Starbucks Mug Rug and Mug Swap

This is the mug rug that I made for my {secret} partner in the Spring Round of the Starbucks Mug Rug and Mug Swap.  

You swap a Starbucks You are Here Mug, along with a mug rug.  My partner really wanted a New Orleans mug, which I happen to have an extra of, so...she's getting it! I will say, although the swap was on both Flickr and Instagram, I much prefer Flickr.  I know the app is less than desirable, but my partner had a private IG account.  Really? How am I supposed to stalk you with a private IG?

Lesson learned - no IG swaps for me. If it isn't Flickr, I'm not doing it.  Another reason for that is because I feel like the IG swaps are a bit more willy-nilly, yes, such a technical definition.  It's just that on IG I think they go for volume and not necessarily a good match.  I'm in quite a few private swaps with girls I admire and respect and who appreciate the time it takes to make something, but this has a different flavor.

Oh well, I made a mug rug in her favorite colors, and I hope it is well received!
It feels good to move another project to the completed list.
