My friend, Kelly Waltz (like the dance) drew this incredible piece with color pencils while sitting on the curbside next to Walmart in Walla Walla, Washington. From Denver, Colorado, he's used to witnessing tornados touch the ground and oftentimes has worked in construction to fix the chaos made by the natural disasters. Although he's a hard worker and has had many work experiences, he suffered an injury while being a fisherman where he along with his coworker, who was also a good friend was hit by a boat. Unfortunately, he witnessed his friend die and made it out with a broken shoulder. I asked him what keeps him going, to which he replied that his grandpa who supposedly lived to 114 years old is his inspiration. "That old man didn't quit working, not until he died, if he would've earlier, it would've killed him," he said explaining to me how his grandfather died while driving his tractor on his farm. This piece will remind you of how hardships we go through can help us grow.

Who doesn't love a good surprise? With this color changing coffee mug, you're definitely in for a great one. This mug has a black matte finish when it's empty. But when it comes into contact with a hot beverage, the mug reveals a beautiful print that'll always make you smile when having your drink of choice.
