Craft Fair Goodies: Snowman Soup

I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend. We sure did! Friday night I got to scrapbook with my friend Jen, drink wine & eat take out. FUN :) The rest of the weekend we did things around the house - I crafted & Pete was working on remodeling our attic. It was great to just be at home & get things done! I wanted to share with you my latest creation for upcoming Fairs this Fall... Here is this year's version of "Snowman Soup". I created just a few of these last year and they sold out pretty quick. I decided that I wanted to change it up a bit this year & see if I could find a mug to put the ingredients in. I was able to find plain white mugs at the Christmas Tree Shop for a very reasonable price.

Closeup of the poem that is hanging from the handle, which reads:

Heard you've been real good this year, Always glad to hear it! With freezing weather drawing near, you'll need to warm the spirit...

Here's a little snowman soup complete with stirring stick Just add hot water, sip it slow it's sure to do the trick!

Note: I got this poem from SCS - it is not my original creation.

I used Rub-On's that I found at Michael's to decorate the mug. They went on nicely, but I am concerned about durability. I think these mugs are going to be "hand wash only" - unless I can figure out how to seal the rub-on onto the mug. Does anyone have any tips on a good sealant that will look decent?
