  1. Cool !!! I like this idea. I guess you could do any design you wanted. I think for just a gift anytime a butterfly would be cool. I thought of you Saturday when I was shopping with my sisters and I got this huge cup at Michael’s. Thought it would hold a lot of coffee. Have a good week. You are the best Lindsay.
