Yesterday @stockannette sent out a tweet looking for Etsy items of orange & aqua. She ended up piecing together a beautiful and original treasury.  Many thanks for including my mug hugger.

Link Love – Treasury ::Green Tea with Zen and Honey:: April 3, 2010

I always love it when I’ve been chosen to be a part of a treasury. It means someone took the time to love my product and link it up for others to enjoy within the company of other fine pieces of work. Today, while waking up and not yet enjoying my loyal cup of coffee I found a message in my Etsy convo box telling me to check this link: Green Tea with Zen & Honey Treasury on Etsy

Wooooot Wooot – it is so gorgeous! I love the theme and the colors are just divine. Many of you know that my favorite color is green and mixed in with natural hues of brown and gold it just pops off the screen.

I want to take a moment here to thank Steph’s Art & Glass for featuring my Mug Hugger in your treasury – please everyone take a minute to check out her shop:

here are a couple of beauties from her collection:

Boutique Karma – Cafe Collection January 31, 2010

Spotted Owl

Over a year ago, when I first contemplated opening shop I was knitting (something that seems so far off recently), and I was making different colored coffee cuffs for my trips into the city. I was so excited by this idea that I wanted to share them, and when I saw the price sellers were offering on Etsy I decided this idea was ludicrous and went on to offer different things. Along came my other lines: casserole carriers, crayon roll ups, coasters, eye pillow & bobo packs.

Many people who follow me on twitter or know me in the ‘real’ world will know that I LOVE coffee! I’m sadly addicted and dependant on the drink. I’m a slave to my fabulous coffee maker and in moments of crisis I will trudge through the drive through (or brew some in my Tassimo). Yes, I did separate coffee maker from Tassimo. I have a wonderful grind & brew machine which make glorious coffee.. my Tassimo is a nice quick fix/latte maker. This being said ‘make what you love’ kept nagging at the back of my head. So over the holidays I had made these cute coffee cuffs for friends & family to go with their Christmas gifts and I’ve had these Mug Huggers in the plans for such a long time that I decided it was time to launch the Cafe Collection line.

The coffee cuffs are a beautiful way to accessorize your take out coffee in the morning (noon & night). They are an extension of your personal style, keep your hands from burning, and a green way of doing away with the disposable paper sleeves certain companies use or double cupping from other competitors. Most of my coffee cuffs will only be available in my store once, they are made from the last piece of material after cutting my eye pillows. Less waste = greener studio.

My Mug0-Huggers are so cute & fun. I’m so happy with the finished product. There is an inner lining of Thermolam batting to keep your coffee a touch warmer and your hands warm nice and comfortable. They secure through the handle using a small and discreet elastic with a vintage button.  I’m purchasing buttons upon availability at an organization selling items to help low-income families in their area.
