If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that on Friday, I met up with a bunch of bloggers at
which is basically a dream for anyone that likes wine, socializing, and/or painting (whether you have the talent or not). I was a tiny bit hesitant about the whole thing because stick figures are about as creative as I get. In fact, I've never painted on canvas in my life. Luckily, we had a great instructor, Jeff, who broke it down in tiny manageable steps even I could handle.

Marie from 12 Signs Wine provided twelve different kinds of wine based on the Zodiac signs. You can actually host your own wine party and they'll provide the wine, and personal astrology readings.
Sounds like a fun Girls' Night in to me!

And of course this group of girls knows how to eat...
After eating and chatting, it was time for class to begin. Everyone grabbed their glass(es) of wine and sat down at a blank canvas. Paint N' Vineyard provides the canvas, paint, apron and all of the brushes.
Jeff led the group step-by-step and if we were having a bit of trouble, he stepped in to help.

On the left is the instructor's painting and on the right is mine. I struggled with making the waves breaking look realistic. Also, my palm tree kind of resembles The Lorax.
