FYI: I had several requests for info on how I did the tiles & decided to add the info here. The first tumbled tiles I bought @ Menards didn't work well...I ended up using Rialto White tiles from Lowe's. I stamped the images with Staz-On, then colored them some with Prismacolor Pencils & some with ink & a waterbrush. I baked them for 20 minutes @ 350. After they cooled I sprayed them with several coats of matte sealer. Have fun!!
I also made a few more bottle-cap magnet sets. I think I'm going to give these to my niece & nephews' teachers this year. I try to always send a little something extra for them to add to their teacher's gifts.
Hope everyone is having a fun week...time for me to pick up some of my mess before I call it a night.
Thanks for stopping by.....

I can't believe it has been a week since I posted. I've been in a crafting frenzy lately and have so many projects lined up on my crafts tables. Most of them are in the "not quite ready to share" stage. I did finish some coaster tiles tonight and thought I would share them. I've decided to make most of my gifts this year (for my sisters & family). They are always saying they would like for me to make them something...they are getting their wish this year. :o) These are my first coasters, so please be gentle. The funny ones will go to my oldest sister..she has a warped sense of humor (like me...:o). I found some funny stamps online tonight...my credit card is calling my name. Just might have to order them...they are so cute & would be perfect for coasters.
