Sharpie Mug


Around my office, it's kind of a joke that I am the "Queen" (of everything).  Ok, so it's only a two-person office, but I still rule the roost.  Usually.  And since I am so spoiled (just ask anyone), I have all my "queenly" decorations around.

My parking space....

My window and door....

And my favorite mug....

....even though the fact that "different" should be "differently" (grammar check, people).  It's still my favorite mug.

But, when I came in to work on Monday, what did I find???

EGAD!!!!  A big ol' CHIP!!!!  Man!  I loved that mug!

It was a good thing I had been "Pinteresting" and found all the cute ideas on how to do a Sharpie I had bought a couple of inexpensive mugs to try.  I like a BIG cup of coffee, so I need a BIG mug!  This one I had purchased for only a few dollars at Target.   

B O R I N G ! ! ! ! !   But fear not, my crafty colleagues....Have Sharpie and my trusty Cricut and some vinyl will, stay put in my craft room!  

I jumped into the Cricut Craft Room and found the crown I wanted.  I sized it to the size and shape I desired and cut it out on vinyl.  Transfer tape took it from the cutting mat to the mug and a little marking and doodling later....VOILA'!!!  My new favorite mug!  (Note:  Bake for 30 minutes in 350 degree oven to set the ink, and hand wash to keep it looking good.)

And no grammatical errors!  Oh, the ideas are spilling out of me now!  Look out...MUGS FOR EVERYONE! lol  

I hope I inspired you to try something new!

Happy Crafting!

Hanging Business Card Holder

Bulletin Board Business Card Holder I know I have been MIA for quite a while.  Life sometimes gets in the way.  But I couldn't resist sharing this little pattern with you.   I have several different piles of OPBCs (other people's business cards) on my desk and wanted a way to display them without having to put money into someone else's advertising.  So I came up with this simple and effective Business Card Holder to pin on the bulletin board. As I was planning the layout/dimensions, I got to thinking how handy this would be to do for myself (fancier of course) to put my business cards in various places.  So after I got my measuring, cutting and scoring down to a very simple science, I set out to do a couple of fancy ones for MY business cards.  But first, here are the steps to get the basic one done. Cut a piece of cardstock to 7.5" x 4.75". Score vertically at .5" and 4.25". Rotate and score at 1.5" an

Sketch Saturday Challenge #737

Hey, crafty friends! It's time for another card challenge. Check out the Sketch Saturday Challenge #737 . It's a great place to find card sketches, get design ideas, and share your take on the current sketch.  Here is the current sketch. There is a link on their page that let's you play right along! And here is my interpretation: I used an embossing folder for the background and gently rubbed a lighter green ink pad over the raised parts of the image. I used a glitter marker to highlight the berries. Glitter tape added a little bling to the red panel. I love green and red on a kraft cardstock base. The colors really pop.  I also carried the theme to the inside of the card: I used a coordinating border folder to create the left panel and a Stampin' Up! Stamp for the sentiment.  So, tell me...what is your favorite color combination for Christmas? Are you more traditional or a bit modern? Leave me some comments! Have a fun, crafty week. Stay safe, y'all! Til next time,


It's Action Wobble time! And we are even doing a blog hop!! NOTE:  Everyone on the hop is in different time zones, so if their post is not live yet, try back later! If you arrived here from Yvonne S, you are on the right track! If you are a regular of my blog, you can follow down the line or start from the beginning. The links are listed below! Art Impressions has a fantastic set of stamps designed specially to use with Action Wobbles. These sets are so much fun (and can be purchased through the Scrapbooking Queen ). I had a blast working with the set I received. Here is my card: Outside: Granny Fanny See it in action! Inside left: Inside right: This card just cracks me up. The whole Shake Your Booty line from Art Impressions is a hoot! To make this card, I double stamped and colored the "booty" and cut just the rear end part out of one of them. I attached a wobble to the butt and the butt to the booty. Judy with the booty. Oops. I don'
