Details of swap:

This is a "Fill a Mug" Swap.  It can be items related to coffee, tea, cocoa, soup, anything that can be sipped, slurped, or gulped, out of a mug!  You can craft a mug, or not, it's up to you and your partner.  You can fill your mug with great drink related goodies!  Think of it like a Mug-Shaped Craftser version of a gift basket! 

Partners will craft 1 Medium and 2 Small items.   

This is a great way to try new things from other countries/locations. I encourage people to send locally made coffees/teas/items if they can.  There's plenty of stuff to send... maybe a hand made mug, a t-shirt or mug emblazoned with your favorite drink, craft supplies, recipe cards, maybe somehow incorporate it into jewelry... anything!

If you are sending within the U.S. a Delivery Confirmation (DC) is required! Everyone else, save your receipts for proof of sending!

Anyone want to swap a make-your-own craft kit stuffed inside of the mug?

I'll be offline from Friday night until Tuesday, Sept 25th, so if I seem like I'm not around, I'm not flaking... I'll be in NYC, watching a live taping of the MARTHA show! YEH!!!

I'd really like to join this swap, but I'm not sure how you go about decorating a mug. Is there anyway other then painting one? If you used a store bought mug instead of making one what sorts of things could you make that would be considered a medium item?

Post by: alana1223 on September 20, 2007 01:22:36 PM
You could make coffe/tea related jewelry, shirts, cup cosies (sp?), anything that might be related!

You don't have to make a mug.  You could find out your partners fav colors are, or town, etc, and purchase a mug that fits their likes or personality!

balletfreak: I could do a travel mug for sure.

Yarnisfun: I've seen plastic travel mugs that have a place to slip in decorated paper etc. I've seen them at Starbucks, but sure you could find them elsewhere.

I just found them here too:

I'd be happy to swap a travel mug .. I use them at work for tea and it's good to have more than one!

I'm tempted...I could really use a new travel mug that fits the cup holder, but I also love those large cappuccino mugs because I can use them for soup, too.

And, since winter is coming, I'll be drinking more cocoa...

I'll let the fates decide...if there is a slot open when I get home tomorrow, I'll join ;)

If a mug is decorated and/or painted, i think the best way to wash it would be by hand and not put it into the dishwasher.

I think that it would be interesting to get stuff to make something myself since I am so up to trying new things! I bought a wood engraver/solder gun combo yesterday cause I wanted a new solder gun - but thought I would try the wood engraving too (just on a spur)! I would also love to learn to make soap and while I have done candles in the past, I want to do more with them! With all my stupid allergies I have to do unscented or open every single one to smell it....

and depending on what my partner wants, could come up with some interesting projects...

Okay, the fates have decided. Since there were slots still available...I'm in!

Just when I swore off swaps...this will be the last one for a while, I think...of course, the exact length of "a while" is open to interpretation ;)

The Dollar Tree sometimes has those travel mugs where you can put a pic in them, usually around x-mas so they should be getting some in right around now.


I cant wait to see how much I can stuff in a coffee mug.

I loooove my partner but I'm also a little scared. Turns out her husband's name is Andrew (Andy) and My bf's name is Andrew. Also we both have a Pomeranian named Riley. I told her that if she had a chi named Mika I'd get really scared! hehehe

Darn it!  That's the part I'm struggling most with, finding the perfect cup/mug!  I'm stopping at a totally new specialty-shop that I've never been to before here in Nashville this afternoon though -- I'm hoping I can find something super cool there!  ;)

Yup, that was my biggest concern - that's why I did it first.  And, I guess I needed the exact dimensions to do the crafts.  ;D

I know what I want to do for my mug, and I got the materials.  Now I am just hoping it works as planned!  Otherwise I'll have to go to plan B.

I think tomorrow is going to be my day for wrapping up crafting and I'm planning to mail out a bit early (on Thursday or Friday) only because I'm getting married on Saturday and then will be leaving on my honeymoon on Sunday morning.  :) 

I've had a lot of fun with this.  I found some great goodies around Nashville.

Thanks everyone for the well-wishes for our wedding.  It's crazy.  I just got back from our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner.  Tomorrow I'm no longer a "Miss" -- yipes.

I'm working on my last item.  :)  I may be MIA for a few days (wedding is tomorrow and we're doing a short honeymoon Sunday through Tuesday (Niagara Falls).  So I'm not flaking or anything, but I probably won't be on the computer much.  Haha.

I can't wait to see pictures of what everyone has been working on!!

Congrats, mandi!

And, today I was able to find a mug that I love! It's along the lines of what I would have made if I could have found the time to make one- I had plans to go to a paint-your-own place, but the mig wouldn't have been ready in time. And, I had asked my sister, who makes pottery, to make one for me...but it wouldn't have been ready in time either. So, I was very happy when I found one this morning!

And, I'm working on my items to go with it tonight and tomorrow. Fun, fun! ;D

I spent one more day trying to find just the right cup and have decided it is useless! nothing here is right! Everything else is ready to go, all I have to do is box it up and mail it.

so I am going to have her cup direct mailed to my partner and will give her two tracking numbers, sigh! Hope that is OK!

It sounds like several people need a day or three more.  Would it be bad of me to extend the send outs until Monday?

Maybe, since this is my first swap organizing, I made the send out period too short!

So, if you all think that's okay, i'll extend the send outs until Monday!  Let me know what you think.

since my partner sent me a PM at 1:45 this morning to say she was trying to finish up, I don't know if she needs more time or if she managed to get done, LOL!

I am ready to send my package today since I decided to order the cup - and all the whole thing revolves around the cup of course, so had to have it first - but we live so close together that our packages should get there in no time so I don't mind if she takes a bit extra time

however, part of mine is time sensitive so it is going out today - got to beat the cup to her house and it is due to arrive the 13th!!!!

OMG Thank you so so so much lol.  Dont get me wrong im done with my mug and its ready to go but it wont fit in the intended box and I was about to ask you for a day but giving some of us till at least Monday is a blessing.  I did not want to be late and was frantically looking around my house for something that would work to mail it in.

Thanks !!!

Well, I guess it's a good thing that I didn't find out about the extension until after I got back from the post office. Knowing me, I would have delayed until the last minute of the extension, and still would have been scrambling!  ;)

But, my package is on it's way!  ;D

And Pia, I know that I'll love everything, but now, of course, I have swap anxiety ;)

Hi swappers! It looks like alana1223 has been missing for a while, and some of you may need feedback and/or an angel if you haven't heard from your partner. Currently, there are 8 of you who still have "In Progress" feedback. Please help me finish up this swap by doing the following:

If your partner received, but you still need feedback, please pm me with either a pm from them saying they've received, or a link to the gallery where they posted. Make sure you put the name of the swap in your pm!

If you need an angel, please pm me with your information, and I will post for one for you.

If you haven't sent, you need to send immediately. Everyone who is unaccounted for at the end of this week will receive negative feedback.

Meanwhile, if you are willing to be an angel, also let me know that. Thanks for your help in getting this swap completed.  :)
