I Made This… Calendar Journal

IMG_9358

Beginning of October I decided I wanted to start calendar journaling (is that a real word?). And surprisingly, I kept up with it all month. Yay! Each day, I would just sit down for five minutes and draw something in the box for that day.

Most days, I drew something that related to an event that happened that day. Other days, I drew things that inspired me.

I’m glad I kept up with it all month. I am pleased with how the whole month turned out when I finished it. I recommend you trying it, because I think it is a very fun way to document the days and will be enjoyable to look back on.

Hopefully November will look even cooler!

I Made This… Sharpie Mug

What You’ll Need:

  • White coffee mug.  (any color will do, I just like the contrast of black on white)
  • MAKE SURE THE COFFEE MUG IS NOT PLASTIC
  • Sharpie (again, any color will do)
  • Some free time!

This is a great project! Just draw whatever your heart desires and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 min. Let the mugs cool in the oven to prevent cracks. I’m not sure if they are dishwasher safe (I’m too scared to try). The thin sharpie doesn’t seem to hold up as well as the normal sharpie, so be careful in how you clean them. Gentle hand washing is best.

I made a kitty for my mom and some intricate design I just came up with on the spot for myself.
