For the Bored

$2 mug kits from Michael's by masikawa

I've been pretty lazy lately. I've gotten into a terrible habit of going to work, coming home, working out and spending the rest of the night on the couch watching Hulu and browsing Tumblr.

Tumblr is a great place to get inspired but also the kind of site that will suck you in and won't let you go until you look up at the clock and realize that you have to be up again in four hours.

With a ton of inspiration and new motivation to get the creative juices flowing, I took a little trip to Michael's and spent a bit of time looking around for a new project. I didn't want to take on anything too big (and by too big, I mean something that will take me more than two days to finish) and I wanted it to be fun.

On a tiny, almost hidden shelf, I found these little mug kits! The perfect project for a girl who gets distracted easily. Each kit was about $2 and came with five markers each: red, yellow, blue, green and black. The colored markers looked a little too much like white board markers when I tested them out so I stuck to using black only and I love the result!

Overall, I think this was a good project to get me started on. Maybe now I can finish painting my set of drawers (a project I stated last October...hehe).
