It’s only Thursday morning, but I woke up and prayed it was Friday already. Sadly, it was not. Last night I made another huge round of mugs that are going out this morning and as I was sitting there stamping my notes, wrapping the mugs and taping up the boxes, I realized how happy these stupid mugs make me. When I ship them out, I feel like Santa Claus delivering presents. Knowing that I’m helping someone either give or receive a little mug as a gift with their favorite lyric or quote makes me so happy. Just to be a part of that joy, even if it is minuscule, is a very good feeling.
So as much of a love-hate relationship these mugs have been over the holiday season with the late hours spent tracking them, painting them, and shipping them, I know it’s totally worth it in the end. When I think about how much I love giving gifts to others over the holidays and then realize that I am involved in that transaction for hundred of others worldwide, it’s kind of amazing.
Have fun traveling the world my little mug babies. I hope many people enjoy their favorite cup of coffee or tea with you over the holidays.
PS another random/cool/slightly creepy fact – lots of people now have my handwriting in their houses because of these mugs.
