DIY Coffee Cup Rack

DIY Coffee Mug Rack

A cup of coffee at 7pm is not an entirely wise idea. You could argue though that it sometimes leads to fun things, like this DIY Coffee Cup Rack!

Luckily I live in Saskatchewan, where we stay on central time 365 days a year!

Hey friends! Popping in today to share a quick craft with you! A few weeks back, I tried my hand at 'Fluid Art'. If you haven't already heard of it, fluid art is the art of acrylic paint pouring.

So in the spirit of fluid art making, I made some fluid art magnets! To make your own,[...]
