Several months ago I went with the Eating Cardinals to make pottery for a girl’s night out. We went to Wired & Fired in Atlanta. We had a great time and each of us made a work of art. I wanted a good dip bowl for some hummus and fresh vegetables. You can see the fuzzy inspiration photo from my phone.
We had a great evening laughing, chatting, and painting. Here is my finished bowl with some great treats for our game night – candied pecans.
Last night we played Star Wars Risk (and played and played and played — that game lasts forever!)
Olivia finally won the game last night but I think we all won because we had some elegant treats in my new bowl.
A menacing attack from Davis!
