MuG WReCKs

Not all the things I make are good. In fact, many suck eggs. I've decided to share some recent failures with you here.

This was part of a series I was doing using famous quotes.



I guess I should have been more Thoreau in checking my spelling. Just so you know; I do belif in majic.

Here is a mug I was making for next year's Christmas collection.



I don't think Mrs. Claus would be amused.

Finally-here's a mug I just did for Sur La Table.



If you can't figure out why this one is a reject, step back from the computer.

Happy Wednesday Chickens!

HIlarious!

I love the Ho one, that is actually my fiance's last name and I'm still deciding if I am going to take on his last name or not. Do you have any Ho ones for sale?

See people like rejects too!!!

jen said...

how funny - someone with the last name HO wants the cup. too funny.

Rachel@just another day in paradise said...

oh, it's so sad that it took me a minute to get the cook one. . .too funny!

TJ said...

I actually think the ho mug and cook mug might make a good set.

Logical Libby said...

I really love the last one. I think my husband would too...

Susan said...

I love them! I think you should actually sell them!

Miss Thystle said...

I still want the Nativity with the bobble heads or salt and pepper shakers or whatever it was.

And also the RuPaul lipstick fairy.

And a HO mug...LOL.

Kr√ęg said...

Holy crap! That last one is almost funny enough to make me take up drinking coffee.

Amy said...

Hehehe. I love the Ho & the Kiss the... Cook :)

Debbie said...

That Kiss the Cook one reminds me of a Will and Grace episode where Jack was very disappointed to find that an apron really did say Kiss the Cook. He would have loved your mug.

rpc said...

The last one is my all time favorite.

Jen said...

1. Didn't even notice the misspell in the first mug.

2. I'd buy a mug that said "ho" on it.

3. It took me a sec, but once I saw what was wrong with the third mug I laughed so hard I almost peed a little.

Do you smash the rejects or give them to your local Goodwill store (score!) or sell them as rejects, kind of like Lands End's "Not Quite Perfect - Discounted-but-still-not-cheap" website.

I think the last 2 would definitely sell out. Heck I think you could sell a kiln's worth just to us right here. ;-)

3carnations said...

You should offer them as contest prizes. Somebody would love them. :)

tjames said...

I would buy the kiss the cook one for sure... I know many people who would love it for a gift.

The Girl You Don't Bring Home to Momma said...

I know quite a few people I could give the HO cup to, and the Kiss the Cock oops Cook, who wouldn't love that.

Chandra said...

I would buy the last one...my husband would LOVE it!!! As for the Christmas cup, well I know a woman or two that I could give that too as well!

OHN said...

How much do you want for all 3? :)

sheila said...

See, you are pne clever & funny lady. I think that #'s 2 & 3 would make the perfect his & hers wedding gift.

p.s. just purchased a ONIM wine goblet for a friend's bday, and it was a HUGE hit!!

themom said...

Yep, I like the last one best of all!! LOL

Lo said...

Love them all, Lorrie! Thanks for the laugh!

Bj in Dallas said...

I have a button that says HO 3 (to the third power) but I do like the set of Cock and Ho...nothing says Christmas like really bad taste, at least here in Texas.

Two women tried to buy my mug at my garage sale that says 'Get me the Clown Suit' - I should have had a table for your discards!!

le @ thirdontheright said...

Felicia Kramer said...

I'm a day late in catching up but I love them too! Can you still add anything? On the first one, you could add "Believe in spell check" on the other side ...

Nonnee said...

You could find out how much of a sense of humor the execs of Sur La Table have!

Steph said...

I wish my mistakes were this awesome!
