September Update:

Good Evening Ladies!
Just wanted to inform all you lovely souls that Saturday September 19 has been canceled. Due to Covid! We will keep you all updated with the next workshop.
Prayers to all. 🙏

September Update:

Last Saturday, we learned about emotional intelligence and how we must first learn about and love ourselves. And of course, what our kids look forward to most, PIZZA! ❤️

September Update:

New Beginnings. Last night our new Chicktime group met up with our girls for the first time in a long time. Lots of new faces. Lora D. Williams graced us with her presence. If you know Lora you know that when she is in the room EVERYONE feels comfortable. The motivational speaking she does without even knowing it is astounding! Because of this it was a perfect way for our new girls and our new group to break the ice! Lora‘s positivity lights up any room and we had an amazing time with her. We also had a baked potato bar! See yall next month!

More Than Conquerors

September 2021:

What a wonderful morning we had as our girls at Boysville expressed their creativity through painting. What a great sight to see their creative minds come to life on their canvas. We are especially thankful for the St. Padre Pio Acts ladies who donated the art supplies and snacks, and to the young ladies from UTSA Kappa Delta Chi Sorority who interacted with the girls, chatted, laughed and painted alongside them.
As we usually do, we ended our time by circling up, sharing what we are grateful for, and ending in prayer!
Looking forward to next month’s activity already – our hearts are full

Materials

Mugs

Aluminum Foli Casserole Pans

Nail Polish

Drying Rack or Skewers to sit jugs on to dry

Paper towels to catch dripping

 

 

 

Procedure

  1. Fill  a disposable pan (or something you don’t mind getting permanently colored by nail polish) 2 – 3″ full with warm water.
    Add more or less depending on how high on your mug you’d like the color to reach.
  2. Make a mark on the inside of your pan to indicate the water level so you can fill it to the same spot each time if you’re making multiple mugs.
  3. Then, add your nail polish! Pour it onto the surface of the water, adding more or less depending on if you’d like more or less white to show through your marble pattern.
  4. Working super quickly, use a toothpick or skewer to swirl the nail polish across the surface of the water to help create the marble effect, but don’t think too hard about it! You don’t want to drive yourself crazy overcomplicating a simple process and you want to move quick so the nail polish doesn’t set up on the water.
  5. Moving equally as quick, the next step is to dunk your mug into the nail polish water. Go straight down and straight up to achieve the dipped look.
  6. Move the mug to a protected surface to dry completely, avoiding rubbing the surface of the mug until completely dry. I prefer to sit mine on top of a something to elevate it a little bit (such as a couple skewers) so it doesn’t stick to the surface it’s drying on, and I let them sit and dry overnight before touching them again.
  7. Once dry, a super light and thin coat of dishwasher safe ModPodge  and your mugs will be protected when washing, too! (But hand washing to be safe is never a bad idea.)

 

** Extra Notes
For each mug you’ll need to dump the water and start over, regardless of whether or not you’re changing color. Because the nail polish will start to set up on top of the water, it will be too thick and gloppy to get more than one dip at a time. Other than that it’s a simple process of swirling and dunking!
