Any plastic cups? I don't do spring cleaning, do it in the fall when I can't work outside-- I have 50-60 clear or black plastic cups that Jello puddings come in. They are 3-4oz (not sure and I don't have a package to look at to see). I eat lots of this (obviously) since it is just 1 ww point per cup. I dutifully wash these and stack them up and have no use for them, can't bear to take them to the recycler. They would be great for gessies, I used many when I was actively growing my collection. I would ship them parcel post and if someone wants to pay postage--jlmk & they are yours!

LOL!! Tish!! I've wondered where you went to!! Hi Jan!! Things are finally beginning to turn around for me...it's about time.
All of you can paint beautiful little pots!! It's so much fun. Anything that can hold a plant can be painted. My mother keeps me well supplied with yogurt cups.
The convention was really alot of fun wasn't it? I got to meet so many wonderful people! Tish, Jan and Susan, I just wished we had more time for "girl talk", but with so much going on and wanting to see everything..it was impossible.

Do you use regular acrylic paints? I tried to paint one and I couldn't get the writing on the yogurt cup covered up. Thanks, Lou

This is what I do, wash throughly, dry, then base paint with Fusion Paint for Plastics. You can find it at Walmart in the hardware section. After it dries, you can paint anything that you want on it. Even their light colors cover the print on yogurt cups and plastic coffee cans. This is an old picture,

Mel, It was my first national convention and I enjoyed meeting everyone and seeing their faces. I'm shy, so I didn't talk alot, but I looked and listened and really had a wonderful time...having that internet friends dinner was a really great idea. And yea, the time is so planned out with everything, its hard to find a time to just talk.

I've been around, mostly just reading posts. I don't have a lot of time for the computer and I can't post pictures as I haven't taken this glitchy thing in to get fixed yet. I'm in and out of town for various reasons and by the time I get caught up on some reading, most of it has been posted awhile back. But I'm still here. I just got back in town after the deadline for the bingo, so I missed out on that this time or I would have participated. Oh well, next time.

I've seen the painting dvd's and they make it look really easy, I've tried a few pot painting and they were okay, but nothing like Melanies!
