It's my turn to blog for the 3DJean Design Team today so I thought I'd share a page made using a backing paper from the Studio2Mers 'Constellations' range which is in stock in the 3DJean shop.
Here it is .. but if you have a favourite mug for your tea/coffee ... you might want to look away now:
- Its body ... was just big enough to hold just enough vital caffeine.
|The fabric is from this kit, which I guest-designed with in June.|
- Its base ... just wide enough to balance safely on the bed / sofa / my chest ... basically anything I casually set it down upon.
- Its handle ... just the right size for me to slide my whole hand through which is my absolute, No.1, essential criteria for a mug as I'm an unabashed mug-hugger.
- And finally ... its ceramic was just thick enough to withstand most of the mishaps, wobbles and knocks which life with me inevitably brought it.
But not all:
All 2 separate pieces of it!
I'm wondering if my
When I was growing up, for as long as I could remember my Grandma drank from the same mug at our house. She only ever drank from that mug and none of us ever used it when she wasn't there.
We joked that she and the mug might be linked together like in the nursery rhyme 'My Grandfather's Clock', where the clock "stopped, short, never to go again when the old man died"! I think we were always worried that if the mug ever broke ... well ... I think you can guess what we worried might happen! In the end Grandma outlived her mug but seemingly, she passed down her one-woman-one-mug traits to me.
And fear ye not for, while it took time, I finally found a mug to take the place of my own broken favourite [which I blogged about it here ... if you're curious!].
Maybe I should have bought two ... just in case ...
Anyway .. it's nice of you to drop in... shall I put the kettle on?
See you soon.
