Dirt in Your Skirt Mugs Are Here


Dirt in Your Skirt Mugs are officially available today! For the last two months, I have been working with the women at Mean Mugs Pottery here in Salt Lake City, Utah to craft a truly unique Dirt in Your Skirt mug.

After my first meeting with the owners Jessica and Judy, I knew they were the best company to work with. Not only are they a small women-owned business but also let me be part of every step of the creation process. Jessica, Judy, and their studio manager Avery have created a product I am so proud to offer to you all!

We spent time not only talking about the shape of the mug but also the details like the Dirt in Your Skirt fire logo on the thumb rest to signify the fire used in the glazing process. At the base of each handcrafted handle is a mug representing the hands that went into making the mug.

On the bottom, we created a special mean mugs stamp to represent these women owned companies working together. Every mug has the initials of the initial potter who made the mug, although in truth all mugs are touched by all three women in the process.

Finally, we handpicked glazes to represent the elements of Dirt in Your Skirt, from the campfire coals red to the deep water blue. We have eight different colors for you to choose from and unique half dip styles to show off the earthiness of the process.

Each Mug has over an hour of hands-on love and work put into it. You will literally feel the difference in each sip using the mug. Tomorrow we will be releasing the podcast, episode 112, with Jessica and Judy and shortly after that we will have a short documentary coming out about the entire process and Mean Mugs Pottery.

The Dirt in Your Skirt Mugs are available at our shop online and I will ship them globally. Because of the production process, we have limited quantities of each color so if you see one you like don’t delay in picking yours up!

    • The old saying goes... give a man a fish they will have a meal. Teach a man to fish and they will eat for the rest of their life...
I was so young when I learned to fish it’s just always been a part of my life. I sometimes take the skill for granted because it’s always been there.
Over the weekend I got to share this skill with a couple of my nephews and nieces.
One in particular is the only one in his family not into running and hiking. Reed is more into his card games Ukio (or something like that) and Pokémon and the tv series that go along with it.
A week or two before the family reunion Reed told his mom he wanted a fishing pole 🎣. His mom said try it first.
Well within minutes of his first cast he was hooked. Watching his face bring in his first trout was magical.
After he caught it he said “I hope I like the way it tastes!” His uncle helped him clean the fish and he ran it back down to the truck (it was a 2.5 mile hike up to the lake) cooked it up with his uncle and said “Yum” as he took his first bite.
The world has another fisherman and he talked about the experience the rest of the reunion. I am one proud aunt.

    • Five days of digital detox at my inlaws yearly family reunion. This year the family changed it up with a camping trip.
Five days in the mountains with no cell service. I didn’t take many photos but l’m a sucker for a sunrise photo with my dogs.
Walking away with over 25 miles of trails under my feet, a couple hours of fishing, teaching kids to fish (probably the highlight), high mountain lake swimming, and taking some alone time to do a 14 mile trail hike/run to get to see the sunrise at over 10,500 feet.

    • You know it’s another hot one when the bees are bearding like this.
Bearding is kinda like hanging out on the porch on a hot day when it’s too hot in a non-air conditioned house.
Hanging out and trying to keep cool.

    • Probably one of the best books I have read/listened to recently. Honored that I get to interview Roshi Joan Halifax this afternoon.
Can’t wait to have discussions about edge states, her awakening to the inner self, and capture just a sliver of her wisdom.
