After digitally capturing each day initially in 2010 my Mom (Sis) and I (Lisa) decided to challenge ourselves again in 2011. We went with a different approach; captured whatever enticed us on a weekly basis. So here we are in 2012 deciding now just to keep to the daily challenge of a picture a day from now till whenever we get sick of doing it! There might get some journaling along with our digital images. Whatever we decide, we'll try to be entertaining. Sarcasm is guaranteed!

Week 8 - Lisa
Discovered an outlet for the creative juices at a place called Art & Soul out in Sandy Springs this week. Spent three hours painting at this small studio. Our pieces of art, which indeed will be in the eye of the beholder, will be ready next weekend. A good deal in our minds; included in price is the piece of pottery, as much paint as you need, the facility to do your work, the firing in kiln and the coating to make it microwave and dishwasher safe. You may stay as long as you like and bring food and drinks if you want. There were lots of more expensive and larger pieces of pottery we'd like to challenge ourselves with IF the small pieces we did come out half way decent. Definitely not as easy as it looks. As the chalky paint does not reflect the colors of the finished tiles. So you have to use your imagination as you are painting. Mom created a flower pot and I chose colors to reflect the teal blue, light green and browns to go in my future bedroom for a possible vase, toothbrush or junk holder. My mom can draw, I cannot! I'm pretty sure this is a place we'll return too.
