Bieng a little crafty!




Mike has been grouching at me because I leave my cups with soda and ice on the tables & then it leaves a ring!.. He doesnt blame it on me, but in stead made up a little person that keeps doing it, called "the watered down soda gnomes" he says, well babe, those watered down soda gnomes did it again!.. Crap.. so I decided to get coasters, but they are all ugly! at the store you pay $17 for some ugly coaster with a rooster on it. & you can buy cutes homemade ones but they are $30! thats nuts. Soo.. I am cheap and decided to make my own,

Here are some I made, they work great! they are very cute, just a few little blemishes I am trying to work out. Here is a pic of ones I made Heather (the red ones) and mine the blue ones.





Amy this one is for you :)

You asked for something chocolate, so when I had my girls only, passion party! Which was soo fun! I made these little tarts things!

They had chocolate moose, made from pudding and a container of cool whip! then I put it in the individual sized cups graham cracker pie crusts and sliced straberries for the top. They wre great! easy to make, and I can't wait to make them again! :)




& of course because of the wonderful mom I am.. Here a scrapbook page of Riley eating the remainder of the cool whip :)

7 Comments!! I love Comments!:

Those are pretty cute. I agree, all the ones at the store are ugly.

The little pies look really good. What is the girl's night thing you did?

How did you make the coasters?

Valerie, The coasters were so easy! & Cheap, I got 4x4 tiles at Home depot for .12 each. a piece of scrapbook paper and a roll of cork board. I cut the scarpbook paper, glued it to the tile, and them painted a clear varish over it that you can get at any craft store. after it dries, cut the cork board and its peel and stick to the back! :)

Amy, I had a passion party! :) I was so fun and very well done. It wasnt weird or anything. Girls Only! & all purchases and stuff were done in a seperate room, confidential. There was blushing, and alot of *oh My look at that!* but, it was good and I think I will have another one someday :)

I like the blue ones best! They are adorable! I love the idea of making coasters! Have you thought of selling them? having your own $30 coasters for sale?

The strawberries and the chocolate....mmm....so delectable!
