Are you ready for a project you will crave for?
Well, It is the project I had always wanted to find. But there wasn't. So I decided to create it and post it. Uh, since I don't like project with STRANGE and RARE materials...the teacup is made of things YOU HAVE at home. Or, if not, you'll find in the nearest supermarket. Have fun!! :)
