pretty idea number one....done

 Over the weekend I decided to try my hand at the cute coffee mugs I talked about here.

They were surprisingly easy....and fun. I ran out to the nearest store to pick up a couple enamel paints and just used the two plain white coffee mugs I already had on hand. I really like how they turned out....they're fun and whimsical. But of course....like most projects....my mind started racing at what other silhouettes I could make....and decided I would try my hand at making cups with our own portrait silhouettes on them. I'll let you know how they turn out....and maybe even show a tutorial on how to make your own portrait silhouette.

  4. Wow - well done! I thought that the originals in your earlier post were great - but to think that you did these yourself - that is just SO impressive - and they look just as good as the shop bought ones! I look forward to the tutorial.
