December, seriously?

Hey guys,

I know its been a little while since I have written, I apologize for that, its crazy to me that its already December 2nd! How did this happen? I’m not ready for the holidays!

With that being said, I recently have decided to start thinking about DIY Christmas presents because truthfully, with all these wedding expenses, there isn’t enough money coming in as fast as its going out. I am sure all the married readers would understand this.

2 years back, I made an adorable painted mug and put coffee and hot chocolate ingredients in a plastic baggie to accompany the mugs, they were so cute and such a big hit.

With the painted mugs, I made a few different kinds, some had cute little sayings, and some had peoples initials and depending on the recipient I gave either coffee grounds or hot coco ingredients.

The supplies for the painted mugs:

  • Sharpie Pens – thick, thin, all different colors. I chose Green, Red, and Gold Metalic
  • White Mug – white works best, or even a solid color. – I got mine at the dollar store! 
  • Oven 
  • Stickers – for designs

1. To do a monogram design you will need a scrapbook stickers. Pick the monogram/design you want and stick it on your mug. You will want to make sure it’s in the right place/angle etc.

2. Next you will want to make dots ALL around the scrapbook sticker. Do some practice dots on some cardboard before hand. Once ready, start filling in the area around the sticker with dots. Really fill in the area. Add a second color if you like. If you mess up, wipe away with some rubbing alcohol on a q-tip.

3. Once you have the design you want and it’s dry – carefully peel off the scrapbook sticker to reveal your design. Do touchups if you need to.

4. Making sure your area is well ventilated – turn on your oven to 350, set your mugs inside and let them bake for 30 minutes. Once 30 minutes is up, turn off the oven and let the mugs cool down inside. I left it in the oven for a few hours.

5. Then of course, fill and enjoy with your favorite beverage.

Once I have decided on what DIY Christmas present I am going to do this year, I will be sure to post it and with pictures so you can all enjoy.

my first day

So today is a day that I never saw coming. Maybe I played out in my head a couple of times before I would go to sleep on a Sunday evening anticipating a too early Monday morning without coffee but never did I actually imagine that my scariest nightmare could happen. 29, last year of my 20’s, fighting off this adulthood I am so obviously in but naive to really accept it, engaged, home owner, and aspiring teeshirt designer? refurbished furniturer? animal lover? designer? etc and etc on whatever else I feel the need to be, faced to figure out what to do career wise for the rest of my life.
How does one figure these things out? I never really understood how someone can wake up every single day and smile at the idea of going to work. The people that say they do, who are you? where do you work? and are they hiring? Lately going into the office I started wondering, did my God really put me on this earth to work a 8-5 job and not feel like I’m contributing to the success of the awards others are reaping? and then I was faced with the decision, do I accept this or do I change it up completely?
