Coffee Coaster…

I enjoy my coffee in the mornings right here in my den where I sit at my computer and catch up on my daily routine of blog posts, emails, family schedules & whatever else comes my way!  IMG_0331A few weeks ago, when my great room was being remodeled ~ Don my contractor brought in this piece of wood that had the schedule of flooring dates written on it for me to put in my calendar.  I started using it as my coaster for my Starbucks coffee mug…it’s the perfect size, so why not. I painted it with some leftover paint in the garage from my cabinet I recently painted and put little rubber stoppers on it to protect the glass that sits on top of my desk.
But today when I started getting a little crafty, I snatched it up and used a postcard stamp and permanent ink to decorate it a little.

I may have overdone it somewhat with the stamps, but really, how cute is this?  I am so excited the way it turned out! brings a little character to my desktop now…
