Pinterest Post: DIY Mugs

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!

5. You guys rock! For real!

Goodnight all 🙂 Hope you all had a (less?) eventful day than I did!
