T Stands for Teacup (Giant) and Typewriter and a little bit of a Tidy Up.

After I spilled a bowl of ramen in my lap I bought a giant teacup for soup and ramen. The handle makes a world of difference : D.  I found Shin ramen at Walmart of all places, It's my favorite, but I only put in 1/4 - 1/3 of the flavor packet because Korean food is SPICEy. The video below is where I learned different things to put in ramen.

Really I was all judgy about the last ingredient. But I had to admit it's the magical component to a filling meal : ).

I found a Tim Holtz Vintage Typewriter die for $5 and used the packaging to make a stencil and a mask. I'm a bit of a typewriter freak, at one point I had 17. I believe I'm down to 7 now.

The Distress Paints and Stains are all readily identifiable thanks to a 5/8" circle punch and some labels I picked up at the dollar store. Just dab, (let dry) punch and adhere. The inkpads are ALL done too : D.

Head over to Elizabeth's and Bleubeard's Altered Book Lover blog for more fun  ).

That's the best use of a tea cup I've seen all week. I'm a BIG ramen noodle user. People think I'm crazy for eating it. It's cheap and I absolutely love it. I've never heard of fish cake, but I have an Asian market in my neighborhood, so will check it out the next time I feel like going out.

You have been doing a LOT of organizing. So impressive the organizing tips you come up with.

So glad you joined us for T this week, dear. I loved your clever tea cup and your organizational skills.

Love the giant cup for soup!!
Would never have thought to put all those ingredients into Ramen noodles. Great idea, though.
Also great idea to label the distress paints like that.
Happy very late T-Day! :)

Loving your cup, it's so pretty.
I can't believe you once had 17 typewriters! Lol. What a great bargain you got that die for and thanks for the organising tips.
Many thanks for your comment on Wee Man's T post :o))

That is really a fantastic tea cup!! I have a giant Campbell's soup cup that I used at work. I need to go back and see if it's still there and bring it home. I had forgotten about it.

Hi Snap! Happy Tday! I love a big ol' mug for soup and stews. Its the easiest way to handle those things i think. What a great way to label your paints and i may definitely do that when i get settled in the new house. Big Hugs! deb

I have a giant tea cup, too, that I use for salads or soups. It seems just the right size.

Very clever to cut a stencil from the packaging and you have good organizational skills!

Hello and Happy late T Day! I love your big mug, it's so pretty. Now I want to get one for my soup too. My oldest used to eat Ramen noodles all the time. Thanks for sharing.

I like that giant cup. I have one with penguins on that I use for those extra large hot chocolates that you can cwtch! Not thought to use it for cereals though...maybe my granola would taste good in there!
If you want to pop over and tidy my room you are most welcome!
