Happy Monday, friends! It’s the 10th of the month and you know what that means, right?!? It’s our 10th blog hop! The theme for this month was SNOWFLAKES. I admit, it was a tricky one for me. I put it off as long as possible, called everyone I knew for ideas, and ended up deciding that the best thing to do is just take a trip to Michael’s and wander the aisles for inspiration. It worked. Okay, let me stop here for a minute and tell you… awesome deal… until TOMORROW, Michael’s is doing 25% off your whole purchase! Click here for their promo code.

Alrighty… on to my Silk Screened Mug and Snowflake Poem. Did I mention this is a great neighbor gift? They’re cheap, easy, and fun to make!
To make the silk screened mugs, you’ll need:
Martha Stewart Crafts Opaque Glass Paint (I used the ‘Pearl’ color.)
Martha Stewart Crafts Squeegee Set (I bought the bigger sized ones, but may pick up the other set too. It would have come in handy for the smaller areas.)
Ribbon to decorate mug
The best way to learn how to use the Martha Stewart Silkscreen supplies, is to watch this video:
To go with the snowflake theme, I wanted to include a super cute snowflake poem that I found and made into a printable for you. It would be cute to roll it up, like a scroll, tied with ribbon and included with the mug gift.
I just loved this picture… my little Benny sneaking his hand into my photo set-up.
