I recently went to the store to buy myself a new set of coasters...  However when I looked at the price on what I thought to be a cheap set, I quickly changed my mind.  What is the point of buying an overpriced unoriginal set, when you could just make your own fabulous ones?  So I did.I decided to make a cute set I found on Jo-ann's website, but of course, I modified the project and did it my way.  The final product turned out the same, I just forgot to buy some materials (like always) and was [Read More...]
