Big thanks to my photographer and platemaker extraordinaire, Carly of Carly in the Capital
Carly and I checked out a local paint-your-own-pottery studio, where I painted an adorable monster bank to look like Mike Wazowski's chubbier blue cousin, while Carly created a plate for her mother's dining pleasure. I think the bank turned out pretty cute pre-firing-in-the-kiln despite the fact that I'm one of the least artistic people you'll meet; I don't draw, paint, sew, sing, dance, play an instrument, throw pots even passably well. But I do have a knack for ordering winning dishes at restaurants I've never frequented.
We all have our skills, I suppose. :)
