I bought some felt and cut it 4 x 4 and glued it onto the backs of the tiles. It gives it a much nicer, finished look. I also put mine on little easels so they can be displayed. Was thinking about putting a hook on the back so they can be displayed either on the easel or on the wall, but decided against that -- didn't have time for an run to the hardware store! I have 2 of my 3 done and am hoping to get my third one done today while I watch football -- ALL DAY!!! Then I'll take pics and post.
Sassie, I know the feeling! I ended up at M's 3 times Friday. Each time, I bought stuff, but forgot to buy the ONE thing I actually went for!
Scrappy, I hadn't planned on putting anything on the back of my tiles. It's up to each person individually, but if anyone plans to use the tiles on a wall or something, they'd need the bare back to hold the mortar.
Ummm... LOL. It's been a busy week around here. We threw a surprise party for my uncle and aunt's 20th anniversary last Saturday and this coming Saturday is our family reunion. Everything in between has been preparing for both parties. LOL. After this weekend, things should calm down for a few weeks. Every weekend this month is something time-consuming. The next weekend is Scrapbook Expo, then the last weekend is my 30th bday. I'm sure I won't get anything done that weekend.
UGH! I forgot again to get my tiles, what the heck is wrong with my brain??? I have to mail out a package for pebbles in the next day or so. I will surley get them then.
I cant work on it this weekend. Just found out my biological mother whove ive not seen since early Jan '10 so Im going to try to spend the weekend with her while she is in town. She lives in Az. Im a little sick to my tummy now knowing shes coming ugh nerves
Sassie, I'm sure you'll be fine. I can't say that I know what you're going into, but I can say that from the other side of the equation it's nerve wracking as well. I get butterflies and nerves galore even just writing to my daughter.
So, my wonderful, awesome, amazing, loving husband bought me a new super duty glue gun for my birthday - complete with several bags of mondo sized glue sticks!!! I've been complaining for months that my little glue gun wasn't enough. Then it started to heat the glue too hot which of course meant that I ended up with blisters a lot. He was apparently tired of hearing about it!! Just wanted to share and knew you ladies would understand my excitement!
im done with mine - are we sending them to you? I thought we got pals, am I having a total brain freeze? I have both of mine done, pictures of the gore is being uploaded in a couple minutes. I need to get pictres of my awesome ATC one!!
I had to use actual coasters because my only hardware store had no tiles period. I wasnt able to get out of town, so I used what I had. Youd never know that I think of sorry about this!!
I finished them! I didn't realize that my camera was fogged over when I took the shot. sorry. Melissa I'm going to indiv. wrap each one with bubble wrap and also send extra for when you return. They will go out tomorrow!!!!
Woohoo!!! All of the packages are in! Bonnie and Michelle, your boxes arrived today!
I will be swapping them out this evening and stopping at the Post Office either tonight or tomorrow morning.
Thanks for a wonderful swap! I really enjoyed seeing everyone's creativity! I will open a coaster swap tonight or tomorrow. The link will be posted here. Please let us know when you receive your tiles!
Thanks Melissa!! I wish more would have shown there tiles. Most where flat right? I shouldnt have made a 3-D I guess but it was what my heart said to do LoL! I can NOT wait to see what I get back (Yay)
