Just a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon this tutorial, outlining everything I needed to know about personalizing plain, white mugs.
white mugs of your choice. I purchased the very fine point pen she recommends here. (I couldn't find it anywhere else.) I'm so glad I went ahead and got that pen, because it made all the difference! I didn't use transfer paper like she did, because I wasn't tracing an image.
free hand, directly onto the mug. I had to wipe it off in two places before I was satisfied with how it looked.
a matched set. Like my man and I. "In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." (Maybe we all need to have a collective sigh over that.)
It's my humble opinion, that these are the perfect sweet surprise for yourself, or anyone who loves romance, on Valentine's day.
steaming cup of something yummy with him.
I have another tutorial coming later this week, so stay tuned! Have you seen any good tutorials on something fun lately? I'd love to hear about it if you have!
