When the school year started it was the first time both kids were in school all day. I had so many people ask me what I was going to do with myself. Was I going to hate the quiet, empty house? I adore my kids, but I can get so much more done with a bit of quiet and a lot of coffee. I think most moms are this way. If you asked them what they would most like on any given day, a hot cup of coffee and some peace and quiet would be high on the list. This Mother’s Day, make Mom a hand-painted coffee mug and pair it with 1850 Brand Coffee for a gift she will really appreciate!
Making a hand-painted mug doesn’t have to be difficult, complicated, or expensive. These glass paint markers only cost a few bucks. First, wipe the mug down with rubbing alcohol to clean the surface of dirt and grime. Then, draw a design or write a saying on the mug. If you mess up along the way, keep paper towel and rubbing alcohol on hand to erase the marker and start over. When you are happy with your design let it dry for 4 hours. Then cure the paint marker by placing it in a COOL oven. Set temperature to 325°F, bake for 30 minutes, and then cool with oven door partially open. Now you have a dishwasher-safe mug that you painted yourself!
Mothers make a million important decisions every day. Every choice we make has implications for us and for our children. It is exhausting. That’s just one of the reasons we love coffee so much!
Back in 1850, J.A. Folger started something new and innovative to help the gold prospectors as they sought their fortunes. While I personally am not heading out West to do some serious gold prospecting, I am hustling hard in my self-owned business. There’s still no better way to get moving than with a bold-yet-smooth cup of coffee. 1850 Brand Coffee is the official coffee of bold people fueling original ideas, new commitments, and brave endeavors!
I found this new premium coffee from the makers of Folgers on a recent trip to Meijer. 1850 Brand Coffee is available in four signature blends, so I chose to try out Black Gold and Pioneer Blend. My favorite part is that the coffee has coffee shop strength, but the beans are not exclusively dark roasted. I like that having that same blod kick in a variety of blends. Visit Meijer from 5/6 – 6/2 and take $1 off any 1850 Brand Coffee Product with the mPerk digital coupon (while supplies last).
