So being the poor high school student that i am, and loving my best friend as much as i do i got kinda creative with my V-day gift for her.
i don't have any before pictures but i wish i did.
It was a simple white coffee mug which i painted valentine type colors on it.
I did manage to get $5 to buy some herseys kissables in V-day colors.
This is the finished product.


(it says happy commercialized, communistic and shallow interpretation of a day set to celebrate love.)

(yes it is possible to drink coffee or tea or chai in it. lol)

Yeah! I would like to see a picture of the painting too!
I have a few questions: what kind of paint did you use and did you use anything to seal it?
I was thinking about painting a mug, but need to know how to do it first!

i am sorry for being a bad, rude swapper. i am sorry to all the partners i flaked on, and all the feelings i hurt. i feel really guilty, my life is messed up right now and i got greedy and selfish. i didnt think about anything but getting nice things. i am so sorry everyone. i'll be leaving now.

hmmm.. so i might be able to get a pic of the painting.... lol if i can convince her that i NEED a picture of it lol.I used this paint my mom has had since i was little she used to do cermanic stuff..... i think it is acrylic... umm and i took it to the 'dancing paintbrush' about 20 mins away and told them i want to be able to put tea in it and $2  and about 2 days later it was ready. lol

so i have it to her today and she LOVED IT. i was so happy... she gave me a poen and a heart shaped box with sugar free candy in it... ( i am diabetic) the poem made me laugh

Sorry about the migraine from hell - must have been going around - my coworker was in the ER with one also. I understand about not remembering how to do something  -I'm the same way and could kick myself sometimes lol
