All over instagram it was MUGMANIA.
The best/ worst part was it was a secret swap. You knew who to send to, yet you didn't know who was sending to you.
I am so bad with suspense!!!
Each day I tried to play Sherlock Holmes and figure out which mug might me mine.
Then, when I saw this post from Lindsay of Pen & Paint I LOST MY MIND.
Thinking that someone would get a one of a kind Pen & Paints creation was more than I could handle.
Imagine what went through my mind when this lovely package showed up in my mailbox.
Seriously. Imagine.It was crazytown.
I could frame the dang box it came in, it's so cute.
But wait, it gets better.
SO MUCH BETTER.
Are you still alive?Because I sort of wasn't when I opened it.
Are you kidding me??????
HAND FREAKING PAINTED.
The only one in the entire world, and it is mine.
Be jealous. I sure would be.
But I don't have to, because it's mine.Deal with it.
She totally could have stopped there.I still would have won the most amazing mug in the whole dang swap prize.
No, she had to go and get even more awesome and add in some cards.Cards swathed in the glory of what she drew. MUGS of awesome for days.
On cards.For me.
Proceed with the hating of my guts. I understand. I can take it. I certainly deserve it.
Honestly, I cannot believe it. Cannot.
Lindsay- I love your crazy talented guts.
(Visit Lindsay's shop. You won't regret it.)
I love that girl. She is all kinds of encouragement and sunshine.
The quest was on to find her something special.
I even cut into my PRECIOUS donut fabric that is tragically out of print, and I have been hoarding forever.
She is worth it.
Kim, you are a spreadsheet rockstar.
Thanks for hosting.
Thanks for pairing me with such amazing friends.
Are you ready for next year, or what?
Pretty sure it cannot get better than this.
