Mug Rug.

My Mother-in-Law had a birthday last week so I decided to try my hand at a new project.  I made a mug rug...

I thought that it turned out pretty well, but my boys were a bit, dare I say, underwhelmed.  The conversation went a little something like this:

Me:  Do you like the mug rug I made for your Mom's birthday?
J:  Um.  It's cute, but what did you call it?
Me:  A mug rug.
J:  I don't get it.
C:  Mom, that's a coaster.
Me:  I know it's a coaster, but it sounds cuter if I call it a mug rug.
C:  I don't get it.
I think that it's pretty cute, but...
it's definitely better when you add a festive mug filled with candy!

I think the equation works like this:  Red mug + Candy = Cute Mug Rug. 

Hope my Mother-in-Law likes it!

  1. That sounds like the conversations I always over-hear between MY mother-in-Law and her boys! I guess boys just don't understand the concept of cuteness! :)
    p.s.- perfect timing on this post...did you know that tomorrow is actually Mother-in-Law Day?! I should make something cute for my MIL, too...
    Hope you have a beautiful Saturday!
