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!
