Grandparent Mugs

Happy Saturday sweet friends!
This almost NEVER happens...me posting on a Saturday.  But my daughter just got finished with these ridiculously cute mugs for our 3 sets of Grandparents and I HAD to share them with you. 
Hopefully if any of you need a last minute gift idea, this might work for you. :)
We bought 6 plain white mugs last night and this morning we got to work!
I buy my ceramic paint pens at Michael's.  I really like them but FYI...have had some that just won't flow any ink. So keep your receipt! Or I am just doing it wrong.  Which is likely.
Our red pen would not work so Cati wanted to make green and blue hearts and I am so glad!  
They turned out fabulous!We will wait 24 hours and then bake them in the oven at 300 degrees for 35 minutes.
I love that this can be for Valentine's Day, birthdays, Mother's/Father's Day, etc!
Aren't they just so precious?
I think I need a I Mommy one now. :)

These little paint pen projects might make another appearance since I have a few more neighbor gift ideas to share in the coming week. 
You know... 
...for those of you who are like me and wait until the very last minute to do just about everything.

Hugs to each of you!
