Our MOPs group plans Moms Night Out about once a month. I go every now and then but not all the time because I want the young moms to develop friendships among themselves. This month our MNO was painting a Door Hanger at Hartselle Parks and Recreation. We all had a great time and most of us want to go back and paint next month. Held on the first Thursday of each month, ladies register in advance for this class, Hartselle Parks and Rec provide the hangers and the paint. They even shellac it for you before you leave. They offer three different door hangers each month so you register in advance so they can cut out the needed shapes. At a cost of only $15 I think it is a bargain.
Here is our group. That is my Amelia on the left, she joined us for the evening.
Here is my almost finished project. I have something else to add so I will show it to you when I am finished. My friend, Stephanie, finished hers at home as well so I will post our finished projects next week.
There were some very serious painters there...later I found out they had used Pinterest to get their ideas!! I am squirreling that little nugget away!! There were prototypes at the painting class and you could copy their ideas or you could do whatever you wanted to so. We had a choice of a bunny, shamrock or cross. I had a cross so I chose a shamrock to add to my decorative stash.
This cross was my favorite. A mother daughter duo came up with the best ideas of the evening.( It will say PRAY on the bigger circles. Her daughter was doing the lettering when I asked to take a picture.) Both crosses were pinterest inspired they admitted!!
Here is the daughter's cross...
I wish I had gotten their names to credit them with their wonderful work.
And here is yet another idea, also Pinterest inspired.
And lastly, a shamrock that was out of the ordinary...
The Gaelic says Welcome, more or less. The artist told me the exact words but I forget!:)
And I think I will paint a turtle next month....
I chose to forgo the Bow! I am a minimalist in many ways! I think I may just have a new addiction!!
