Spend some creative time with your kids...and support local businesses!

I don't know if it's because I have my own small business (I sell Thirty-One) and see it talked about in the Facebook groups or if it's just a growing desire in our country, but it feels good to support local businesses. It's even nicer, in my world, if that local business is an art studio!

This weekend I spent some quality time with my daughters at a local painting studio called Paint Your Art Out. It was a complete surprise that I had had planned for my girls for weeks. They, like me, love arts and crafts, and they had been asking me if they could go paint. So, when I saw the Family Painting Session on the December calendar and that it was a class to paint nutcrackers, I wasted no time in signing us up! Going to the Nutcracker with my Mom and girls has become an annual tradition. So, the nutcracker was a most appropriate painting subject for us! Check out some pics of our outing.

I can't say enough wonderful things about the staff and the classes at Paint Your Art Out. The teachers are amazing artists that encourage and teach and have fun doing it! I thoroughly enjoy myself every time I go. Here is their link to their studio:

Art studios like Paint Your Art Out have become popular. I see my friends on Facebook in different states going to paint and then proudly posting their creations. It makes me happy to see people giving it a go at being artistic. I love that these studios take the intimidation out of art and try to empower people to create! I share that passion as a purpose for my blog.

These classes are not only great family outings, but they also make fun date nights or girls' night outs. I encourage you to get out there and go paint something fabulous, and have fun!!!! You may be surprised at how much you like it and how good you are at it!

Thanks for stopping by!
Take time to "Prettify Your Life"!!!
