Whenever my creative juices aren't flowing I can always fall back on making coasters. I sure am accumulating a bunch of coasters..LOL. These were made using images of very old magazine covers, several of these were published over 100 years ago. Wish I had the actual magazines. I'll bet they would make for interesting reading.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

This is a tile I made for my grandson to give to his Dad, my son. I had a picture of a sketch of the hands and posted it on the craftedge forum asking for help to convert it to an svg. 3 people actually responded, and I ended up using anointed hands's file and then incorporated it into my design for the tile. It's one of my favorites.
For all of those still trying to get this file go to
go down 4 posts to find the one I used. It was created by Anointedhands.
Hope this clears evrything up.

I started with a coaster box, which I made using some vintage Valentine paper, laced the sides of the coasters to make a box. I put a piece of styrofoam in the botton so I could stick the giant lollipop in it, then some red shred. I filled it with goodies and wrapped in with celophane and tied it up with some curly ribbon. Thanks for looking and Happy Valentines day to everyone!

I made 4 sets of 2 coasters each with vintage Valentine images for teacher gifts. In my usual and effecient manner I waited till the very last minute to get these done. The sizing on the image could have, and should have been a little more accurate (oh well, next time) After I wrapped them up in celephane I felt like they looked very bland, so I made some little box bottoms to spruce them up a little. Thanks for looking and have a creative day!
