I like to think of myself as a fairly crafty/artsy kinda' person. I could be totally wrong on that, but I like to think it anyway. I'm decent at drawing, I know the basics of crocheting, I have years and years worth of paper scrapbooks, and back when I had more time I used to make crafts a little more often. In college I took quite a few actual art classes for my graphic design minor, but it's been a long time since I'd picked up anything to really channel that inner-artistic side of me. So this weekend my sister-in-law, cousin-in-law and I hit up one of those fun, little paint night classes thanks to a fabulous deal on Living Social!
Since you can't paint on an empty stomach (that's totally a thing, I'm sure ;)) Kayla, Natalie and I grabbed some gourmet pizzas nearby first at A Tavola. Luckily we were able to get there before the dinner rush because it's a tiny, cozy little place. We ate more than our fair share of pizza before heading off to get our painting on.
I think ours turned out great and it is definitely something we'll do again! I'm always guilty of just doing what's easy or comfortable or convenient for girls nights or date nights. Same restaurants, same dinner/movie combo or whatnot... but it was fun to mix it up and do something new. I absolutely loved getting to be creative and will be proudly hanging my painting of the Cincinnati skyline up in our home :)
