Okay, What if you were a mug?


This one is so unbelievably whacky that I think I have surpassed even myself. Please note, for the purposes of this challenge a ‘mug’ refers to:

A mug is a type of cup used for drinking hot beverages, such as coffee, tea, hot chocolate or soup

as opposed to:

1.Slang for a fool or someone who will do anything for you if you just ask such open the door, run the shop for you etc.

2.slang for a face which doesn’t really appeal to you, someone ugly

3. Any other other use of the word in any other part of the planet.

If you are still unsure, let me confirm, this is the mug to which I refer and it will also be the basis for this challenge.


If you were this mug, which is essentially a blank canvas, how would you decorate it to let the world know it was in fact yours? What would you add to stop your work colleagues stealing it? What would be your catch phrase or picture?

The beauty of this challenge is that you are not even required to write a post if you choose not to. You can simply leave your answer in the comments. If however you do write a post, please don’t forget to link back to this post so we can all see your creation.

Get thinking and good luck 🙂

What if I could be an artist?

ink-27043_640During the last couple months of writing this blog I have realized I may be able to paint a picture with a few words. That realization has brought enjoyment into my life and hopefully a few others as well. Something I have always wished I could do and have never had the talent was an ability to actually draw or paint.

I can set down with an idea and a piece of paper, but what I end up with is a messy sheet with an indistinguishable form on it. Even I will not know what it is I have just drawn. My line I usually tell people about my art skills is

“I’m so bad at drawing, even my stick figures come out crooked”

Sometimes I will see my brother-in-law bring a drawing he just finished to show to my sister and I cry a little on the inside. He can set down with the same idea and paper I had and within minutes he has produced an awesome piece of art. I don’t think he has any idea how jealous I am of this talent he possesses.

Any art on this site you may see I can guarantee is not mine. I only wish I could add some of my own hand drawn sketches to my posts. It would be so much fun if I could add the pictures I have in my head to the words that come out. For now I will just enjoy the words and keep being jealous of the sites I see with personal art and pictures.

If you are one of the bloggers who can draw a great piece of art and then add a wonderful post to it you should know how lucky you are.
