You’re the Top: Personalized Mugs

In our home we love letting Valentine’s Day be a small thing. Our favorite gift to give each other is just a quiet night together. There’s always a never-ending list of things to do, so it is refreshing to rest and spend time together.

Jordan gave me this fun vintage magazine holder. I love how it looks like a harp!

I wanted to make personalized coffee mugs for Jordan because mornings are my favorite time with him. We enjoy playing cribbage, drinking coffee and catching up. This past summer we had fun watching The Dike Van Dyke Show on Netflix and this quickly became one of our favorite scenes:

So I used this great Porcelaine 150 pen (that I got at Michael’s). It’s so easy! Just write or draw whatever you want, let it sit overnight (for 24 hours) and then bake at 300* for 35 minutes.
tip about baking: put your mugs in the oven before heating it up to allow the mugs to heat up slowly. Then, once it is finished baking, turn the oven off and let the mugs cool in the oven before removing them. This will prevent the mugs from cracking due to sudden temperature change.

We strive to make each other “the top” over our own wants, or our own desires. What a sweet reminder each morning of this shared goal.
