my new mug (also, more love of arrows)
A while ago (like months and months!) I picked up a Sharpie Paint Marker planning to make something fun. It has sat here unopened until this week. Can I tell you just how happy I was to find it and a plain mug both sitting on my desk? It's like it was meant to be!
After a quick Google search to make sure I would get this right, and be able to wash the mug in the dishwasher, I found this post. Basically, you draw your design, place the mug in the oven, turn it on to 350F (so the mug warms with the oven). When the oven reaches 350F, set the timer for 30 minutes, then turn it off and allow the mug to cool in the oven.
I forgot it was in there cooling, so in the morning I went for my coffee, and for the first time, pulled a mug from the oven instead of the cabinet! Here's how it looked after my first cup of coffee:
How much do I love my very simple arrow-doodled mug? Very much.
UPDATE: After 3 runs in the dishwasher, some scratches are showing up...it sort of adds to the charm, but I'm prepared to redraw when necessary.
