I'm addicted to mason jars and have collected many. I didn't know that I could tint my own mason jars. This method actually works, although it may take a couple tries to get it right. Such a cute way to transform the ordinary jar into a work of art.

A little Cup of Happiness:)

Why not start the day with something to make you happy? Recently I made my boyfriend a pair of mugs that looked similar to these. Adorable, YES. A pain in the bum, YES. You simply use sharpies to design the mug, then bake them for 10 mins on 450 degress (so I thought). The mugs design started coming off, so my advice would be to, after baking (once cooled), add a layer or two of mod podge to seal in the design! (make sure it's water resistant mod podge).
