Kitchen Tiles

For my birthday this year I decided that I DSC_0269wanted the family to give me gifts of creativity. I asked them all to come with me to a local “paint your own pottery” shop.  These shops are wonderful because you can go in and paint a work of art on some ceramic creation, the shop will glaze and fire it, and you have a dishwasher safe, functional keepsake.  I have a whole set of hand painted dishes after hours and hours of painting.  I had each of my family members paintDSC_0202 a ceramic tile for our future home.  I hope to eventually collect enough tiles to make a completely unique backsplash in the kitchen.  I am currently up to about fifteen 6″x6″ tiles.  I may be dreaming, but I think I’ll need a few more to make a full backsplash.  The tile I made for myself was a handprint creation.  I made my kids handprints into elephants.  If you look around you will find that you can make just about any animal this way.  I love the idea of the whole family contributing to our future home, but love even more that I will have these handprints out where I can see them every day as a wonderful memory of my children when they were tiny.

Autumn has been rather miserable weather this year.  Plenty of wind, rain, and snow to keep us from our Autumn chores and all the fun things we usually would be doing.  We have been stuck indoors quite a bit, much earlier in the year than usual.  People always ask me, …
