UPDATE on Tiles from Lowe's

A WONDERFUL lady named Jennifer, who is a manager at the Little Elm Lowe's, found me a bunch of the tiles I've been searching FOREVER for! She worked so hard to find them for me! She's getting me 15 cases which is 810 tiles which will make 202 sets of 4 coasters!

I think that should keep me busy for a while!! :)

It's been a while since I've been able to sit down and make some much needed cards! Sadly I lost a childhood friend a couple weeks ago and wanted to send his parents and wife a card. I didn't have any, so I came up with this design.
I love the simplicity of this card. I also made one that says "Thinking of You."
I like the green and brown together. I tend to create more (as my mom calls it) simply elegant cards.
I need to take more time to make more occasion cards to build up my personal stock.

I'm on a tile search!!!

So Lowe's has discontinued selling the tumbled tile I use to make my coasters! It is an item that the manufacturer has discontinued making. I've found some, but it cost almost as much for the shipping as it does for the item! UGHHHHHH.
I just got off the phone with Lowe's corporate and hope they will be able to give me some help to find another supplier!
Yes there are other tiles out there, but no they don't look as good as the tile I've been working with!
If you know a contractor or flooring "person" please pass their info on to me!

Hand stamped tumbled tile coasters available

I LOVE making these coasters! They are very popular. I've made them with many designs and am always looking for new stamps to use.

To order simply email: craftsbyclare@yahoo.com
A set of four coasters is $20.00.

Each set comes wrapped in an accent ribbon or bow.

These are the most popular of my coasters. It's a cross stamp I found at Hobby Lobby. They make great gifts or a nice treat for yourself!

Another very popular style is the "Cowboy." It's very Texas!

I can also make a matching hand stamped candle to go with any of the coasters.

Each set of coasters is backed with cork so they will not stratch your wood surface.

They are also sprayed with a finishing spray to help prevent fading.

The candle comes with a matching ribbon and/or twine for accent!

These have a beautiful quote on them. "Delight in Life." These have added demention by using colored markers.
I can make them in any color you choose.
