Recent DIYs

While I was home for July 4th, my mom, nieces, and I tried to be a little crafty. Some worked... and some well, failed.
We tried to tie-die. It was fun getting all dirty and dyed. 
They looked great the next day after the rubberbands were removed...but after we washed them.........they turned brown. The whole shirt. DIY fail.
My mom and I did a little painting in her studio. That was one of the best times.
The one DIY that worked was the mugs I made/drew. I used A Beautiful Mess' method. The mugs were bought at Target. 
 I used lyrics, flowers, hearts, and just some random little sayings. They were really fun to make and I can't wait to use them. I didn't bring them with me since my mom is coming up here really soon to help me move in to our new place. I can't wait!
