  1. I like the tutorial. Here in the land of I rarely buy coffee to go I may not use one so much, but you may have to have one waiting for me, for my visit...... I'll trade you for a coat.....

  2. I think this is really cute, am going to have to try it out, while I have cut back on my starbucks visits, they still happen, and i really hate the cardboard ones, just so not pretty! Hope you are recovered from the bike ride, your poor leg!!

  3. I agree (sadly. only becasue I want easier access to starbucks!) with Corinnea. But they are really really cute !
