This Weekend: Have A Self Portrait Party

Often times we take the artwork in our homes too seriously. Plus, not many of us that think we could make something for display, but our friends over at Croqzine have us thinking differently with an activity that brings the whole family together! Details on throwing a bash that could turn into an annual event after the jump!

Heather, who heads up Croqzine as well as Dollar Store Crafts (which we covered over at Ohdeedoh) rounded up her family recently and set them all down with assorted blocks of wood.

She gathered acrylic paints, paint brushes, paper plates (to use as individual palettes), and set up tables to give each person in the family a workspace. They also had a couple of big mirrors on hand for people to use for reference. Apparently the men in her family took the longest, no matter what the time spent, we think it's a great collection to have and could be a great family tradition in the works! Read up on Heather's full account of her painting party over at the Croqzine blog.

Thanks Heather!
