This past mother’s day was great!  We spent the actual day in Branson, MO at Silver Dollar City with Tanner’s family.  His brother was in town for a week visiting from Colorado and we decided to take advantage of that and take a short weekend trip together.  It was so much fun!

Since we were out of town on mother’s day we decided to celebrate the next day with a cookout over at our place with my family.  We loved having them over and sharing that special day with my mom!

This year I decided to jump on the personalized mug train and make a fun little mug for our mother’s.  It was crazy easy and definitely worth the time!  Maybe next year your mother can enjoy a new mug?  Because you guys know… “Home is where your mom is” ;)Make a simple DIY mug for your mom for mother's day, birthday or just to show her you love her! | www.gimmesomestyleblog.com #diymug

What you’ll do:

  • Wash and dry your mug
  • Draw your design or text directly onto the mug–left hander’s be careful of smudging!  (As if I need to tell you guys this–the life of a lefty..)
  • Let the text dry completely and follow directions on the pen for the next steps.  Mine said to let the paint cure for 8 hours and then bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 40 minutes

**Additional notes:  I chose to use a ceramic/glass pen over a sharpie because I haven’t always had the best luck with the sharpie mug method.  Ceramic pens are made specifically for glass, dishware etc.  and I have read that they last much longer.  My pen says that it is dishwasher safe, but I would still recommend hand washing for best results! 

And just for fun here are a few photos from our weekend with our mamas! :)
