Last night Leah, Leigh Ann, Margaret, & myself went to Sippitydoodle in downtown McKinney as a pre-birthday celebration for Leigh Ann, who turns 31 Monday. Think paint-by-numbers, except not. :-) You just bring yourself, your favorite beverage/snacks, and some friends and "Drink in the Arts". An artist has already drawn a picture on the canvas for you and you paint the picture while an artist guides you step by step on what to do, but you are able to add your own flair to your creation. They furnish all the art supplies and you just create! Last night's artwork was 'Fireflies in a Jar' (professional artist's photo above). It cost us $30 (regularly $35 for 2 hours, but we had an email coupon) and it was lots of fun. I would recommend it to anyone who wants something different and creative to do. We are already talking about going back in September or October to work on some fall pieces. If you attend 6 sessions you get your 6th one free. It was fun to see how different our paintings turned out, even though we were working on the same thing. It was a great way to explore our creative side!
