In lieu of a guest book or photo album we made a guest platter. One of my lovely maids suggested going to a paint your own pottery place to decorate it ourselves. At the shop, one of the workers suggested finding ceramic pens for our friends and family to sign it.
So we went to Hobby Lobby, and they were out of black ones so we turned to the internet, and found some instantly! They were a perfect price and we understood that they'd get here in time...false. Literally two days before the wedding I realized they weren't going to be here in time. So before running around town like a chicken with its head cut off, I called Michaels, and called other nearby Micahaels, and Hobby Lobbies...did everyone in Oklahoma decide they needed black ceramic pens before our wedding?? Ridiculous.
So for reals, anyone know a pinterest pin? A DIY post? Anything???
ps: If you're in the Norman area and you want to go to a paint your own pottery place, we highly recommend Be Wild For Art!
- When you go to paint your tray, if you decide to do this, try and get a pre-idea of what you want to do...we were sorta dumbfounded when we got there and ended up mimicking our invitation
- Be patient, you have to do like three coats to make sure the color is deep...this mean every little design you do...yeah you have to go over it three times
- Order your ceramic pens ahead of time...no but seriously, think about that one early.
