The problem with unique names
Another weekend of baking and cooking like crazy for the upcoming week! I never have much time during the working week to cook healthy food, but I know that if I don’t I’ll end up eating something terrible out of convenience at work. So, major cook up days it is! Along with the scones I made, and stir frys, and cookies, I also managed to fit in some crafty things too. I started a new painting that I am so keen to finish but have to be patient about. I also started another project of making personalised china for my love and I. I have been looking for a while for some things for the wedding and found some plain white mugs that I thought I would try to DIY into something cuter. Now the thing about having the name Eliza and my love having the name Rex is that we never see those personalised key rings, or mug, or hats with our names on them. I cursed this as a kid when I would go somewhere and never find my name, but I do like that my name is a little less common. This inspired me to personalise the mugs for us – but we don’t call each other Eliza and Rex and I’m not the biggest fan of babe, or baby so we don’t use those either…. As always, my DIY work looks DIY and I like it
Echee and Wallancee – I call him Echee, he calls me Wallancee, don’t ask me how they evolved into that, but these are the names that have stuck and I love how unique they are. I can’t wait to show you what other things I have come up with to decorate a beautiful white tea set a friend gave us, as well as some soup mugs I found! Oh – and all it is – a sharpie permanent marker, I used the washing machine proof one, write/draw on a super clean surface and then I popped it in the oven at 170C for half an hour whilst I was making my cookies, the recipe for which I will post later! So simple, so fun, and finally we can have personalised things with our less common names!
