OMG! It's National Coffee Day


coffee crafts

What's better than celebrating a birthday or Mother's Day?  It might just be "National Coffee Day." However, when it comes to caffeine, everyday is Coffee Day in our house; and here is the sign adorning my craft room door to prove it: 


So grab your favorite coffee drink and linger awhile while I share   
a few photos and past posts of my favorite coffee-themed crafts. 
 I've included some links to get you right over to the post for more details.

I decided my daily lattes were a bit of a luxury, so I created a Coffee Stash Cash Can. I place my extra change in it (and an occasional dollar bill), and use this "extra" money to fund my caffeine addiction. Plus, it was fun to create.

This next photo shows one of my coffee-theme ensembles.  It includes a set of coasters, note-holder and pen desk set, a large note clip, and (my favorite) a clipboard with matching pad of paper.  I love how everything coordinates!  These make wonderful gifts, especially with a fresh hot cup of coffee or coffee shop gift card.

Another favorite altered art project of mine includes transforming three square canvasses into a trio that I call "Three Cups of Coffee."  I used a lot of coffee ephemera, including old gift cards, coffee sleeves and even a vintage coffee spoon.  Click here to quickly get to the post to see the completed trio and tutorial.

And in case you've "bean" busy and missed my post about coffee and shampoo...here it is again.

As you can plainly see, I am a fan of obsessed with everything coffee.  However, I hear that drinking two to three cups of coffee a day --just like a glass of red wine --actually has good health benefits. 

That's my story, and I'm sticking sipping to it.

  2. I'm a big fan of coffee too. I drink 1-2 cups of coffee a day. I make my own at home and I have the occasional Starbucks iced mochas/lattes. My kitchen decor is coffee. I love coffee that much. I especially love the smell of coffee.

  3. Omgosh that "friends don't let friends drink decaf" is just too funny! I'm not a big coffee drinker, but my hubby can't live without it. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday.
