When I returned from my vacation, I had an itch to craft. I had been away from studio for 7 days! I looked around and came up with the idea of embellishing the boring, white, teacup I use to hold my toothbrush in. Honestly, nothing in my house is safe from my creativity. If there is a plain surface anywhere, you can rest assured that I'm eventually going to "fix it up", and this cup was the latest casualty.
The project was very simple and gave me just the right jolt to get back into crafting after my hiatus. I knew I wanted to embellish something, but I didn't want to go over the top. I wanted something simple, but special, so I chose to paint a little subway art onto the cup. Three words (Brush, Floss, Smile) were painted onto the mug using stencils and paint. I chose two different font sizes to give it a little interest. It makes me happy when I brush (and floss of course!) my teeth every morning and night. Now I'm eyeing my daughter's cup and I noticed that my husband is actually putting his away. He's probably worried his cup is next. Hey, whatever it takes to get him to put stuff away….maybe I'll threaten to embroider flowers on his socks….
