Thankfully, the January tax return filing deadline has now passed and I was so pleased to actually get all my clients' tax returns (and mine ;) ) filed before midnight on 31 January. Mind you, my tax return actually went in at 2 minutes to midnight, so I did cut is fine!

But, with the tax return panic now being over, I can get back to the serious business of crafting!  

Last last year I made some tile coasters and have just got around to posting about them on the hybrid chick blog:



They were so easy to make and full details are on the Hybrid Chick blog (just click on the above photo to be taken straight to the blog). These were a lovely change from cards and albums, and made a lovely gift when tied with ribbon:



In fact, they were so easy to make that I ended up being carried away and used up a whole box of tiles (a pack of 25 from Homebase which cost less than £5) to make even more coasters.  Here are just a few of them:







Why not have a go yourself at making some of these?  They really are very simple as you just need tiles, cork matting, glue and varnish.  As I mentioned above, full details are on the hybrid chick blog so why not take a look and then make some coasters yourself?

Well, I have a glass of red wine calling my name, so I'm off now!  I hope to be back soon with some more crafting ideas so in the meantime, happy scrapping!

    Love this! So many ways to do hybrid projects!

    I saw an old post of yours in the forum. I'm moving things from the forum to the blog, so your backpack album should post next week with a link to your blog. Thanks for sharing.

    Hey, why not come chatter with us again and share your stuff! I'd love to see you back again. You are so creative.
