DIY: Sharpie Mugs (Little Shop of Horrors style)

I’ve been in a nostalgic mood lately.   I was very much the thespian in high school being involved in 2 musicals and a couple of plays.   The one I will never forget is Little Shop of Horrors.   It’s not because I was the lead in the musical but because it’s just a fun, funny and quirky musical…like me! So, as I was in the process of re-organizing my home office desk and needed a fun way to manage all my crafty items and such, I decided to pay homage to my dear musical.  And thus the turning these plain white ceramic mugs into holders to hold, well, whatever I want… Check out the DIY youtube video for this article: There are many other DIYs out there for sharpie mugs.  Most of which are used to drink out of.   Thus you will need to put it in the oven for 30 mins.  For this art project, we are just using as holders so no need…unless you can’t live without baking them, then go right ahead. Here’s what you’ll need at …

Why Not Now with Min-D!

There are many “scary” numbers like 666 or 4.  My scary number is 39.  Yes, 39 gives me a lot of anxiety.  39 is the end of your 30s!  For me, it’s the last year to squeeze every ounce of immaturity out before the start of the dreaded 40s.  When you turned 30, did you feel old?  I sure didn’t.  All the way up to 38, I was like, “I can still HANG with the 20-year-olds”.  But now, I can’t help but notice white hair, dimples and brown spots spreading through nukes and cracks of my body like chicken pox.  And where did all my pumped up, hyper sensitive adrenaline run off to? Nowadays, it’s a win just to go hiking once a month. Ahhhhh…the dirty signs of growing old.  I turned 39 a couple of months ago…I’m totally scared. I’ve always lived my life willing to put myself out there and experience new things. So shouldn’t I know my true passion by now? I am a 39 year old wife, with no kids, a …

DIY: White Wall of Things to To

Do closet mirrors scare you?   Well, join the club.  Other than giving a small room a larger illusion, it’s kind of scary.   Imagine this:  It’s late at night, you are alone in your office just typing away.   Then you lean back for a stretch and at the side peripheral you see hands!  Your head immediately turn that direction and there you are in the mirror looking back at you in a frantic gaze. So, since I need to make my top 10 things to do this year.  And more than not if I wrote it in a notebook or in an email, I’d most like will not look at it like I constantly look at it now.   In my biased opinion, this is brilliant.  But I only covered one slider so that I will still have that “large room” effect from the other mirror. Want to try it?  It’s super simple and takes like 15 minutes.   The hard part is drawing out what you want to put on your wall.   Let’s start with the easy …
