Love your work! I bought a mug at Tilthouse for my wife that said “mom” all over it, it was a really nice mug and she loved it. She dropped it and broke it. I attached some pics of it. I was wondering if you make them regularly or if not could you make another one like it for me (for Christmas)…I thought it was just perfect. Anyway you can let me know. And have a Merry Christmas.”
