quick crafts

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great Saturday :) I can't believe tomorrow is my last day of summer! It flies by so fast! 
I just wanted to share a couple super quick things I'm really excited about!

Painted and distressed mason jars! I'm so in love with these! You can use them for literally anything! Flowers, pencils, make-up brushes, whatever! They're so easy too. You can buy them at my etsy shop. These ones here I'm about to ship out. It's hard to see the colors in the picture but they're mint and coral and they're so adorable! :) I made a couple extra for myself!!

I went on a Michaels run, and I found these plain mugs. 
I've always seen cute ideas on Pinterest about writing on a mug in Sharpie and then putting it in the oven. So I wanted to give it a try :)
 So I drew Montana and Arizona, with little hearts where our cities are and our initials in them.
(Yes, my handsome man is in Germany right now but he's going to live in Montana soon)
And the saying, "Distance means so little when someone means so much" On the other side.

I can't wait to give it to him :) I'm going to make him a 'Welcome Home' basket when he comes and I'll be putting this in there!!

  7. Those coffee cups are so cute. I am always so intrigued when I see sharpies on white coffee mugs and then baked. The idea sounds almost too good to be true how well is it holding up? Can you scrub it, put it in a dishwasher? Or do you have to be very gentle with it?

    1. The second set I made I actually didn't bake because we're just going to use them as decoration haha. But the first one's fine! I recommend hand washing only though. Also, ceramic mugs and oil based Sharpies work the best! :) You can get the mugs at Michaels' for like two bucks!

  9. I love the last pair! I recently made my own cup with the sharpie idea and it was so simple. It definitely helped single me out as the only girl around here, because, of course, the boys will have nothing to do with the silliness that is design.
