TWiP: Mug Town

This Week in Pictures, Week 11, 2018

Some weeks just have a theme, whether I intend it or not. A full half of my images this week feature a mug.

Speaking of mugs, sometimes I get questions about these mugs, so if you’re curious, you can see the full set here. The designs on the outside are all based on one of three things:

  1. A crocheted blanket I made
  2. A polymer clay millefiori cane I made
  3. A digital pattern I created to be used on fabric

I actually designed four brand new ones in the polymer clay category last week. I love making these, and I wish I had endless cabinet space so I could own every one! I already have more than will fit comfortably in our current space… I obviously can’t use them all myself, but when company comes over, it’s pretty awesome to see all of those brightly-colored designs in use.

If you like them, too, you can get them at Zazzle. They often have sales, so you can wait for one of those if you don’t want to pay full price. (Thats’s what I do.)

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the microblogging I’ve done on Instagram all week. This includes photos I shot for Project 365 (the theme for 2018 is mornings: #myyearofmornings2018) and any other extra images I may have posted.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…


365 πŸ“±: #myyearofmornings Mar 10 – Raise your hand if you remember Polka Dot Radio! πŸ–! Just me then? Yeah, that’s what I thought 🀣

InstagramΒ πŸ“·: – Show and tell time 😁. I think I’m calling this one “Chestnut.” It’s a top down raglan with a contrast trim. It’s super comfy, and I really like this neckline 😊


365 πŸ“±: #myyearofmornings Mar 11 – Yesterday I made a mason jar cozy for my pens, and 3 coasters out of the 5 I had planned. My work area prettification effort is nearly complete 😁


365 πŸ“±: #myyearofmornings Mar 12 – Hello, first Monday of Daylight Savings Time. πŸ˜ͺ *yawn* [Taken at work.]


365 πŸ“±: #myyearofmornings Mar 13 – More snow. It’s awfully pretty. I’d hate to ruin my appreciation of it by going out in it… Think I’ll work from home for a while this morning 😜


365 πŸ“±: #myyearofmornings Mar 14 – sometimes my breakfast has an unintentional color scheme. #redandgreen [Taken at work.]


365 πŸ“·: #myyearofmornings Mar 15 – Neil usually sees the kids off to school in the morning, but he’s in Florida today. So I am up while it’s still dark, wishing them a good day, flipping through Instagram and looking out the window.

Three on a Theme πŸ“·: Theme: Glimpses of Spring – These poor lilies had over a foot of snow dumped on them last week, but they’re still hanging in there.


365 πŸ“±: #myyearofmornings Mar 16 – I saw the kids off this morning and then went back to bed for two hours 😁. And now I’m listening to a morning playlist, having breakfast, and reading about the art of the Swedish coffee break. (So far this day off from work is really hitting the spot!) β˜•

Instagram πŸ“·: – I cleaned the kitchen. Friday night, coffee and candlelight.

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me onΒ InstagramΒ β™₯
