pizap.com14531366645581Don’t you just wish that January would take a hike? I’m all for the new year, but right now I’m sick of getting up in the dark, and coming home in the dark; I feel like a mole,never seeing the light.

The first thing I do when I get home at the moment is to light the stove and make a cup of tea. This is an old T Shirt Studio number that’s been through the mill so many times, but testament to the durability of our wares. The colour hasn’t faded although it’s sat outside in the garden for weeks on end, been through my rickety old dishwasher and generally not been very well cared for. Still, it welcomes me home and keeps me warm. You’ve got to love it for that.

IMAG0759My Facebook feed is just full of smug little critters I barely know reminding me that there are only 5 Fridays until Christmas, or 39 sleeps or 3 roast dinners or 2 stubbed toes and things like that. I want to punch them. However, it does make me think that there’s one thing that can make Christmas less of a headache and that is knowing you’ve got a whole lot of gifts sorted.

My favourite thing from T-Shirt Studio for a gift is a coffee mug with either a picture or a slogan on it. Easy and useful, it can be a picture of a loved one, or a crap yet cute drawing, or something funny, designed to cause hilarity. Either way, it’s good to know there’s a whole range of options right at your fingertips. And for total peace of mind, check out our delivery times here. Coming up to Christmas, we gets busier and busier and the poor postman is run ragged, so the sooner you get around to it the better and smugger you’ll be!

It’s International Women’s Day, which is a platform to celebrate and encourage women the world over to inspire themselves. And to be pissed off at tampon tax and unequal pay and not to be able to take safety for granted. You’d think that in the 21st Century, women wouldn’t need their own International Day, but they do, and you only need to flick your eyes across the top news stories to see that our increasingly developed world is becoming more like the Dark Ages every day.

So, to celebrate and encourage women, here’s a choice quote on a mug. This line by Janis Joplin isn’t just about feminism, it’s about everyone equally, which is kinda the point I guess.

So this all came about when I read an article in the Independent the other day listing some of the most cringeworthy lines from 50 Shades of Grey. It was one of those terrible moments when I couldn’t stop reading even though I knew that I would never get that time back. I think I lost a bit of my breakfast onto the computer screen. Or was it my brain! Obviously, the phenomenon that is EL James doesn’t give a flying fart if her prose made me do a sicky, she’s sold megamillions of her mommy porn master(bate)piece. I kinda wish she knew the pain she was causing tho.

Anyway the lovely Violet has mocked up a mug to celebrate the most overused, oversexed sentences in the book. Now there’s no escaping, we are, quite literally, bound to it forever. Yeah, thanks for that Violet! My tea bag will never look at me in the same way again! Ew.

So, I ran out of coffee yesterday and didn’t have my morning caffeine shot today. It was so very needed (after Friday night especially) and I had a withdrawal headache (of course not a hangover) so I went out and gorged on espressos until even the coffee cups were palpitating. Apparently coffee has a half life, a bit like uranium. In fact, the strength I drink the stuff, it’s probably more lethal than uranium, and if it gets me up in the morning, it could more than power a few nuclear plants.

So this is a little homage mug to my day today. Our mugs are only a fiver, so perfect for pepping up your essential coffee break. Take a look. Then take a swig, and you’ll start to feel almost human again!¬†

It’s been a long week this one. Statistics show that January is definitely the longest month, with about 53 days, mostly Mondays, and hardly any weekends. The weather has been atrocious, the world’s a mess and if you’re still keeping up your New Year’s Resolution then it’s only because you were canny and resolved to drink more.

Still, here at TShirt Studio we’re soldiering on, even though our humour is ¬†akin to the dregs of the limescale in the kettle…pretty flakey and fairly tasteless. So here’s a good weekend mug for you. Our mugs are amazing value….still only a fiver, a bargain when you think of the wry grin you get every time you look at it. Countdown to the weekend……we’re nearly there, honest!!!

One of my favourite mug kinds of personalised mug is the morning coffee ‘arrrghhhh I don’t want to get up’ kind of slogan. There are loads of these around, or you can make up your own.

This is one of my all time favourites….and it makes a great gift or just a little treat for yourself. Write it yourself, or use one of our fonts…..or force a small child to write it for you….there’s something more bleary about a five year old’s handwriting!

Here I am, drinking tea (gin) out of maybe the worst slogan mug ever, wondering if there is anything more cringeworthy than this. I feel soiled and really, but really hope that noone thinks I’m drinking from this out of choice, tho in this line of business, hopefully everyone know’s we get the cast offs!

Today’s thought is….. what is the worst slogan ever invented? Not just those out to shock ones, but really the most tragic piece of written soundbite (writebite) ever to be slapped on the porcelain?

Having survived our Christmas bash and made it through the storms, it’s just time for a quick brew before we get into the Christmas spirit.

Currently reviving one of our Christmas favourites, the so called ‘milk and two sugars’ mug, this one has your own specifications written on the side, so as whoever has the nice job of making the tea slash coffee has to get it exactly right, with no excuses.

Here’s mine, fussy and to the point! Make it so!!!
