happy birthday coffee


I'm a big fan of coffee...did you know that?

Evidently, since I'm a fan, I naturally think everybody else is too!

LOL

Here's a quick and easy giftie for a coffee lover:


Iced Coffee!
{my iced coffee drink has been stamped on an upcycled coffee sleeve}

That to-go cup reminds ME of an iced coffee...probably for most peoples it is soda {or do you call it pop?!}.

Jane's Doodles


The polkas are stamped...I like that little touch on the giftie bag...which I took apart and customized for the Vias.

Jane's Doodles


I love my Timeless Twine...it's perfect for packaging!



Thanks so much for stoppin' by!

You? Coffee? This I didn't know :)
I am always a little surprised when I find someone doesn't drink coffee - it's just something that is SO part of my morning I can't imagine not having it.
*shudder* I just imagined it. Oy!
Making that cup into an iced coffee cup? That's genius! Love how paper-pieced some coffee into it!
And as for the soda/pop thing - I say pop. Hubby says pop. Oldest son says pop. Youngest son - soda. And it drives me crazy mental. I don't know WHY it drives me nuts, but seriously, EVERYONE ELSE CALLS IT POP. IT'S POP. CALL IT POP! lol
I've been known to say 'no' to having pop just because he's asked for soda. "sorry, all we have is POP." You little weirdo ;)
Anyway.
I hope that made you giggle! Happy Monday :)

Soda... I call it soda -- which is weird, cause I am from NY and they all call it Pop there! LOL! :) I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee this!! Just genius!!

Love your giftie. I like coffee and I call it Soda. Most folks here in Minnesota call it Pop so I think I got Soda from my California roots.

SugarGem said...

This is so cute. I really love that stamp set I think I need it. The iced coffee is fabulous idea. I was just talking about the soda/pop thing the other day. Is the West Coast the only place that says pop? When I was in nyc I swear I spoke another language no one understood half the things I said. I asked a lady at the Museum gift shop if they had anything with caffeine cuz I was tired. She looked at me like I was crazy and said "oh no ma'am you need a pharmacy for that“ ha! Crazy west coaster on the east coast.

Now, that is the best thing ever! And I love that twine color combo - happy colors indeed! In my neck of the woods, we call that fizzy stuff "soda" but I have been to places where they call it pop or "coke" (no matter what brand you are drinking).
