Coffee coffee coffee

Anyone who knows me pretty well knows that I love coffee. Like not addicted (though Jeff would tell you I am) but in LOVE with coffee. No headaches or shivers or withdrawals, just love me some coffee!
Jeff knows me better than anyone so you can almost bet on it that if I have had a rough day or its a special occation, he is bringing Dutch Bros or Human Bean home to me after work. <3 Such a good man.
Monday was our anniversary and not only did he bring me a raspberry mocha but red roses too! I was surprised actually because I couldn't imagine him getting me anything else after the Canon camera!
Another thing Jeff laughs at me for, because he knows me so well, is the way I bounce, literally bounce, around when I'm happy. Sometimes I'll even say "bounce bounce bounce" while I hop around. Then, to make him laugh more, I started saying "coffee, coffee, coffee, coffee" when I was excited about getting coffee.

So to commenorate my sillyness, I made a coffee cup.

It's so beyond easy and cheap to make your own! Here's how:

1. Go to the Goodwill or any thrift store and buy a white ceramic mug in any shape that pleases you. Bring it home and clean it really well. You will also need a Sharpie.

2. Decide what you want on your cup.

3. Write or draw! I used a rubber band on mine to create a semi-straight first line. I also made every "coffee" different on purpose because I'm terrible at writing the same way every time.

4.Once you are done doodling, heat your oven to 350 degree and "cook" your cup for a half hour.

5. ALLOW CUP TO COOL BEFORE TOUCHING IT! I just turn off the oven and let it sit for a while so I don't take any chances of dropping it or burning myself.

And wha-la! your very own personalized-no-one-has-one-just-like-it coffee/tea cup! This makes fantastic, inexpensive gifts too!

I made a cup for Jeff too, as you can see. That is his goofy way of saying good morning :)

What would you put on your mug?
