It just seems like it was January, and here we are in the first weekend of December!
Since this was a busy week,
I am finally able to start Christmas decorating and putting away Fall decorations!
This post was the second post on my blog last year, so I thought I'd bring it back, because
it's one of those projects that turned out beautifully, and
would make a wonderful gift for teachers, hostesses, or neighbors!
Although, I am not good with an artist brush, or putting pen to paper and drawing a masterpiece, I love to do arts and crafts, and this post by Poppytalk, inspired me to add a pop of color to my morning cup of coffee.
It's simple enough, all you need is a white ceramic mug, nailpolish (and make sure it isn't old nailpolish. Old nailpolish doesn't work at all, it just clumps up.), a disposable container ( I used a pie tin I bought 3 for $1 at the dollar store) and warm water.
The color combinations are endless. Try one color, or layer color on top of color, allowing each color to dry in between layers. Here is the first one I did. To date...This is my #1 Pin on Pinterest!
*Update- A year later it still is!
With my coffee! The pattern reminds me of the crashing waves of the ocean and the sky above.
For next time, I think I am going to go with a Halloween theme, glow in the dark, purple, black, or a fall theme with orange, red, and brown, or yellow and orange. Should be fun! If you make one let me know, I'd love to see what color combination you create.
*Update- I still have the mug a year later, and the watercolor has remained.
I wash it in the top rack of my dishwasher!
Enjoy the rest of your week!
