Creative Date

A little while ago Brad and I went on a creative date. We went to Color Me Mine. It's a cute little "paint your own pottery studio." I went there one day and saw a darling little chihuahua begging to be painted into Mowgli. I then begged brad to go with me and pick something to paint for himself.

Brad picked out a Mickey Mouse bowl.. his plan was to paint it with a secret surprise message for himself every time he finished his bowl of cereal or ice cream.

I think they turned out great.
I have my little Mowgli sitting on my side table next to his ashes. 
He wears Mowgli's old collars and smiles at me as Wicket and I snuggle in bed and go to sleep.

P.S. I'm working on some new free downloads for you guys!


  1. That made me laugh! Typical man painting that into the bowl haha!!

    Little Mowgli is lovely, bless:)

  2. Ha, it made me laugh too. Boys are silly. :) Thanks so much for your sweet comment! xoxo

  3. The bowl is great, kind of like a affirmation on your mirror, but this is better. Wouldn't it be great for the bottom of children's cereal bowls, start them out with positive energy every morning.

    nice puppy, I have a much loved dog that remember fondly too

  4. my blog if you do get a chance to say hi
    I have some of my first knitting projects on there too. I need to post more, hoping this winter that will happen.

  7. Bwahaha, Brad makes me laugh. Mowgli looks great! I love that idea, I need to find some way to immortalize my rat Griffy. Maybe I'll go see if they have rats at Color Me Mine.
