For Christmas a couple of years ago, 3 years ago I think, I made all of my friends coasters. It sounds kinda lame, but they turned out pretty neat. I have no idea if anyone still has them, or if anyone actually liked them, but I made them, and there they were. My Dad helped me with the clear coat, since at the time, I was lazy when it came to crafting bravery. Recently I decided to take a stab at it again. My first round didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted them to, but I'd say they're not so bad for a re-beginner.

Oh, and hey! If maybe it slipped your mind, don't forget to enter this weeks Monday suck-day giveaway!!

Oh! And! And! Tomorrow, or later today, depending on how blog active I'm feeling, I can't wait to show you all what my charming husband brought home for me. He scored some major points this time folks. Just you wait and see.

That's a great Christmas gift idea! I am getting ready to make some as well. Still have to buy the tiles.

anyways what I really came over for was to say that you have just been tagged....You get to tell the world seven things about yourself and then tag seven other bloggers so they can do the same!
