A Lovely Parting Gift

It's been kind of a bummer summer around here. Friends are moving away by the truck loads. I guess that's what happens when you live in seminary housing. Your friends graduate, move on and do what they have been trained to do. It's a good thing, but it's hard.

As a goodbye gift I made my friend these mugs. They turned out so cute I decided to list them in my etsy shop.

It's tough to say goodbye to a place that has been apart of your story for so long. But it's exciting to say hello to a new chapter of your life. Moving is just one of life's bittersweet moments.

I totally have a thing for state outlines & hearts lately. Check out these items from GreySkiesBlue:

  1. Ridiculously cute!!! I bet she loved them :) 

  2.  Thank Kori!! I think she did :) I am just glad I don't have to make any for you this summer!!

  3. Those mugs are adorable!  What a great idea!

  4. Thanks Maria!! Too bad I will be making a few more sets this summer. 

  5. You are such a great free-hander! Lovely, Kate!

  6. Thanks Shel!! I am thankful I can, they are my new hot item :) 

  7. I love love love this idea...I might have to make a set!!!

  8. Adriane, I recommend using oil based Sharpie paint pens if you are going to make them. They hold up much better to light washing. Have fun!!

  9. I TOTALLY understand your love of state outlines/hearts. There's something charming about them. :) By the way, if you're wondering where this random comment has come from months after the date of this post - it's been pinned on Pinterest! :)

  10. I've been wanting to do this for a while now.. or something similar. Anyway, did you just draw on it with a Sharpie and bake it? Also, did you put a topcoat of anything, or just left it like that? :D Planning to make tons of them for friends and family back at home.

  11. It's very straightforward to find out any topic on web as compared to books, as I found this post at this web page.
