I have been working on a project for me! 
NOT kid related, just for mommy! 
No babies, toddlers, or preschoolers invovled...OH MY!!!
Yes, I know this is my daycare blog about kids crafts,
but...are you looking for something to give a loved one, a teacher, a daycare provider,
well if so keep reading...

I made some cute little coasters!
I got the ideas from Mess for Less
-a really great blog-

What you need:
4 ceramic tiles 4.25 by 4.25
(i got mine for 12 cents a piece at Menards- a local hardware store)
Mod Podge
brush for applying
decorative paper of your choice
-- and most importantly you need a little mommy time --
(i find this to be the most imporant!)
Cut the decorative paper 3.25 by 3.25
Apply a layer of mod podge onto the tile
place paper onto cermaic tile
allow to dry (10-15 minutes)
apply another layer of mod podge on top
do this 2-3 times...allowing to dry between each layer
After the coasters have had the mod podge applied 2-3 times (remember to allow to ry completely after each application) add small piece of felt to the bottom of each corner.  I just cut small squares and hot glued them on!
 wrap in a pretty ribbion!
-my bow skills need work-
and give away to a specail somebody.
to add a little more to the package add that special somebodies favorite beverage!
Here are some of my finsihed coasters

Happy Crafting Mommies!

One thing I have learned about being a mother and daycare provider is its very important to get some me time!  Even if that means watching a little tv and doing a mommy craft after the kids have gone to bed!

Linking up with Let's Mingle
