Bumping  this  up. How's  everyone  doing?  Anyone care to share a sneak peek of material?  Any hints?
Undesided


So next time I do one of these I'll  try to remember NOT to share swap names. doh

pick up pretty coffee cups through the year and come xmas team a mug with a mug rug and make a batch of fancy hot choc or coffee mix to go with them. Package it in little bags inside the mug, wrap it all in cellophane, xmas gifts - any markets you could sell them at?
