You guys are the best! So many of you have purchased my Christmas Pocket Mug Rug pattern and I want to say “THANK YOU”! I’m very flattered and really just surprised. And inspired. Which is all a good thing.
In return, I have a great mug rug poem to share with you that was written by the daughter of one of my blog readers. Terri Costa and her daughter, Angie Costa, have been busy making mug rugs for friends and family. Many people don’t know what a mug rug is, so Angie made up this little poem to go along with the gift:
This is a mug rug.
What’s that, you say?
It’s a tiny placemat to use every day.
Use it for coffee, juice or tea.
And when you use it, you can think of me!
I (with my Mom) made this for you
to use for the holidays and the whole year through.
I was given permission to share this poem with you, and I made a little printout for you to download. I tweaked a few of the words just a bit so that it would work for anyone (not just mother/daughter). I’m sure you’ll like it as much as I did!

I made the poem in two colorways; one is traditional and the other one is modern and bright. You’ll notice the shape of the words looks like a Christmas tree so we rolled with that (Terri and Angie’s idea). You could always use the poem in your own way, since it’s appropriate for any time of year.
I tied mine around the handle of a mug with some ribbon (don’t forgot to sign your name as I did). The mug rug plus some treats are tucked inside the mug.
Thanks again for all of your support. I hope you enjoy this little mug rug poem. And thank you to Angie and her mom, Terri, for sharing it with all of us!
