be brave mug by kathywellerart

I first drew this mug design late last year. I was at a crossroads in my life. It was what I needed to hear at the time (as is often the case!) so I drew it.

I could tell it was special right away. But how that “specialness” would unfold (and IF it would even unfold at ALL) was a mystery at the time! You ever have that feeling? When you just KNOW something is special, even when no one else recognizes it yet?

So, I decided to format it for a mug.

I released the mug early this year.

Honestly, it barely made a ripple, out of the gate.

There were times when I would scratch my head and wonder why others didn’t yet see the specialness that this mug had to offer.

So I kept plugging away with it, trying to get it in the best position to be seen, then all you can do is wait.

But little by little, it gained fans.

Now, it’s now one of my most popular mugs!!

So, Like the mug says…

Go with your gut.

That’s what I try to be true to in my life! And when I do, it is always the right decision! (This mug is proof !!)
