Let me introduce you to one beautiful lady, both inside and out. Say hello to Katie, the talent behind Mug Love, an adorable Etsy Shop full of, you guessed it, MUGS!
In her shop Katie sells both hand painted and vintage mugs but you'll never guess what she prefers to sip on when cuddled on the couch with one of her Mug Love items. Check out her Q&A and her awesome giveaway below.
When and why did you decide to open an Etsy shop?
I started this shop in 2012. I am a vintage lover and wanted to start selling them.
How did you develop a passion for mugs?
When I went to thrift stores, I always went to the mug section. They were always something I was drawn to.
What inspires your mug designs?
I think was inspires me are trends I will see or simply every day things.
How do you find your vintage mugs?
I find my vintage mugs at local thrift stores or when I'm traveling, I'll try to find some there.
What's your favorite thing to drink from a mug?
Juice!! I think people assume that since I sell mugs I would be a coffee lover but juice is my thing.
Outside of designing and selling adorable vintage mugs, what do you like to do in your free time?
I really enjoy spending time with my loved ones. I also started my photography business K.A Photography earlier this year and LOVE taking photos!
If you were to kick back and relax with one of your mugs, describe how that scene would look at your house.
I would definitely be kicking my feet up on the couch with a blanket watching The Office with my boyfriend Ezra and our three kiddens (our cats) and of course there would be juice in my cup!
What else should we know about you, your mugs, and/ or your Etsy shop?
One quote I love is "Always go after what you want even if it feels impossible." I used to struggle with keeping a dream or an idea I had. I always thought it was impossible but with advice from the people in my life, you should always go after what you love or want and that's what I did with Mug Love. Having a dream is easy. Following your dream and making it come true is hard but its not impossible. If you keep at it, it'll pay off and that's my dream for my shop.
