Homemade decorated mugs

I found this idea on Pinterest and I thought it was super cute. As I got older, a lot of my best friends moved away from NJ. It has been really hard to keep constant contact since we are all so busy! :) And the different time zones really don't help either! I saw this and thought it would be awesome to make these for my friends in different states! :) 
I just bought white mugs from the dollar store and drew on them with sharpie. Then baked them in an oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes to set the ink. 
:) What a great and inexpensive idea to keep your best friends close. 
Have fun! :)

Baby girl's room letters

I have made these letters for my friends older daughter as well as for Lexi. They were so expensive at the stores that I couldn't bear to pay for them. So I thought I could make them with some paint and wooden letters from AC Moore.  And of course with help from my husband to drill the holes in the tops of the letters for hooks. Even though these are/were time consuming, it's nice to be able to customize them. Plus, they are also a nice baby shower gift if you know the name of the baby! :)
