Hey Hey! How are you today?  I hope you are feeling challenged to go gold! Didn't here about what going gold means?  Click here.  Please share the links at the bottom of this post and visit them to show your support for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month!

I recently saw this really cool mug on Pinterest and I just had to try it out. It's from Good and Messy to see her original post click here.  It is such a cute, simple craft. 

I grabbed a few mugs and wine glasses at the dollar store and a few Sharpies at Wal-mart.  I cut out letters with the Cricut and used a Xyron to make it a sticker.  
I added it to the mug and just made dots all around the letter.  Dot. Dot. Dot. Very easy and it only took me about 15 minutes.  

After it was complete, I removed the sticker and baked it in the oven at 250 degrees for an hour.  I placed it in the oven before I turned it on and then let it cool completely in the oven after turning it off.  
I loved it so much that I decided to add some dots to wine glasses to make them special!
The gold on all of them looks awesome and really does look metallic.  LOVE. love. love.  

Just for kicks, I did one in an emerald green.  The only thing that went wrong with this one is that I happened to buy an extra fine point Sharpie.  UGH.  The dot dot dot took about a half hour.  LOL.  
I think these are super gifts.  You can really personalize them and any sticker would work.  Once you remove the sticker, I suggest just rubbing off any leftover residue with a Q-tip and some rubbing alcohol.  Be careful not to hit your dots.  

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!  Remember, all my projects this month are GOLD to remind you that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month.  Here a couple of links to bloggers that are sharing their stories. Please go out and leave them a comment to let you know you are supporting them in their fight!

Mary Tyler Mom is featuring Pediatric Cancer Mommy Bloggers each day in the month of September - click here

Check out the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund - they are doing amazing things for families of children with cancer.  Feel free to help them out and donate.

Happy Weekend all!  Keep going for the GOLD!

What a great project - something I could probably have the kids help me make. It would be a great gift for teachers, and we could fill the mug with some baked goods. Thanks for sharing!

This is really cool! I did something like this with drinking glasses and paint, but this seems way easier (and less time consuming)!
