Something that catches my eye, a comment that someone makes and I think:
wow, that was nice, or that was really well put, thoughtful.
I am blessed to have many of these comments. ;-)
Some thing that makes you smile...
The next such product was one of these items that instantly made me smile.
I can’t tell you how many times I have knocked over a cup of coffee and it is a cartoonist nightmare! I think it was earlier this year I fried my keyboard! So, I like a good mug!
A wide base! Just like my BONG! Then I saw this! A Zang Pipe Mug! < click!
Instantly, I loved them - well the ‘look’ anyhow... I wondered how well it would work.
Hand crafted clay! (It is a dream of mine to own a pottery wheel and kiln - I STILL remember doing it in HIGH school!) AND a Pipe Mug to boot! LOL- It made me smile.
From there I checked out the site, youtube video - made me smile again, and checked out the FB page. Was led to a beautiful little gallery that I shall add to my bucket list!
I ‘got a feel’ for the PIPE Mug People ;) so I thought.
I e mailed them, told them I liked the mugs, would they be interested in working together - just the thought of the mug made me giggle and would give me a toon idea I’m sure.
Well, talk about enthusiasm - I got a phone call only a short while later!
It was a fellow from Pipe Mugs and he was happy to talk business!
I was thrilled!! - I WAS ALSO drawing - my remembrance day toon and had to get it done.
I told him I could not even think of this conversation right now. ;-) Luckily he 'got' that. WE chatted and I instantly also liked the positive energy - by the end of the conversation - my mug was on it’s way!
Here is the thing. I did tell him * there is a small detail...
IF I DO NOT like your product I will not promote it. It also is hard for me to draw for something I do not believe in.. Simple.
A couple of days later and my mug arrived! It is 100% true the instant I saw it,
I SMILED! 1st mission accomplished! I was running for the kettle to have a tea, 3 in the afternoon, no coffee for me. I giggle that my first thought was not to medicate- but it wasn’t. I LOVE it as a mug! I have a problem with cold hands and this mug is like a good snuggle! Both hands! It’s nice and big. THEN the test... the one I doubted would really work. Guess what ... I was wrong - Yes. I said it. LOL IT was smooth!
I will admit It took me a few tries , got out my hempwick <click ;) and positioned it just right and it is a really NICE smooth pipe! It took several tries, I have mastered it I believe.
I am impressed on a several levels. 2 weeks later.. I use it daily still. I can’t wait to try a pipe bowl!! I still LOVE my happy face mug that I have had FOREVER - It’s a McCoy, you can still find them on ebay. Google Happy face mug MCCoy
As much as I love my Pipe Mug something was missing...
I fixed that! ;) A neat way to display if I do say so myself.
*The flower is attached to a pipe cleaner!
Good way to keep your mug clean and dust free!!!
If it ever gets the chance to get dusty! LOL.
They have an awesome collection and are full of ideas! Honestly, I do use my bong the most during the day to medicate and I have been trying drops.. more on that later.
But, I love my mug- well enough to use it with out using it! LOL
I was inspired by ZANG and the guys who operate it.
I thank them. We all need to just smile from time to time.
Oh! The Carburetor hole, I blow in there before I wash my mug and then use
super hot water.
