Hi, I'm Kathy. WELCOME to my Happy Land of Mugs!

Mugs have become my own magical canvas for creating empathetic, encouraging, funny and sometimes cathartic sayings to help people feel good, supported, or just to simply laugh! They are also a blank slate for my own inner-thoughts, hopes, and dreams... Oh! And don't forget the sarcasm + humor! (Very important.) My mugs are a huge catalyst for my own self-expression, and my desire to help others to feel creative and express themselves!

I also love mugs because they perfectly encompass my philosophy on product art:
The art that you live with and use in small moments of your day, can have a deeply significant impact on your own well-being and on your outlook on life.

My mug art encourages positivity and good vibes, enriching your life in those simple moments when you are having your morning coffee, evening tea or anything in between! What could be a small, fleeting moment turns into something special, introspective, joyful, and even empowering when you are in tune with your mug! I love coming up with new designs and writing or choosing new sayings. They are colorful and a surprisingly unique and fun way to help you express your thoughts, feelings, opinions and personality everyday, at any time, and for every mood!

Thank you for visiting! I hope you enjoy my mugs!

Hugs + Mugs,

Mug size differences:

I am Kathy, an independent artist. ALL of my mugs and products feature original designs created by me and ONLY me! No clip art, no fonts. All original hand lettering and original illustrated designs. They are special unique gifts from the maker to you, that you won't find anywhere else. Celebrate originality!!!

The mugs I sell are made with my excellent partners Spoke Custom in Atlanta, Georgia. Once you order your mug, I then order it through Spoke and it is created JUST for you! :D It ships from Spoke's headquarters in GA right to you.

My T-shirts are printed and fulfilled by The Printful in California, USA.

I'm with you EVERY step of the way, and I ENCOURAGE you to reach out to ME with ANY questions, comments, feedback or issues of any kind. Your experience shopping and interacting with me is of the UTMOST importance and I take it VERY seriously!! I STRIVE for YOU to experience a FIVE STAR, MOST excellent customer experience HERE with ME!!! :D

---------------------------------VERY IMPORTANT-----------------------------------------
----------------------------------MUG CAUTIONS------------------------------------------
---------------------------------VERY IMPORTANT ----------------------------------------


Creation of your mug (before shipping) CAN TAKE UP TO 4 (FOUR) BUSINESS DAYS PRODUCTION TIME. Please allow for this time when ordering your mugs. Thanks!

Larger orders of more than five mugs can take longer than four business days. Please Convo Kathy before ordering if you need your larger order of mugs on a specific time line.


PLEASE double-check that your address is correct. There have been instances of mugs mailed to old addresses because orders were placed with an old address in the "shipping address" area. I assume your shipping address is active and correct. I also try to ship as quickly as possible. So, when you place your order, 90% of the time it will ship lightning quick and if the wrong address is in there, there is going to be some mug heartbreak. Please avoid mug heartbreak: DOUBLE CHECK YOUR ADDRESS before you place your order.

I cannot be held responsible for lost mugs that have been shipped to P.O. Boxes.

Many P.O. Boxes are not large enough to hold a mug. Therefore storage for your package is unwarranted. Therefore, your mug may go missing , even though it was correctly delivered.

IF you are having your mug shipped to a P.O. Box please be advised that I DO NOT RECOMMEND this.

Mail my mugs to your P.O. Box AT YOUR OWN RISK.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND taking advantage of the "custom note on Packing Slip" option for mugs being mailed as gifts.

IF your mug is being sent as a gift, and you DO NOT leave a message for the recipient on the Packing Slip in “Notes To seller” at checkout, the following will be typed in the Packing Slip note, instead of your personal message:

“This mug was sent to you by (your name here).”

I do this because , if the recipient is not expecting a mug and there is NO NOTE, they will call me and ask me who sent them a mug.


If you are interested in getting alterations to one of my existing mug designs, that is considered a custom mug.

**I do not make alterations to existing mugs, no exceptions.**

If you'd like a custom design for your mug, please see the following listings:

#1: Custom art mug design with UNIQUE design on EACH SIDE of mug:

#2: Custom art mug with SAME design REPEATED on EACH SIDE of mug:

Both listings have ALL details in the listing regarding what is included in the custom mug design, what is NOT included, and how the commission works.


My custom mug designs are 100% HAND DRAWN. They take hours to do. They're a custom illustration commission. My prices reflect this.

I put in the same amount of conceptual work, effort and illustration into each one as I put into all of my mug designs. All this considered, I believe my prices are still very reasonable for custom mug art.

Most "custom" mugs on Etsy charge little to no additional cost for a custom mug. That is because they use fonts that are templated to the mug. It takes a couple minutes to type in a new name.

This is a GREAT option, but this is not what I do. I hand-draw your entire design.

Special situations

Broken mugs (it happens)
If something happens to your mug in transit such as damage, or you do not receive it at all, please snap a pic and convo me, and I will take care of it. :D

Missing mugs marked as "DELIVERED" by DHL or USPS tracking
I do the best I can to serve my mugstomers! However, for obvious reasons, I cannot be held responsible for missing mugs that are scanned as "DELIVERED" according to the Shipping Carriers' tracking information. Please let me know about it though, and I will see what I can do!!

Mugs delivered to the correct address on file, but you had the wrong address in there (oops!)

Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do in cases where a package is shipped successfully to the address which your "shipping address" was populated with at the time of the order. If the new person at the old address does not return the mug to me, then they got a free gift from a secret admirer (you) , unfortunately. But please Convo me to let me know.
