Happy Little Trees

I channeled my inner Bob Ross today.  A couple friends and I decided to go to a Paint and Sip studio to try our hand at painting.

I have always been interested in crafts and other forms of creativity.  I love to create, make and do.  My Pinterest boards are full of ideas and things that would love to make for the house or cook for dinner.  There are many DIY items that make me feel that I can my Martha Stewart.

Anyway, we decided to attend a class at the RSVPaint studio in Springfield and they did not disappoint. They created an atmosphere of fun, creativity, and capability.  They gave us a canvas with an easel. It made me feel like I was getting ready to create a masterpiece.  To my right, I found my palette of paints and a variety of brushes. To my left, my jar for cleaning my brushes.

I stepped up to my easel where they had an apron ready for my use.  After I put the apron on, they brought a drink for me to enjoy during my painting time.  The instructor began by giving us simple and direct steps as to how to create the painting that we chose to create. However, she gave us the freedom to use our own colors and we were able to give it our own touch of personality.

We loved it so much that we are planning a second trip already. Next time, I’m hoping that we have more friends attend with us.  Remember, the more the merrier!
