DIY monogram coffee mugs

Saw these beautiful monogram mugs at Anthro a while back and stuck them in the back of my mind. Recently saw this pin on pinterest about making your own customized plates with a sharpie marker, & I decided to try to make my own monogram mugs. Plus, I wanted to make some housewarming/new mother gifts for a few girlfriends and decided these were the perfect gift, and even better that they would be handmade.
All you need is a ceramic mug, a sharpie, and stencils (optional). Then bake in your oven at 350 for 30 minutes and ta da! The marker will set in and is now permanent, and you have yourself a beautiful, personalized mug to make your morning extra happy.

A few important notes:
- Do not put these in the dishwasher. They can handle a good hard hand washing & scrubbing, but the marker will come off a little if you dishwash. So don't do it.
- Do not preheat the oven before putting the dishware in. As soon as you turn the oven on to 350, put the mugs in with it. Otherwise, the drastic temp change will cause them to break. And you don't want that to happen.
