The Lady BEHIND the Mugs!


Okay, I have to admit...
I LOVE getting new mugs.
And I'm weirdly obsessed with a particular blogger who makes the coolest ones ever!
She actually made me a personalized mug and it was adorable... but I dropped it and I'm heartbroken.
{I will be ordering a new one!}

Today, I introduce you to the lady behind the mugs!!

***************************


Hi M2M&R Readers! I am Gracie B from Betwixxt {shop & blog}. I am here today to tell you a little bit about little ole me what I do. I am a really nerdy, gamer girl who loves fashion, food and thriftin and who dreamed that one day she would either grow up to be a fashion designer or the wife of Danny Zuko. 

I have always loved making art. But there is definitely a reason that the phrase “Starving Artist” exists. I mean ramen is not great for you if your having it from Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Right? So I looked for a way to make my art and love of all things pretty and nerdy more practical. So as an experiment I made a few custom coffee mugs and with one sale after another coffee mugs began to take over my life. 


My Ron Swanson tribute mug really just started because it entertained me to do one. I made it for myself and used it for about a month before I decided to photograph them and produce them. It to date is my most popular. It has also led to the custom portrait mugs like the one I did for my fabulous host Mrs. Lena


I really am a huge nerd. I love, like LOVE, Dr. Who. Kind of obsessed really. So it has been so fun to make many variations of Dr. Who mugs. The Dalek’s in Love is really my favorite.


A client who was getting married asked if I had anything custom I could do for bridesmaids. This was when that little girl in me got very excited. I could do fashion sketches! And So I did. 

There are so many new things that are coming up from my shop. New art prints, Pin back buttons, new sets of coasters and of course all new mug designs. Get all the sneak peeks by following me on my blog or keeping a close eye on the shop. I am so grateful to be in this business where handmade artists are appreciated. Its very humbling to get photos from clients of them using one of my mugs. 

Thank you Lena for letting me take over momentarily.
