Let's go painting....with a twist!!!

Let's go painting..with a twist!!

A little while ago (Ok, it was like two weeks ago and I am JUST writing about it now...hashtagbetterlatethannever?) I went with my sister and momma to "Painting with a Twist." I'm sure that like everyone in blogland has heard of this phenomenon, but just in case you haven't, I'll give you the rundown. Basically, if you have zero artistic ability and want to paint a swoon worthy photo, and get drunk, and laugh your ass off at how completely untalented you are, then Painting with a Twist is for you. There were 2 awesome instructors who literally walked you through the painting, step by step. Seriously guys, I know that some of my past craft projects have made me seem artsy (just go with it...) but I have no artistic ability whatsoever. Like, none. I am however, super creative and love a good chance to hang out with the gals, so it was amazing. And I got to eat cheetos while painting, so it doesn't get much better than that.

The picture of the night was an owl. And not like a boring brown owl with beady eyes and ugly feathers (because, obviously, that's what I picture when I think of an owl). But NO!! Not only was this owl colorful and adorable, but you could literally change anything you wanted about the painting as you went. Didn't like the eyes? Change the color. Not enough feathers? Add some more! Feel like making your owl look like he is wearing an Indian headdress? Sure, why not! Even though the instructors walked you through everything step by step, you were able to make it completely your own. And I was amazed at the little differences in everyone's finished product. 25 people painting the exact same thing, not one of them were identical.

I would definitely recommend signing up to go if you haven't already done so! I think there are locations all around the country, so most likely there is one by you. Or you may have to drive like 100 miles to find one, but whatever, it's worth it.

Here are some pics from the night:

The finished product...I know, fabulous right??

Now that I have managed to write an entire post about painting an owl, I'm off to binge watch some Netflix. Which, if I am being completely honest is the main reason that I have been like a ghost around here. And I'm only a little bit sorry.
