Cheaper Then a Therapist!

That's the joke around here, each week when the gals show up for class. It's not just coming to paint but it's their therapy. When I think of all the stories that have been shared around the table while everyone paints. There have been some crazy stories and jokes that have made us laugh till we cried. And then there have been heart breaking experiences that we've all shared. So I guess it is kinda like therapy. But what better way to spend an evening then with friends and a cute design and your paints. With all the bad news and stresses of the world we live in I find that's my way of getting away from it all without leaving home. When things are weighing heavy on your mind try getting out your paints, brushes and a design that maybe a friend would like and painting something for someone else. It's a good way to relieve the stress of the day and clear your head, it just good for the soul. With the economy like it is right now painting is still one of the crafts that's affordable. You need to invest in three or four good brushes that you can use coupons to get an even better price on. And the paints are are still a good deal even though the prices have gone up some. Those little bottles of paint last forever less you painting something huge. Right now you can find lots of pre-cut ornaments to paint on. Look around for some painting magazines like Quick & Easy Painting or Painting, or Paint Works you can order then online and you'll find all kinds of patterns for some really cool things to paint for the holidays. So my challenge for you is to get a surface to paint on and spend some time relaxing and clearing your mind and see what you come up with. It's a nice way to spend an afternoon and you might even end up with some cute gifts for family and friends.
