I am a wife, mother of four, ages 17 to 2, and a Christian. I am a foodie, an extreme home enthusiast, trash salvager, and a forever seeker of the ultimate bargain! Oh, and I love shoes!!
If we are not doing the family thang, you can bet I'll be found at a junk sale or antique mall, turning my findings into new shabby chic treasures!

Cute, Easy, and Inexpensive Gifts
I am always looking for gifts that are from the heart and thoughtful, as well as useful and fun. I think these little coasters re a hom run, pefect for grandparents. A trip to Lowes for the tiles( at .17 cents each) and little felt pads for the bottom( 4.00 for the pack) a bottle of Gloss Mod Podge, a glue stick, and any photos you like.
Simply cut your photo to size, use glue stick to secure photo to tile, and add a coat of Mod Podge. Allow to dry completely, I used multiple coats. Your tiles may have an uneven edge from the manufacturer, no problem. Just give a coat of craft paint in the color of your choice. Glue the felt pads onto the four corners( so it wont scratch furniture). Now, stack together and wrap with a pretty ribbon. Easy peasy :)
