So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Coaster Gifts

These are the coasters I made from tumbled tiles. I first used Staz On black and did the words from GKD Enjoy the Sunshine, then sanded the blocks and then stamped with GKD Year of Borders Butterflies....let it dry...colored with copics trying to stay clear of the edges for streaking...used sponge daubers of Staz On ink .. let it dry...then did spray a fixative on it....let it dry...put 4 little felt "feet" on the back. I made 6 of them...2 of each design...butterflies going across or diagonal.

This is a wooden coaster from Kaiser Craft. I used the same stamps and Staz On inks and copics..then used sponge daubers for the background. On this one I put a satin varnish..let it dry throughly and then cut out a piece of felt for the back. It did work!

This is the last set of coasters. I did the same thing with the Staz On ink and used the GKD Pretty As a Peacock stamp for the words and GKD Blessed is the Season for the trees.

I really think I like the tumbled tiles better and those will be the 2 Christmas gifts!
