There is something quite unique and precious when you take part in the process of making something ordinary into extraordinary.

My wonderful circle of friends and I have decided to craft or cook something new every week. On our first Crafty Monday, we painted mugs. It's quite simple. All you need are:

• 1 mug
• paint for ceramics (non-toxic)
• paintbrushes
• stencils (if you'd like)
• masking tape (for clean lines/stencils)
• alcohol

Clean the mug with alcohol, then apply the paint on the mug. Be free and creative as you'd like, the possibilities are endless. Be sure that the paint has dried. Then prepare your oven to 350ยบ F and once ready, place your mug in for 30 minutes. Remove the mug and let cool. Voila! You now have a brand new (and lovely) cup for all your wonderful coffee or tea times.
