For when you want to be subtle. I bought this for myself, and I absolutely loved it! Here’s a promising review:

This cup was the perfect gift! It came just as expected, shiny, bright and very cuppy! The paint is clear and vibrant and appears to be well crafted. This was purchased more as a desk item to hold pens, and less as a coffee cup, but you could totally use it for its intended purpose.

I like to write in my free time as a way to escape/distress, but unfortunately all those who write know there’s always the possibility of hitting a roadblock, and honestly aside from making me giggle with the jokes and artwork; this deck does a pretty good job of giving me ideas of ways/suggestions to get out of my slumps!
