Fun Ideas for Valentines Day

It’s easy to take our loved ones for granted…to get lost in the monotony of everyday and not look for ways to appreciate them as a special gift!  Today I hung out with one of my sisters (I have three – my birth order is no. 2).  She showed me some of the paintings she’s working on and some that she’s finished recently….she’s a brilliant artist!  We braved the snow and did a little Dallas shopping…my favorite Valentine’s Day finds were at Crate and Barrel….I have got to make these ASAP…white plate and a red sharpie…bake it at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and the design will stay permanently!  It really works!!

    Are the plates safe to eat off or should you use a ceramic glaze on them then fire in kiln

    Is the plate ceramic or plastic (I’m assuming that’s a dummy question and it’s ceramic but wanted to check).
