Introduction to Mug Doodles

I'm Suzette and my husband is Michael. We are two old folks who met a long long time ago in California while serving in the Army. First and foremost - we are crafters. No that's not quite right. We are craftaholics. Addicted. We've been crafting things since our little ones were little. Now they are coming home with littles of their own and we're starting to craft with them also! We're loving it, but we don't see the little ones as often as we would like and there is this void in the house.

We've took over two of the rooms in the house, bought some amazing hardware and started learning about sublimation. We go to conventions for people that do this stuff. At one of the conventions a few years back, Michael ran into an Epilog distributor showing off his Laser. We now have a laser. Last year, I fell in love with a Roland large format printer. The sublimation part of the crafting proved to be popular with the girls and their friends. They encouraged us to venture into the wonderful Etsy world. They'll be thrilled to learn we're working on our own website too!

We've made ceramics, candles, paper things, cards, buttons, magnets, pencils, hangers, paper confetti, engravings, embroidery, mouse pads, coffee mugs, etc. We've done a ton of craft shows, and have usually fared fairly well. Michael is awesome at building me our booths and figuring out awesome ways to package and present our crafted items so that they appear so much more professional than if we had just put them on a table by themselves.

The only thing that has really changed since the girls were little is the equipment that we use has gotten a lot fancier. We're no longer using a standard home style inkjet printer. Nope - we have a nice new fancy wide format Roland VG-540 that can print (and cut) things up to 54" x 150'. We're no longer using a Cameo Silhouette or Cricut. Nope. We've switched to an American Made Epilog Laser. We're no longer using a standard paper cutter - we've got one of those fancy machines that can precisely cut up to 500 sheets of paper at a time. We have decent mug presses and sublimation presses and have proven that we can personally make over 300 coffee mugs in a single 8 hour day.

Currently both Michael and I work full time jobs in addition to running the craft shops. Oh. Did I mention that we have multiple shops here on Etsy? We own and operate a single company called "Creations 101, LLC." Creations has a few "brands" that we are working on. Would you believe that MugDoodles sells Coffee Mugs and Travel Mugs? DIYKraftSupplies sells all things related to craft supplies. DIYPartySupplies sells all things party related (think table decorations, cake / cupcake toppers, signs and banners and so much more for weddings, birthday, reunions, etc). Finally, TwistedCrafters sells everything else (finished crafted items from engraved slates, button pinbacks, engraved pencils, etc). We are blessed to be able to do what we do, and we know it. We hope that we'll be able to have one of us make the switch to a full time business owner sometime later this year.

Between the two of us, we have over 60 years experience crafting in one way or another. We've been there, done that, got the t-shirt. Probably twice. What we're going to offer to you here on Mug Doodles is some of the best mugs and travel mugs on the web. We can customize almost all of them - simply drop us a convo and let us know what you'd like changed!

Mug Doodles is all about crafting... cute... funny... whimsical coffee and tea mugs... and quality that my Mother-in-Law would be proud of.

We're proud to offer original hand crafted items made in Hartford, WI in our smoke free home.

Go ahead - try us out... you won't be disappointed.
