Gummy bears and red wine (Montepulciano) are a strange combination for any self-respecting foodie, but they were the first things that I decided to enjoy on my very first scrappy reversible Mug Mat!

Honestly, I prefer calling it a Mug Rug, but either way, its purpose remains the same. I made it out of the literal scraps that I had remaining from my latest quilt. It was a fun little project, and I was finished in under an hour from start to finish, thanks to a quite a few World Cup distractions…

I’m pleased with the result, especially because I created something useful out of something many others might have thrown away. What a wonderful feeling!

Sending Love and Light to you all.

I write contemporary Romance that often centers around our most joyous occasions – holidays – and the stories tend to have a “clean and wholesome” feel. My books have multicultural main characters that are strong-willed and purpose-driven, and there is always a happily-ever-after (HEA). The stories vary in heat-level, from sweet NA first-love romantic stories to contemporary romances with a dash of suspense and tastefully heated, sensual moments.
