What's up everyone!?!? Northern Ireland has been finally hit with some snow! Being canadian, I'm totally over it but the locals here are so excited. It's like seeing a bunch of kids everywhere, amazed by it all. Nice really.

For Christmas I had asked for some craft related goodies, Sharpie pens being one of them. I don't know about you, but I've seen a tonne of pins on Pinterest for Sharpie mugs and they look amazing. So simple but really personal. I love that.

Anyhow, I finally decided this week I would give it a go. Im sure you know the score here. Wash the mugs first, use the pens, bake @ 350 for 30 mins and DON'T PUT THEM IN THE DISHWASHER unless you feel like re-doing your work over and over again. Incase you want a little more of an in depth tute, please click here.

So, this is what I started with:

What pearls of wisdom will she inscribe on these white canvases??  you maybe asking yourself...


Your beliefs don't make you a better person. Your behavior does

The less you give a damn, the happier you will be

What you think you become - Buddha

Be so good they can't ignore you - Steve Martin

Whenever I get sad, I stop being sad and start being awesome. - Barney S.
 Classic How I Met Your Mother.....It had to be done...

Fresh out of the oven.

So simple, yet so effective. They've already sparked a debate between myself and Theo when he told me that I had "nearly a bad word" on my cup. I simply explained the meaning behind " Do Epic Sh*t" and he was inspired later on to dance his little backside off in an attempt to be EPIC. I think he got the meaning. 

Yes, this is my son upside down on the kitchen floor...

On a different note, I have been working really hard (and by "me" I mean "hubby") on getting social media buttons on my blog. Somethings on Blogger are harder than they need to be *grrrr*. Anyhow, in the meantime, please please please check out my Facebook Page. I love the love!! (I'll love you back too, promise) x
