Personalized Travel Mug

Here is another Father's Day gift and it is monogrammed with my large JustRite monogram stamper. Except this time I spelled out the word Dad and stamped the sentiment "wonderful" above it.

This is a travel coffee mug from Starbucks that Bill gave me for my birthday. I forgot about it and found it on my shelf and thought...hmmmm...I can monogram that. LOL That's my new mantra in life....I can monogram that!

The bottom of the cup unscrews and I used the paper insert as a pattern and traced it onto the pattern paper. I found these two coordinating papers in my stash.....don't know the name. I think they came in a pack from Costco that I split with Jen.

Anyway, if you look closely you will see that I sewed the pattern papers together. Yes, so proud of myself for that one! Not only do I want to monogram everything but now I wasnt to sew everything as well. Go figure.

**American Idol** The other night, Wednesday to be specific, I had to go out and get a haircut...I was desperate....even with it being American Idol elimination night I figured all would be well with being recorded. Um...nope....not with Bill home alone with the remote.

I have never in my entire life met a man that is a remote-tard but my husband is not like the sterotypical couch potato husband. No....he doesn't know what buttons to push and can barely navigate his way from the Discovery Channel to the History Channel......and apparently Wednesday tonight he doesn't know how to find Fox either. I have no idea what he did but he said he watched the ending and saw that it was being recorded but nope....no American Idol in the playlist. So I totally missed Syesha going home! UGH....life will go on...I know. You can bet next week.....I will be in charge of the remote.

See ya on the blog!

I love how you altered the travel mug. That is really classy looking! Sorry you missed Idol. I can guarantee 3 things, Paula was indecisive, Randy was the instigator, and Simon was a complete butt.

I love this travel mug and might have to make some for some Dad's day gifts. Thanks for telling where you got the mug. This is just perfect for coffee lovers.
