Three ways to use a mug...

Ok, I'm fairly certain you all know how to use a mug. However, sometimes the mug is so pretty that it might seem like a shame to just use it as, well, a mug. This is one such example. A surprise Christmas present from my lovely friend Kimberly which I liked so much, I decided it deserved its own post. 

Not just any post though, this is my first little gif. I thought that such a nice present deserved something special and since I was pondering about the many uses a mug could possibly have, a post showing my thoughts seemed like the obvious answer. My top thoughts (calling them ideas seems a little presumptuous) so far are pencils, makeup brushes and, er, hot chocolate. So, what have I gone for then? Well, at the moment it's sitting prettily on my desk filled with pencils and I like it. How about you, what would you do?
