So before I show you all my Pinterest Projects from today, I wanted to give you guys the real view of our new curtains in the Master! Jeff found these online at Target and we instantly fell in love!
Onto Pinterest! I decided to put my Pinterest Posts to work for me by making a few items and posting them on my Etsy Page. Today I made three different DIY ceramic mugs inspired by this Pin, this Pin, and this Pin.
Here’s how to make your own at home:
Find a plain white coffee mug. Target, Dollar Tree, and Thrift Shops normally have these for pretty cheap.
Grab a Sharpie in your favorite color and doodle away! Use stickers and dot around them for the “Dotty” Mug or freehand the design of your choice.
Bake the mugs at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes to set Sharpie.
That’s it! Simple, easy, inexpensive personal gift! Also, if you make any mistakes with your Sharpie, just take a Q-tip with a little nail polish remover and wipe off your mistake!
Next week’s project? Chalkboard Painted Kitchen-ware!
A quick post before bedtime guys:
1. Tomorrrow I will be posting my Wednesday and Thursday Posts. And I have curtains for the Master Bedroom!! Horribly lit picture, but exciting, I know 🙂 Better daylight pics to come tomorrow!
2. Atlas ate a mini tennis ball yesterday, keeping us at the vet/emergency vet all day today. Luckily for us, right before we were about to sign paperwork for them to surgically remove it (and charging us thousands of dollars), he puked it up. Not pretty, but saved us a bunch of money and him a bunch of pain! Win, Win!
Also, the reason for why I haven’t posted anything as of today like I had intended…
3. I opened an Etsy shop today and will be selling some cool Arts&Crafts and Planning stuff if any of you are interested! That is where I will also post any freebies that I feature on the blog and start setting up cool giveaways! I only have one item up as of now, but more will come in the next week or so!
4. I’m exhausted and headed to bed.
5. You guys rock! For real!
Goodnight all 🙂 Hope you all had a (less?) eventful day than I did!
Today was my official last day of work before I fly up to Ohio for Jackie’s wedding! Yippee! I was sad, however, that I had to drop Atlas off at boarding for 5 days. It’s like a mother letting go of her child, I swear! I’m so attached, it’s unreal 🙂 Anyhow, I managed to let him run off to the daycare people he loves so much (without even turning around to look at me!!) and got to thinking about today’s wedding-inspired post.
Before our wedding last May, I found myself wanting something to commemorate our big day that we could hang in our home for the years to come.
A picture frame with our (non-existant) engagement photo surrounded by messages from attendees? No. A little overdone for my taste.
A photo canvas of one of our wedding pictures for above our bed? A little to personal if we have guests over.
A huge collage of our faces on the entry-way hallway? Yikes. Not a chance.
So after many options coming and going, I finally settled on it. A canvas with a tree where, within the leaves, our guests could sign their name and leave a little message.
It was perfect! Personal enough because we would be the only ones who would be able to read it as it hung in our bedroom, but artsy enough to fit into our decor without screaming “LOOK! I’M A PRODUCT OF THEIR MARRIAGE! LOOK HOW GREAT THEY ARE!”
A great friend of mine made up two art pieces for our home that were perfect, in the same way, too. The first was two white wooden letters with and ampersand in the middle. The second was an addition to our OSU themed office with the silhouette of the state of Ohio and our first names and last name within the shape. As soon as hubs sends me the pictures of them I’ll post them. Super amazing artwork!
Leave me a comment with the unique wedding artwork that you had at your wedding or what you’re making for a friend! I’d love to compile more ideas!
