OCTOBER BOOST THE TROOPS CHALLENGE

:D :D :D OCTOBER BOOST THE TROOPS CHALLENGE :D :D :D
HERE WE GO. Its day 1 of the October Boost The Troops Challenge.

This month it is a mug. A mug from one mug to another :lol: :lol: :lol: It doesnt matter what it is made of as long as it holds hot drinks. Metal, plastic or pot. You must decorate it & personalise it in your own unique way. Paint, write,stick transfers on & dangle anything that your heart desires Let your imagination go wild. You can do it & make a fab result so every time they drink from it there is a part of your love in their hands & on their lips. What an item eh. ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

You must also put a spoon & some tea bags or sachet of coffee (the type they have never tried before) in it with a very posh wrapped biscuit which is going to make their first drink very special indeed. Laugh as you do it & they will have a good laugh when he/she gets it. Keep updating on here as to your progress & what your one is like. Try & do more than 1 so that your love can give others to mates & troops that dont get one. Spread the joy. :D :D :D Hey we all want to get real belly laughs & lots of grins. They will love it.

The postal date is October 9th so they all get them approximately the same time.

Wrap it with care so it doesnt get damaged. On the back of the parcel write in huge letters MUGSHOT to tease both posties, parcel handlers & them as to its contents.

You must put in the parcel a message that they must send you a photo back of them drinking your special cuppa.

Put snapshots of your mug on here before you send it. Give everyone a chuckle. I look forward to seeing your mad mugs.
ENJOY & GET FAMILY & FRIENDS & KIDDIES TO DO THEM. :lol: :lol: :lol:
:lol: :lol: :lol: ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET.....GO GO GO GO GO GO my lovelies :D :D :D

Re: OCTOBER BOOST THE TROOPS CHALLENGE

Well done Andrew,
What does it look like :D I am sure its arrival will be a true boost. It will be interesting for you to get the photo he sends back. I hope you enjoyed doing it & found it fun. Maybe you can put a photo of it on here. We would all love to see it. If you have the time perhaps you could do another for your loved one to give to a mate. :lol: :D :lol: :D :lol: :D

Re: OCTOBER BOOST THE TROOPS CHALLENGE

Linda it always starts on 1st of each month so unfortunately you will have to wait till then or send yours a couple of days late but the challenge is to get it done in the time allocated so they all get them approx same time :D I never give out the item to be done till day 1 or it wouldnt be a Challenge would it but hey he would love to get your mug spoon tea bag & biccie so get going :D :D :D :D :D :D You will adore doing it & you can be certain it will boost him up tons so go go go. This is the last time i make allowances for it. Slap your wrist.
Enjoy hun & take a pic before you send it & put it here. Cant wait to see your art work :lol: Dont forget to tell him to send you a photo back to prove hes used it once. Bet hes got huge beams on his face to show you how he feels.
Big hugs, Judith xxxx

Re: OCTOBER BOOST THE TROOPS CHALLENGE

Hi Everyone
I'm a bit late checking this out but I'll do my best.
Just to let you know my son says "Bloomers" arrived OK last week and quite a few guys have received them so at some point a photo from them will be winging its way back.
