Coffee cup sleeves

I love my local coffee shop. They are exceptionally efficient without sacrificing customer service.  Always happy always nice, and the coffee is always good.  One thing that bothers me though is that they put a paper sleeve on every paper coffee cup.

Generally I feel guilty enough already that I did not bring my own mug.  Since coffee for me is generally an unscheduled stop, I am usually unprepared.  I felt extra bad that they were putting a paper sleeve on each disposable cup!  I used to try to ask them not to, but someone further down the line would end up slapping one on.  I would always take it off and leave it on the table, but I felt like it was a battle that I just didn't want to wage for a cup of coffee.

So I decided to make a coffee cup sleeve for myself.  One that I could reuse and take with me every time I went to get coffee.  My glove compartment could now have one reusable sleeve, rather than the floor of the passenger side of my car hosting 20 paper sleeves waiting to make it to the recycling.

It has really been that simple.  I get compliments on them every time I get coffee, and no more paper sleeves!  Coffee shops in my area are picking them up, and they are of course for sale in the Etsy store!

You can find them in the Coffee cup sleeves  section on Etsy, or you can custom order one in any size or color!

They not only look great, but the keep your coffee warm and your hands cool!  All for an awesome price!

Busy busy busy!

I have been crocheting like mad to have new product available for tomorrow's Hip Happening!  More garlands, more necklaces and some new surprises!  I love making new things and expanding Nuala's product line.

These are some of the mandalas for a garland that I will be putting together today.

Not the best picture as it is taken with my cellphone with the pieces on my lap, but they are fairly true to color.  Much cuter in person though.

Hope to see you all at Hip Happening tomorrow!
