do together.  I LOVE it!  I've been back several times since that first day to complete the projects that I started.

The Staff is super friendly and so willing to help you with whatever techniques you want to use.  I love that anyone can go in and create a masterpiece.  No matter your skill level, there is something for you to paint, and if you need help or ideas, you can get it.  People in Greenville seem to be catching on, because every time I've been in there, the place has been packed.  Last Friday night, they had "Paint Til You Drop".  They stayed open until Midnight  and you could paint until your heart was content.  There were actually people sitting on the floor waiting for a table to work at! 

Here are my first two pieces:
Piggy Bank... for Parker
Customized it with his name... other side has Birthday and Stats

My sister wanted a Piggy Bank for Parker... but she wanted one that actually looked like a Pig and kinda matched his room... I decided to go ahead and paint one for him so that it could be personalized.  I love the way it turned out!

Picture Frame

I saw this saying on another picture frame online and decided that Parker needed one.  This was a really simple project... I got to blow paint bubbles... it was a lot of fun!

So, if you're looking for something fun to do in Greenville, with kids or other adults... check out the Accidental Artist!  They do birthday parties and showers too!

REWIND: June 2010

Coming off of a whirlwind May, I was ready for things to slow down a little bit. I needed a little bit of a break.  The first couple weeks of June were just that.  The month started out slow, but once things started happening, the month was over before I knew it.  June 2010 will definitely be a month I will never forget.

  • I started back to work, but on a very limited basis.  With summer camps coming in, there is a little bit of work for me, but it is still not enough.  I'm currently at a very frustrated point with my job, and I keep hoping for a change. 
  • I got my hopes up to visit a friend, but for some reason, that I'm still not sure of, that didn't work out.  I hate losing touch with people.  I always wonder what would be different if things didn't change. 
  • I started babysitting my little cousin while she is out of school.  I'm juggling my work time around keeping her, but it is a little extra money coming in. 
  • The BEST thing that happened in June is that I became an Aunt!  My nephew made his arrival Monday, June 28 at 6:46pm.  He is too cute!  He is such a loved little boy already! 

 Can't believe that half of the year is over!
