The Mug Adoption Program (MAP) was launched on Mother's Day 2014. The idea was borne out of my attachment to the little characters I paint on my pieces. Since I spend a considerable amount of time hand painting each little guy, it's sometimes difficult to let them go... as if they were my pets. So this program is my way of staying connected to the pieces once they go to a new home.

How it works:

  1. Pick out a mug or any item with a character (adoptee) on it.
  2. Write the name of the adoptee (along with own name and adoption date) on the provided adoption card.
  3. Take a photo of the adoptee with the adoption card and send to bluebeanstudio(at)

The photo will then be posted to this virtual photo wall so that people can see their adoptees among the big blue bean studio family. Adopt a mug today : )
