I'm so excited to be here today guest posting for one of my favorite bloggers on the planet! It's always such an honor to make a trip over here to Serenity Now from At The Picket Fence, to visit with all of you!

When Amanda asked me to guest post for her, while she's home snuggling with and enjoying the newest addition to their household, the first think I thought of was a fun Valentine's Day Project...and what's better than a Valentine's Day project? A DIY Valentine's Day Project you can give someone else!

It's so easy during Valentine's Day to get wrapped up in expensive gift giving. Now don't get me wrong, I love roses and perfume and jewelry as much as the next girl but I also love sweet, simple gifts as well and this is one that even the kid's can get in on.

Like this Love Mug that you can easily make yourself! It would make a perfect gift for a favorite teacher, coach or something fun to make for Mom or Dad!All you need is an inexpensive mug, paint pens and an oven!
Supplies:
White porcelain or ceramic mug (I purchased mine at the Dollar Tree) 
 Red and Black Paint Pen
