Da Plate! Da Plate!

Here's the plate that I painted last Thursday on Bunco Night...

It kinda looks like "cookies" is spelled out in chocolate syrup. Yum!!

The place we went too was much better than some of the other paint-it-yourself places. This place charged a flat sitting fee ($7), plus the price of the pottery. Then you got free reign over the colors. You could use as many as you wanted. You could even use as much of the paint as you wanted. We've gone to some places where TC painted a coffee mug all one color and halfway through, he ran out of paint. We had to pay 25 cents extra for another dollop of paint! So, now I'm thinking of all the things I could do. Maybe a cute plate for Santa cookies, or a plate for each child's birthday, or a birthday tile to put in our kitchen table on everyone's birthday (the table has 8x8 tiles that can be removed).

Now, I'm thinking these cookies (or the version by Paula Dean...I just love her!) will be the perfect first confection for my plate. I just need to find a party to go to...
