One of my best (and oldest) friends moved to Australia 5 years ago this Valentine's Day. I've been lucky enough to see her through some major life events (our weddings & the birth of the twins) despite the geographical difference, thanks to her ability to fly home about once a year. I think about her often and miss her like crazy and I know she's probably not moving back to the states, ever. So I wanted to make us something we could use every day and think about each other. We share a love of coffee so naturally this was the perfect project!
This is another Pinterst inspired craft...I saw this pin few weeks ago and here is her blog. Such a cute project...
While I was at Michaels after christmas... I found these mugs on clearance! It just clicked, I knew what to do with these.
These mugs are made for decorating but I'm sure you can do this same project with a sharpie and baking the mugs. [something else I've seen a lot of on pinterest]
What you'll need
First I googled maps of USA and Australia. Then I scaled them down to the same size printed them and then cut them out.
I marked on the paper where each of us lives... then placed the mugs next to each other to make sure I could make a dotted line to the two locations. Then I taped the maps in place.
Next just out line the two maps, then remove tape and mark the two locations.
"you may be out of sight... but never out of mind..."
I then packaged the USA map one and shipped it to her with a picture of the two mugs together. I hope she loves it! :)
