Second Post for the day
Hello everyone! I’m back again today with a different type of post! I’m excited about this post because I’m participating in a Swap that is amazing!!
Its the Annual Mug Swap!! I found this awesome project on Instagram. This year’s theme is Blessing Others!! Isn’t that amazing!!
Here is how it works:
Give a mug. Get a mug. You sign up with Kim over on her website and she assigns you partner to swap a mug with. What I love is that its a total surprise. You don’t know who has you or what part of the world they are from. I LOVE THINGS LIKE THIS!!
So Kim, creates a form and you fill it out with some information about yourself so that the person who gets your name can get you a mug based on what you say. How much fun is this!!
The funny thing is I missed the first round and was down about that. The spots go sooooo fast. Then Kim opened 30 more slots and I rushed to get my form in. I made it by the skin of my teeth. I think I was the last spot. I was so excited when I saw that my form was accepted. Yayyyyy!!
So with that said, next year I’m going to be the first in line. You should too!
Now on to my mug swap:
I wasn’t given a lot of info about the person I have to send my mug too. I check all of her social media platforms but unless you friend her you can’t get any info. All I know is that she is moving and is a new mom wanting to get to know other moms. She lives in the States. Wow, that is a lot to go with!! Not really!
So, I decided to stick with what I know and that is I’m a mom too. So I searched for a mug that represented that. I look high and low.
I thought living in NY, we had all kinds of stores. I went searching for mug stores. Can you believe that we don’t have any!! I search Manhattan, high and low, and none.
I did find a small shop that sold all sorts of knick-knacks and I found this mug:
I knew right away that this was the mug I wanted to get!! As a mom, I know I have superpowers and I want her to know that she has them too. Being a mom is such an important job that we will have for the rest of our life’s!
I hope she likes her new mug and uses it often! It’s going in the mail today and should get to her by Wednesday of next week. I can’t wait. I will also include a really nice card, the one I made today and some other stuff I think she will like.
Here is the card just in case you haven’t seen it:
I hope I make a new friend.
I will keep you updated on this mug swap journey!!
Thank you for stopping by!
