I have been told that I have to put up some pics of my Christmas creations.
I bought plain white porcelain mugs, and porcelain pens from Spotlight.  I then printed some pictures off that I found online, and shaded the back of each picture with a soft drawing pencil, then sellotaped the template onto the mug and traced it on with a ballpoint pen, and drew over the tracing with the porcelain pens, and wallah!
Everyone loved them.  I have just realised that I forgot to take a pic of the best mug, was a wee border collie for my FIL.
