This past week I posted a tutorial on how to make tile coasters to give as Christmas presents.
My post was featured on Tip Junkie, and I got a lot of comments on it.
The best part of blogging is to think that people read your post and actually do it!
My cousin, Kathy, emailed me and thanked me for the idea of making the coasters. In tough economic times, she said it would be an inexpensive, yet meaningful, gift for others.
Then my friend, Raye, also left a comment saying she made the coasters this past weekend. And hers turned out AWESOME!!!! I love the colors she chose! She used scrapbooking paper instead of napkins. Great idea!! Here are a few….
And there’s more!
You can see the rest on her blog, My Day Job Photography. (She’s also a very gifted photographer!)
But I have to admit, my post even inspired those I never imagined it would.
For example….my sister.
I love my sister to pieces, but….well….let’s just say that Mom’s “crafty” genes skipped right over her and went straight to me!
We laugh about this quite often in our family. But this week, we have laughed a whole lot more.
My jaw hit the floor when Cyndi said she went out Monday and bought the supplies to make the coasters. I mean….really?
I tried not to laugh, and I tried to be serious, but it was very difficult.

Maybe you’ll see why my next project is to write a book called, “Crafting for Dummies”.
(Okay, I’m really not that mean. Just a little sisterly banter going on here!)
And don’t forget that I will announce the winner of my 100th post giveaway on Monday!
It’s for this great little plaque…
