My Mug Swap for 2014

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:

Mug Swap

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:

Today

I hope I make a new friend.

I will keep you updated on this mug swap journey!!

Thank you for stopping by!
