My Favorite things to make....

Have you ever found something that you just LOVE to make or do? Well for me, when I am feeling crafty, I love to do things with personal photos. I like to find new ways to display them without just sticking them in a picture frame. So.... this has become one of my new favorite things to make! For the tile trivets, I usually put a big bow on the top, but I chose to leave it off of these for a different look. I will try to post pictures of some with bows so you can see the difference. Let me know what you think :)

The coasters are ceramic tile. I use felt pads on the back so they will not scratch furniture. The have at least 3 layers of waterproof sealer on them so they will withstand the sweat from your drink! 

I made  a set of the trivets for brides' maids gifts. We used the wedding colors for the background behind the picture and the bow. They turned out really cute :)
