Give Thanks Blog Hop - Day 1

Welcome to the Give Thanks Blog Hop - Day 1. This is part of the monthly hops hosted by Creations with Kathryn, however, she is not able to be a part of this hop (and December's) due to a family situation. I am filling in as surrogate hostess. Kathryn, we are thinking and praying for your family!

I have been wanting to make some coasters. Many months ago I purchased some tiles with the intention of trying to etch them. Absolutely NOTHING worked good enough to my standards. I pretty much gave up on the idea. When working on my Day 2 project, a thought came to me. What if I combined my "Autumn Is Here" project and the box of tiles I couldn't use.

Here is what I came up with. 

And here is the set of 6 coasters.

I cut the napkins to a 4.25x4.25 inch square. I mod podged the napkin on.From experience, completely let the tile dry before adding mod podge on top of the napkin - less wrinkles.

When I bought the tiles, I also purchased some shelf liner. I didn't mind the baby print on top, because I knew it would be the part glued to the tile. Now the tiles won't scratch furniture or slip. 

I was going to give my tiles to my mother on Thanksgiving, but since we are now going to my sister's I will give them to her. I hope she likes them.

Be sure and come back tomorrow and see what I am thankful for!

Your next stop on the Give Thanks Blog Hop is my friend Carley from The Real iCarley. Less than a year ago when I was just starting this crafty adventure I went on my first blog hop. I won my very first blog candy from Carley and we have been friends since. I am so glad she was able to join with me today!

I just left a comment and for some reason it didn't show up. I had this problem with blogger yesterday too...hopefully this time it will work.

I LOVE love love your coasters! I was thinking you might try alcohol inking but I think the decoupage came out beautiful!

I followed everyone on your list and left comments but I noticed that some people had additional people or different ones on their list. How do I know if I have hit all the right ones?
