{Another Giveaway!} - Enjoying My Photos

If anyone knows truly me, they know I have a bit of a camera problem.   My good lens was busted last year for about 3 months, and I felt lost without my Nikon neck buddy.  Don't get me wrong, I take my fair share of pics on my iphone, but there is something about uploading 100+ pics form any given day and going through them, reliving the experience (and deleting the not-so-flattering moments!)
My pictures dont just sit on my hard drive...I love using my photos. I print pics and canvases to hang in our home, I create personalized birthday cards, calendars and holiday cards with them and now I've had the opportunity to make another fun thing for myself. 

Right now is when you re-read the first line of this post and replace camera with coffee.  Go ahead. I'll wait.

Back?  OK.  Yes, I have a coffee problem.  I. LOVE. COFFEE.  Coffee flavored anything works. Coffee ice cream, coffee flavored desserts (tirimisu, anyone?), coffee milkshakes.

I recently gifted myself a Keurig and have been stocking up on cute coffee mugs to use at my little coffee station.  VivoPrint graciously allowed me to try out their service of creating fun projects from photos.  They have so many items to choose from - phone cases, keychains, jewelry boxes, etc.  You can probabaly guess that I had a few photo coffee cups made up for myself.  I chose the 10oz ceramic tumbler and had the same photo of my boys repilcated several times around the mug.  These tumblers are great compared to the usual handled mug.  I have several others shaped like this at home, so I was excited to see that this was one of VivoPrint's options.  If you like handles, fear not, they offer regular ol' mugs, as well.

The quality of this mug is great! The photo image is crisp and the colors are brilliant.  The mug is also dishwasher safe and can be microwaved - which is awesome if you're me, and you have to reheat your coffee about 4 times before you finally get to finish it.  One good thing to know is if you choose this item, the design doesn't fully wrap around the mug.  I may have selected a single wider photo had I known this, but I still love my results and I've used my new mugs several times each already!
