Paint baby keepsakes at Brushstrokes

When I brought my five-week old into Brushstrokes for the first time, I thought he was “too old” and that I’d missed some important window for newborn feet. I’ve learned a lot since then. Among my many lessons is that baby feet are tiny and precious for quite a while and the folks who work at Brushstrokes know a thing or two about making baby keepsakes.

Drop by anytime to paint unglazed ceramic pieces ranging from mugs, frames, and plates to piggy banks and pasta bowls. If you have a moms group of eight or more, you can reserve the upstairs studio. Meet your mom’s group there for a fun, chaotic morning of painting toes on mugs. Or bring your toddler in to smear up a beautiful plate (for which you had other ideas altogether).

Expect to pay the drop-in studio fee ($14) plus the cost of any item you choose. Pieces can be picked up in two weeks.

Hand and footprints can also be pressed into clay.

  1.  I did this with my baby also. We made frames for the grandparents and tiles for our house.They do grow quickly, but not SO quickly that 5 weeks old is too old 🙂
