I’ve been totally jonesing for some new dishes and had a trip all prepared for Ikea this week. However, the workers are on strike.. and as I might also be on strike this fall, I couldn’t in good conscience cross the picket line. So I decided to fancy-up my plain boring dishes.
I had actually been planning on doing this to some mugs for a while. At the end of June, I had been given a mug from Starbucks that came with a ceramic pen that the kids used to sign the mug. The awesome thing about this pen, was that there was black ink and white ink. I picked up some plain white mugs for 10c at a yard sale a few weeks ago, and gave it a go last night. But I’m super pumped to try the white ink on dark matte dishes.
I made “yours and mine” mugs, did both sides (with the way we like our tea and coffee!) and the inside. Actually, this would have made a cute anniversary gift. hmmm!
I had so much fun doing up these mugs, that I decided to keep going and do some bowls! I had fun playing around with fonts and designs. I decided to name each one a different language.. so far only four. (I didn’t want to go too crazy with all of the dishes in case my hubby hated it, or I got really sick of them!)
