I joined a mug swap a few months ago hoping to get a cool new mug to drink coffee out of. Nothing else. Truth is, the last time I participated in this type of swap it was pretty meh, just a simple mug kinda-thing...this time, not so much. And, I was in heaven!
Granted, I was paired up with one of my oldest blog buds, Leesh so I pretty much knew I was in store for something cool. I just didn't really have a clue as to how fucking cool it'd be.

After a long ass day at work, I got home to this bad boy.
It's pretty funny cause just the other day I was asking Rusty why anyone would want to buy decorative packaging tape, it just gets torn through anyway, right? Well, I get it now. It looks really fucking awesome, that's why you buy it!
Look how pretty it's put together. That's not the best part though, check out all the stuff that was inside the box. Yeah, girl didn't stop at just a 'coffee mug'. Score!
She also included a colorful handwritten note that totally reminded me of HS & will love forever. I've participated in A LOT of swaps and although I've never been let down by any of my partners, this package definitely is one of the top 5 because it had handmade items in it. Knowing that someone took the time to make something means more than spending any amount of money. Sometimes.
Alright, enough of this sappy shit.
Thanks for the all the great stuff Leesh. I promise yours is on the way.
