In the past, some of my DIY adventures have included:
- Spot-bleached my jeans in junior high. Was made fun of. Wore them anyways.
- Tie Dyed a tee shirt in high school. Still regularly wear the tee (to the gym).
- Made my own journal covers with composition notebooks, magazine cut outs, and laminate paper in college. I don't write in a diary anymore, but I do still make notebooks to record one good thing that happens every day (saw this was a "life changer" on Pinterest - not sure if it's working or not, but glad to have a record of the good stuff).
- Tried pink hair chalk last New Years, even though I was 30 years old and well out of hair chalk's target age range. Looked weird, was glad it washed out.

This week --- Sharpie Mugs! I found a million posts about these on Pinterest and used the tips listed in this Craftaholics blog post. I am a big fan of this easy, low-cost, cool-results project and love how mine came out:
STEPS TO MAKE PERSONALIZED SHARPIE MUGS
About the Sharpie Ink: the Sharpies need to be shook (like vigorous, shake-weight shook) and have their pen-points pressed a bunch before ink comes out. Follow the instructions on the packaging. Press on scrap paper. Be patient. I started getting fired up, but ink did eventually come out nicely.
