Do It: Things I Buy On Etsy #3
Ok I am fully aware that what I am about to tell you may cause you to stop following me and possibly make you a bit ill, but here is my morning routine:
My husband wakes up at about 5:30, I think. There is no way to know for sure as I am still very much asleep. He tries not to make too much noise and wake me up while he gets ready for work, bless him. At about 6:45 I wake up to the sound of the coffee grinder, and after a few minutes I will grab my phone from the nightstand and with one eye slightly open, I check the time. Now here is the worst part, while my husband is making his lunch in the kitchen, I text him one word: COFFEE. A few minutes later he comes down the hall with my coffee (1 ½ packets of Stevia and a splash of 2% milk) in my favorite mug with my favorite mug cozy. I know, I am the worst sort of princess; lazy and demanding, but he does it, so what does that say about him? (Don’t tell him I said that)
I spend the next several minutes propped up in my bed with pillows sipping my coffee, checking email and planning my day. What is a better motivator than a good cup of coffee first thing in the morning? A cup of coffee that tells you to Do Epic Shit!
This is knotworkshop and one of my favorite shops on Etsy. She calls herself a hooker, and man what a hooker she is! I imagine she can crochet in her sleep, and her fingers must be worn down to the nubs. In her shop you will find a plethora (yeah that’s right, I said plethora) of mug cozies, ipod cases, gloves, scarves and more. Her work is not just funny, smart, and bright, it is also very well made. Knotworkshop is a quality hooker folks. So go check out her shop ASAP and give your cup of coffee a makeover and maybe, just maybe, you will Do Epic Shit on a daily basis just like me.
