Hi everyone,

Just wanted to post this pic of a special Christmas gift my oldest daughter, Stephanie, gave me as a surprise. She drew and painted on the mug at a Paint and Clay shop. I love it!!

and at my age - it's so tiny, I can't even see it. sigh.

ETA: WOW - That is so awesome! I love it! I just came back in and saw it for the first time today.

OK Guys - going to try it again. Looks like the image is way different when I'm looking at it.

ok...think it's better now....

Nope, still itty-bitty. Try to make it about 300 pixels or so.

12-29-2005, 01:02 AM
That's strange - it was 500 pixels - now it's 1000 - any different?


12-29-2005, 01:10 AM
That did it, now it looks fabulous! Wow, where can I get one of those mugs?

12-29-2005, 01:13 AM
That's great Charlie! Steph helped me with getting the pic right! Yay!

Hey, I'll put in a special order for her to make you one!

Haha, that's pretty cool. Which one is you and which one is your daughter?

Which one is you and which one is your daughter?

That's what I was going to ask! :D

Oooh, I'd love one of those mugs. Lucky you, Debbie! :)

Super picture, Cabbie, Deb. And Steph made the mug great! You guys look terrific. :Hug2:

I love it! Let us know if she goes into production. Lucky you!

Looks like I'm going to have to take orders for Stephanie! lol It is beautiful though, isn't it? And she even has an inscription on the back. I won't be using it for my tea or coffee though! I have it standing next to a SoS book on a cabinet in our living room. http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif

That is AWESOME work! Your daughter is very talented. It's also a very special gift...straight from the heart! It was very thoughtful and supportive of her. I don't have to ask if your Christmas was great...I can see that it was.

Take care! I wish everyone a very prosperous and joyous New Year!
