Manic Mondays

It's here. It's finally here. No not Monday but the LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL! I don't know who is more excited. My 7th grader or me. No more alarms to set, packed lunches or picking out clothes.

We had a rather lazy weekend. It's the first weekend in 3 months that Caleb didn't have a basketball game. Chris and I also celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary on Saturday. We celebrated on Friday night by going to dinner at our favorite sushi restaurant and enjoyed about an hour and a half of adult time. It was much needed and very enjoyable.

I never have a clue what to get him for his birthday, Christmas or his anniversary. He wants something he usually buys it for himself. This time was no different. I decided on making him something for his office. He cleaned it up last week and it looks so nice and cozy in there. I had the idea of making him some coasters for his desk. I went to Lowe's to get the individual tiles as they are only 16 cents a piece.

They come in glossy white. 


He's a Bama fan and I had some old fabric laying around. I decided to use Mod Podge to adhere it to the tile and it worked perfectly. You have to add a layer to the tile and then put the piece of fabric over it. Smooth it out starting from the middle to get rid of any air bubbles. 

I then added about 2-3 layers of the Mod Podge to the the fabric paying close attention to the edges of all the fabric to make sure that it was secured to the tile. 

Once the were all dried, I added a piece of felt the bottom with my hot glue gun and they were ready to give to him as his gift. I tied a black ribbon around it to give a cute feel and he loved them. He usually doesn't get too excited about handmade gifts but he really seemed to like this one! Score! 

Here are what they all four look like all finished. So pretty even though they would be much prettier i in orange and blue and said Go Gators. Haha

They will look good in his new clean and decorated office. Happy Anniversary Baby! I love you.
