Mother of Puppies, First of Her Name

My family receives many hand-drawn cards and K’s recent birthday was no exception. I had the idea to make him a “coat of arms” type card, which is kind of a thing for sovereign nations or Meghan Markle, but is also a super fun way to make something highly personal. For K, I put in references to travel, skiing, space, and hockey, and humble brag, it turned out awesome. 

 
K’s spirit animal is the bear, who lives in the alpine and eats a lot.

Then we caught wind of these awesome customizable insulated mugs, done by a Canadian company called LAMOSE. We hit up their storefront in Southcentre mall and they engraved the image straight onto a coffee mug! #notsponsored

We got to watch it come to life right in store, which was very cool, and now K has a really sweet coffee mug at work. He reports that the insulation works very well, and the mug is heavy/ stable enough to avoid most tipping ‘incidents’.

Honestly it was such a fun project I kinda want one for myself! I’m not sure what my coat of arms will look like but it will probably involve champagne and puppies. Suggestions?
