15 Minute Holiday Mugs

Don’t you just love when a project comes out exactly like you pictured in your mind?

I’ve been wanting to make sharpie mugs ever since I first saw them on Pinterest.  So I finally said to myself, “What are you waiting for?”

I went out and bought a few permanent markers and then hit my local thrift store for a few white mugs.

After playing around with a few different sayings, I decided that “May all your days be Merry and Bright” was perfect for this time of year and all year long.

Then bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

I really love how it turned out!

But since this was such an easy project, I couldn’t stop there.

Personalized Snowman Mugs

I made these cute snowman mugs.  Connor and I love drinking hot chocolate now that it is getting colder outside.  So after I baked the mugs int he oven, we enjoyed a nice cup of hot chocolate with our new mugs.

Don’t you just love quick and easy projects?

I think I’m going to make a few and give them as gifts these year.  I could put gift cards and small gifts inside the mugs.

Latitude & Longitude Wall Art

As soon as I came across Kirsten’s Latitude and Longitude artwork on Pinterest, I immediately saved her free printable and created my very own.

I love how it turned out!  I used Pic Monkey to add my coordinates and the quote “Home is where our story begins.”

Isn’t her printable AMAZING!!  I love the map.  Kirsten’s entire site is fabulous!  I love finding great ideas and awesome new blogs on Pinterest.

I uploaded it to Shutterfly and ordered it for less than $4.

Oh, I just love it so much!!  Thanks Kirsten for inspiring this artwork and for the free printable.  And, of course, thank you Pinterest for taking time out of my day and always inspiring me!

Personalized Dog Placemat

Our dog was in desperate need of a new placemat and since I love personalized things I started looking online for one.  After searching for a little while and not finding any that I liked for a reasonable price, I decided I was just going to have to make one.

This ended up being such an easy project.  I’m glad I didn’t pay to have one made.

I simply went to Target and bought an inexpensive placemat for $2.99 and added our dog’s name, Rocky, using vinyl letters.  It took less than 5 minutes to make and I’ve gotten so many compliments.

Definitely a quick and easy personalized project that anyone can do!!

2010 in Words

A friend of mine told me about an awesome website.  It’s called tagxedo and it creates word art.  It is similar to wordle, except you can save it to your computer.  It will also put the words into different shapes like a heart, train, four-leaf clover, etc.  It is a really neat website to play around on.  There are so many fonts, colors, and shapes to choose from.

So, as we were having a lazy family movie day, I decided to play around with tagxedo and create one using words, events, and memories of 2010.

This is what I came up with:

If you are looking for a simple way to make subway art or just want to play around with some word art, check it out for yourself.  It makes it super easy.  I do recommend saving it as 1 mp and then I just uploaded it to photobucket.  I think there is a way to get the html code directly from tagxedo but my macbook was acting up.
Have fun creating your own!  Comment with your blog post if you create one.  I’d love to see what you come up with.
