Ok, so today I have not done too much reading in my book. I read a little bit but honestly like 2 pages. So, nothing new to report on that front.
Faelyn yesterday ate 3 chicken bones (we had drumsticks the night before and he decided to dig through the trash while TJ and I were on our lunch date. What a loser. Anyway, that resulted in him frantically jumping on the bed earlyish this morning and begging us to take him outside to go potty. He has had the runs all day. I told him that is what he gets for eating three chicken bones in the span of an hour.
But anyway, I got up and went and got a haircut this morning. When I got I worked on some student loan stuff and transcript stuff. After TJ went to work, I had some errands to run that took up most of my afternoon. I had a raging headache by that time. But I got something from goodwill that I had DIY intentions for so I was too excited not to try it out. Thankfully it did not take much effort. I am a pinterest-oholic. My hubby can attest to this. I love to surf through pins and boards and find stuff that I would like to try at some point. I get lost for hours sometimes. Well I saw this pin that said you could write or draw on a ceramic coffee mug or plate or what have you, bake in the over for a half hour and then it would be permanent. Well, I just love coffee mugs. I mean I have a collection! Luckily, there was a plain white mug at Goodwill today and I just snatched it right up. It cost me a grand total of 63 cents. Yay!
So, the next step was figuring out what in the world I wanted to put on it. I wanted to put words on it, but what quote I wanted was hard to decide. I finally came across a quote that I was determined to put on it. You know, the Pride and Prejudice with Kiera Knightly had just some of the best lines. Mr. Darcy was just making all of us swoon with his one- liners don’t you agree? So the quote I chose was “You have bewitched me, body and soul.” That is how I feel most of the time about my hubby. (we all have those days where are loved ones drive us nuts.)
So, I took my blank mug.
I figured out what I wanted to write and in what kind of script and started.
I can’t just leave it at the writing. I had to add some embellishments. (You should’ve seen the notes I took in college or more like the pictures I drew during class. )
Then I took my finished drawings and put my mug in the oven at 350 degrees for half an hour.
I worked on my Epic Blanket of Insanity blanket while I wanted for my mug to be done.
And here is the result! Yay new mug!
So, while fighting a horrid headache, you can still have a little effortless fun making your mug!
You should try it out!
