Ferrero Rocher Mug

I had a crazy end to my holiday weekend!  On Sunday morning, I got up early to make the drive into Pittsburgh to have breakfast with my daughter before getting on the road to head home.  My plan — as always — was to beat the heavy traffic.  We had breakfast and I was on the road before 8:00am (though I really wanted to stay and play).  Traffic was pretty normal coming across the turnpike.  Even with a rest stop, I was on schedule to be home by about 12:30.  As I transitioned from the turnpike up the ramp to the interstate, my car felt a little sluggish as I merged into heavy traffic.  I thought if I slowed down just a moment that it would right itself.  Nope! The check engine light began to flash (that’s never happened before) and I looked for a place to pull over.  Good thing I did!  By the time I pulled off (we’re talking seconds here), the car had stopped running.  Unfortunately, even though the guys at the garage tried — it’s a goner.

But, I’m thankful for so many outcomes related to this event:

  • I wasn’t involved in an accident.
  • No one and nothing was hurt.
  • It was a car that we will not have to replace.
  • The guys at the garage were just great on a holiday weekend.
  • The State Trooper that parked behind me until the tow truck came –  caused traffic to slow down which made the wait less nerve wracking!
  • And finally, it didn’t break down before I was able to visit my daughter.

I hope your holiday was a little less eventful!

Today, I’ve begun working on some little favors, RAKs, thank yous — whatever you prefer to call them.

They’re little mugs that hold a Ferrero Rocher chocolate.

I was inspired by a similar creation designed by Bibi Cameron.  Of course, I changed mine up a little bit.

This is a perfect, simple way to create a little gifty and to use some of your designer paper!

I’ve used This Christmas specialty designer paper to make my mugs.

I love that there are 4 of each of the 6 double sided designs!  That means I have enough of each design to make large batches that are the same.  Perfect when creating for an occasion or group!

For my base, I layered a piece of Garden Green cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits over a piece of Cherry Cobbler cut with the Layering Circles Framelits.

That stitched accent is such a pretty detail!

“Thank You” is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is inked in Garden Green on Very Vanilla.  The tag was cut with the Classic Label Punch.

I’ve finished the mug with a bit of Gold Bakers Twine and some sprigs cut with the Pretty Pines Thinlits.

A perfect, easy “thank you”, RAK or table favor this holiday season!
