Today, I want to celebrate the mug…the coffee mug!! 🙂 I guess it can be a tea mug or a hot chocolate mug…but for me, a COFFEE mug! (Yep, I'm on my second cup…just sayin'!!)

Mug Swap!

This year, I got in on the #mugswap2013 bandwagon, and ohhhhh, what a fun ride it was!! Be sure and check out Kim's post with all of the numbers and all of the blog post links!! wildness!!!

So the girlie I got to send to was Erin (art by erin leigh). She has the most amazing art!! Oh my gosh!! seriously, I could buy everything in her store!!

I got her a mug and few things, made her a few things and packed up her sweet box with a note…
