I am so NOT craftsy... I try but my artistic bent is music, not crafts. Recently I found this sweet little tea set that is "paint your own." Since I'm hosting a party this summer where this will make a wonderful addition to the decorations, I went for it. Yesterday afternoon while we were doing about as much of nothing as we could, I decided to sit down and paint it. I know - cheap brush + cheap paints = not so great paint job but still... I'm not super-thrilled with the way this came out. I think I'll stick to purchasing already-decorated tea sets in the future...what do you think?
