The weather is definitely turning frosty here in Utah. Days like these have me dreaming of mugs full of hot cocoa at every opportunity. I am delighted to report that our Cricut Community members have been creating many fun designs that I look forward to crafting to support my cocoa obsession. Check out these lovely possibilities:
*Checking the clock* Yes, it is after midnight here and I am still up as usual. I have kids who get up early and I do have sleepy regrets in the morning. Thanks for capturing my life on a mug, Karley.
I fill my house with inspirational reminders to take a chance, stretch myself, and go after my dreams. I can use this Be Fearless mug by Shameka to keep me motivated to work after I am done sipping my cocoa.
I didn't know quilt retreats existed until my aunt went to one. Coming together and crafting quilts just sounds so cozy and lovely, and you can add a special touch for participants with this mug by Judy.
Here's a crafting secret: dollar stores are a great source for your projects! You really can find some quality products to customize there if you look. Yvonne took some dollar store mugs and turned them into a special memory for the bride and groom.
Since I grew up in California, I have had to consciously look for things I love about Utah winters. Snowflakes are rather pretty. I love the notion that I could put one on a mug like Sarah and enjoy a hot drink inside and avoid being around actual snowflakes outside 🙂 .

The mugs were actually super easy to make and the white vinyl ended up looking amazing on the gold mugs! Here’s how I did it:
