Decorated Coffee Mugs

Decorated Coffee Mugs

Our daughter and I like to share craft ideas and make projects together, as we both are self-proclaimed week-end-warriors and do-it-yourself girls.  Last week when we visited, she surprised me with some coffee mugs that our grandchildren decorated for my husband and me.br /br /div style="text-align: center;"Decorated by grand-children  (except for the hollies--my daughter did that.)/divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ZXQX5bkEpWM/VK5F2aQqtKI/AAAAAAAAEQE/ZkXFchzUQCY/s1600/Tazas2.png" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="426" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ZXQX5bkEpWM/VK5F2aQqtKI/AAAAAAAAEQE/ZkXFchzUQCY/s1600/Tazas2.png" width="640" //a/divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-yv54K8vmoyw/VK5F2US-YlI/AAAAAAAAEP8/bBkkKoDfrng/s1600/Tazas.png" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="426" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-yv54K8vmoyw/VK5F2US-YlI/AAAAAAAAEP8/bBkkKoDfrng/s1600/Tazas.png" width="640" //a/divI liked this little project so much that I ended up buying coffee mugs and plates to decorate with my daughter.
