Warli Art- DIY Sharpie Mugs

Hello Dearies!!! This is my latest obsession with a sharpie marker and white mug. This craft does not need a lot of time, time you may take to design the mug and bake for 30 minutes. 
However simple it may sound, there are a few pointers to keep in mind before you  bake these beauties. 
1. Sharpie markers come in different colors, tips and bases. Take  an oil based  marker. The regular marker fade away and even a slight harder scrub while washing will result in the design coming off.
2. Draw a thicker design, the thicker the lines the better they will look and stay longer.
3. Bake hot. Most people who do this craft will tell you to bake at 300-350 degree F for 15 mins, but baking at 400F up for 30 minutes did the trick for me. Each oven varies, so use your judgment as you know your oven well.
4. Hand wash only, Although the oil based marker is permanent after baking, why take chances. Handmade is so precious so skip the dishwasher and hand wash only for longer shelf life.
I am making these in multiples now, they are  sudden hit with all my friends and family. They do make awesome and quick gifts.

Food Fun- DINO puris for kids- Kids Lunchbox

Food Fun- DINO puris for kids- Kids Lunchbox
Hello Dearies!!!! Times flies at the light speed. Summer just started and by the time we realize, schools will be opening and we will be back to the same questions. Kids lunchbox ideas. 

I keep thinking of making a fixed weekly menu, but by the end of first two weeks of school, I get lost and am back to scratching my brains every morning.

I have tons of fun cookie cutters. I am a pack rat and I heart all things cute.Most of my visits to Home Goods come back with cookie cutters, vases, pitchers, anything under $5. 

I found these Dino Shapes in one such trip to the store. They were too big for cookies, so were stashed away at the back. Every time, I chanced upon them, I thought next time I will use it for something.

My kids are not in the age where they will enjoy food in fun shapes, they are entering teens and at this point any food that resembles junk is welcome by them. But this is  a cool way of making your kids eat what you want them to eat without any fuss or excuses.
