I am so lucky to live with fabulous people in a fabulous building in a fabulous town! On Wednesday night my apartment complex hosted a wineglass painting event. We had some chardonnay, appetizers, some wineglasses and paint and we had a ball!
I was worried that whatever I painted wouldn't turn out as great as Pinterest-inspired ones. I expressed my lack of artistic ability concerns to the instructor who told me not to worry and that "after a few glasses of wine, you're probably going to be happy with whatever result anyway. It's not about getting it perfect, it's about having fun and bonding with your roommates and neighbors!" She was absolutely right! My roommates and I had so much fun and we met quite a few of the people in our building (which means no more awkward elevator rides!)
I went for a Harry Potter inspired painting but I was a bit disappointed with the way it turned out. Maybe not quite a Pinterest fail but his glasses weren't as perfectly straight as I wanted them to be. Turns out the instructor was right though because two glasses of chardonnay later I didn't care too much. And besides, Harry's glasses were always a bit wonky in the book anyway so it's canon :P
