Mid week Mom and I had a little outing planned with the girls. It’s something we wanted to do before Christmas, but our schedules just didn’t jive. It’s called Crock-a-Doodle –  a fun little place to paint ceramics. They provide all the materials and firing, you just go in and paint and have fun!


It’s the place where Krista made my awesome yarn bowl last fall. That’s what Mom wanted to make, but sadly, they didn’t have it available.

Instead she opted for a spoon rest which she decorated with a sunflower. Paisley made herself a cookie monster snack mug (the mouth holds your cookies) and Rowan made a little treasure jar.


The girls also collaborated on a teapot for their Mom’s birthday (which is tomorrow!)

As for myself, I’ve been wanting a unique butter dish for a while. I’ve been keeping my eyes open at thrift stores and antique shops, but nothing tickled my fancy.

IMG_5504So Crock-a-Doodle to the rescue! And what self respecting butter dish would be complete without a dragon???


Certainly not mine! He’s going to be glued to the top of the lid for some extra pizzazz!

Of course, the pieces still need to be fired. They will look a lot different when Mom picks them up! I can’t wait!

(They also have some gnomes…. I totally have to go back and make some gnomes!!!)

  1. Oh, what fun! Can’t wait to see that butter dish!
    (I grew up doing ceramics and even had my own shop years (eons) ago. (It’s a family tradition – my grandmother, my mom, and my stepmom all had their own shops, too. As a matter of fact, my sewing studio right now is one end of my stepmom’s (now closed) ceramic shop. I could probably go up there and paint something right now…))

    What a fun outing! So many cute projects completed. I think you definitely have a unique butter dish. Your dragon is so cute. Back in the 70s, ceramics were one of my hobbies. Such fun to paint and see the end results.
