Collaged coasters

The last few days, I've been working on these gifts for co-workers. I used the same paper-cloth technique I've been experimenting with, this one all in shades of blue and white, with silver accents (she celebrates hanukkah, which begins tonight). I really enjoy this technique and the small format as well as working on several out of the same cloth and making each one different and unique with embellishments and words.

Here is a second set I made for another friend - totally different color scheme and feel. She is a very high energy person and loves to celebrate Christmas in a big way, has a big family party every year and I hope she'll be able to use these then. Fun!
We are leaving tomorrow for a family vacation, so I won't be blogging for at least a week. I'll try to take some interesting photos while I'm away, so I'll have something creative to do and think about. Times like this, I wish I knitted or crocheted - so easy to bring that along! I'll just take my book for the plane ride. See you next week!
