Summer 2013 memories plate 1

Throughout this past summer, I used Sharpies to record some of the fun activities our family did.  I included both big vacations, and small moments.  Then, at the end of the summer, I baked the porcelain plate in the oven – instant summer memories!  Learning from my experience with the teacher mugs, I baked the plate at a higher temperature – 425 degrees for 30 minutes.  The upside – I think it’s finally waterproof (and maybe even dishwasher proof, although I’m reluctant to test that out).  The downside – the Sharpie colors really faded, so the final product isn’t nearly as bright or colorful as I thought it would be.  I figure that’s okay, though, because you can still read all the memories!
