Part 1. Time ~20 seconds:
Why is your favourite mug your favourite? If you have more than one favourite, what’s the common theme?
Example: My favourites all remind me of special stories in my life. Either ones I’ve made with messages from the faeries or ones gifted to me.. from Disneyland!
Write a sentence as if you are the mug beginning with “I am…
♫ Hum de dum ♫ I’ll have a sip of tea while you finish..
We had some fun on facebook when I posted this activity.
Kate: I only drink coffee out of the Bunnykins mugs
The message she discovered from her mug: “I retain a sense of childlike wonder” 🙂
Michael Topic: My favourites have bears on them.
The message: “Mine says that I am strong, kindly, but prefer to remain unmolested. :D”

Hope Mikal: I have two favourite mugs. One is inherited from Jordan’s grandfather, it is a piece of art. It looks like a old man with a beard and a fish is jumping which makes the handle. My second one is a to go mug with a special little tea steeping part attached, it is pretty and green. I get excited to use it! =)
The message: “I am a good friend.”

Una Connor: I rotate mugs often, break them and try not to get too attached. However, I see a theme: it’s comfort, and convenience, does it hold enough to completely fill my bladder, does it touch my lips just so? Will I end up with yet another coffee stained shirt and lap? There are so many options, and not one can look like the other or I hide them away in the back pantry until it’s mate or sibling gets broken.
The message: Mine says “I like to reinvent myself and strive for perfect imperfection while trying to maintain some kind of dignity in a world that doesn’t often acceprt different.” (click Una’s name to see her unique artworks and book)
And my mugs’ messages: “I am full of messages that are simple yet when really heard, magical. I am the pause when fully sipped brings a chance to believe in more. I am the imagination made practical and drinkable.”
Oh, I like my mugs. They are wise.
