I was given a nutcracker to paint. When I say given, I mean I was told I was going to paint a nutcracker. I was content with watching the kids have a ball. But I guess my mom wanted to watch her kid have a ball, so I indulged her.With steady hand, I turned my nutcracker into Mr. Diva Nutcracker. He had green glitter pants and was looking mighty cute. With my prized possession in hand, I turned it over to mom, as mom should have the best handmade crap...I mean crafts, right?
We did make some cool painted glass ornaments that actually turned out halfway cool...
Of course, after a Bailey's, anything looks like a masterpiece. And leave it to the adults to be the last sitting at the table decorating their balls...errr...trains.
If you're looking for a reason to get the family together, this is a great idea for the kids and kids at heart. It really was a ton of fun, even for those of us that don't have any artistic ability.
