Diy Sharpie Mug {Breaking Bad}

Sharpie Mug
We were OBSESSED with the Breaking Bad series. Dan was so sad when it ended, I thought I could cheer him up with a daily reminder of his favorite character Heisenberg. Now he feels like a bada$$ when he drinks his morning coffee.

Here’s what you’ll need:

-1 ceramic mug
-Sharpie (I also used a Sharpie paint pen)
-Oven

You can draw anything you want! Pop that mug into the oven at 350F for 40 minutes and your Sharpie design will stay put!


Our Travel Gnome

Meet Felgar. He is our official travel gnome. He mysteriously appeared in our backyard during a BBQ with friends. Hmmmm… I suspect Justin Felgar (hence the name and because Felgar suits him so well). Our friend Justin (beau of my best friend Shan) will be away for the next 9 months or so with the Navy, so we’ve decided to bring Felgar the Gnome along on all our adventures. We’ll send the real Felgar pictures of his gnome friend so he won’t miss a thing. Any who — this is him. He’s going to be traveling to Israel in 2 weeks! Yipppeeee!

Vodka Gummy Bears

This is funny… I am definitely going to try this at our next party!
Adults only — Vodka Gummy Bears
Soak a bag of gummy bears in vodka for 3 to 5 days in the fridge. The Gummy Bears will absorb all the liquid! Serve at a party for a bit of fun!
My favorite gummy bears are by Albanese.
They have fantastic flavors like:
Granny Smith Apple
Watermelon
Wild Cherry
Lemon Meringue

Soap Shaver?

This fascinates me! I want one for our Shower!
Nathalie Stämpfli a student at Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands invented this amazing soap shaver! Here’s why: “Using hard soaps over bottled liquid soaps can help our environment by cutting back on plastic waste. And if you leave a bar of soap in the shower, this invention will help keep the bar of soap fresh and clean between uses.” Genius! Why didn’t I think of this! Nathalie designed two dispensers that turn block soap into beautiful little flakes. The first version needs to be attached to a wall and the second is a twist grater that can stand by itself. Each design produces fine, delicate soap flakes and helps release the soaps fragrance while you shower.
