  1. Abbi,
    Where did you purchase the coffee mug you used for the hallmark mug? Also, how long does the vinyl last, and can it be microwaved and is it dishwasher safe ?

    1. I purchased my mug from Michaels craft stores. I would only hand wash the mugs. If you wash my hand they should last many months or longer. 🙂

  2. Hi Abby,
    Which Circut model did you use? I would like to buy a Cricut, but I am overwhelmed by the models or styles.
    Thank you for your help.
