With fall coming quick, it’s time for me to curl up under a blanket with a good book or knitting project and I can’t forget a cup of my favorite tea. Around this time of year, I can never have too many mugs since I’m almost never seen without a cup of some form of hot liquid in my hand.
I loved the look of Lacey’s key hooks created with alcohol ink. I thought they looked a lot like a really gorgeous granite countertop. I loved the idea that you could use alcohol ink to create something that looked like it had been “dipped” in stone. And so the idea for this mug was born.

I am notoriously bad at remembering my keys. In the past few weeks I have locked myself out of my apartment twice and my car once. This fact is proven by the bent screen that is sitting in my kitchen right now from where my boyfriend broke into the apartment to save us from being locked out for hours. So not only are these key hooks necessary to keep me organized, they were also a great excuse to play with a new medium I haven’t used before, alcohol ink. These key hooks were surprisingly easy to make, though I did encounter some bumps along the way.
