Plaidypus Spotted in the Coloradoan!

Coloradoan gift guide featuring plaidypus felted coffee cup cozy

The Coloradoan (Fort Collins’ local newspaper) has a gift guide every year to give people ideas and inspiration for their holiday gifts. It’s full of gifts for him and gifts for her and gifts for food lovers and gifts for children and gifts for pets and gifts for pretty much every other person and for every reason you can think. I’m sure there’s a page in there that is dedicated to gifts for that one relative that you never talk to but feel the need to get them something they were nice to you as a kid.

Anyway, this guide came out on Black Friday, and Plaidypus is in it! Sure, it claims I make felted wood cup cozies (which, in case you were wondering, isn’t a thing) rather than felted wool ones, but it wouldn’t be a true feature without a glaring typo (right?). And publicity is publicity, so I’m not complaining.

Here’s the bit of the page that is dedicated to our (now famous) felted wool (not wood) coffee cup cozies.

And here it is in context of the full page:

That’s like a whole 1/8 of a page! Which doesn’t seem like much, but considering I didn’t have to pay anything for this opportunity and that an ad that size can cost a fortune, I’m pretty excited. So remember us this holiday season. You can come get some coffee cup cozies, as well as many of our other products, at Wadoo or online at the Plaidypus store.

We also still have one more fair for the year (next weekend!), so keep your eyes peeled for that as well. I’ll post specifics soon on here.

How to Drink Coffee in Style: The Coffee Cup Cozy

I know, I know, it’s summer and no one wants to be drinking scalding coffee, right? I thought that, too, until I realized that most people who drink coffee keep drinking coffee, even in the heat! Something about caffeine addiction or something.

Anyway, if you drink hot coffee, and you don’t want to touch the hot cup (because, let’s face it, you’re already consuming the stuff, so you may as well not double up on the heat), then why not try a coffee cup cozy? The ones I create are made of felted wool sweaters (the ugly ones, not the nice ones) and a pretty, big button.

If you’re local to Fort Collins, you can find these babies at Wadoo (in old town). If you live anywhere else, then feel free to order one on my etsy site! I can even try to do custom colors (assuming I can find the sweaters).
