You've Got Mail DIY NY 152 and Shopgirl Mugs

What will NY152 say today, I wonder. I turn on my computer. I wait impatiently as it connects. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You've got mail. I hear nothing. Not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beating of my own heart. I have mail. From you.

I’m so glad to hear that there are some fellow You’ve Got Mail fans out there! Yay! As promised in yesterday’s post, a quick DIY for these You’ve Got Mail mugs. I’ve seen this method all over (for years now!) and I’ve been dying to try it.

All you need is a Sharpie and two blank mugs. That’s it! And, you can use any color marker you want. Can you imagine these in gold?? :) Once you have your design in mind, simply use your Sharpie to draw it on your mug. Tip: use both a thick and a thin marker. Using the thick side made it a little faster but having the thin marker helped me clean up my lines.

Bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Leave in oven until completely cooled. Hand wash only.

We don’t use mugs a whole lot in the summer (we’re waiting for hot cocoa and apple cider season!) so for now, they’re doubling as my vase for my bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils. ;)
