Dottery? Yes, Dottery!

It’s polka-dot pottery and crafty mama Bethany of Bethany Actually is a master at it. She and her preschool daughter visit the pottery store often on weekends and paint dottery.
Now that the weather is chilly this is a perfect indoor activity. Dots are awesome because they are simply beautiful. And, you can even start making your Valentine’s Day gifts now. Tell me a Grandma wouldn’t LOVE a mug with her grandchild’s fingerprints as artwork:

If you tackle one piece per weekend, by springtime, you could have your own play tea set.

    I feel I should give credit where credit is due…it was Sonja of girl with greencard who came up with the name Dottery. Vielen Dank, Sonja! (Did I use that right?)

    I’m a big fan of the Dottery. I think it’s beautiful and I love all of your color combos.
