Kamalaht Wine Label Coaster Book

I love carrying around my latest mini books and sharing them with friends. I made three copies of this one so that I could literally share this book and I picture it sitting on my friends' coffee tables as a reminder of the fun times we shared bottling our own wine together. See more of my coaster book here.

I got the idea to use mismatched coasters (you can pick them up at restaurants or order them plain) from my friend Lori, who made me this beautiful book. She has awesome ideas for coasters!

My coaster book uses The Angel Company's Kamalaht paper collection as well as the February vintage stamp of the month and the Wine Labels set that has been retired for a while, but is still in my collection of TAC classic stamps. I used hardware from the Amelia collection and ribbon from a couple of different collections. (Check out TAC's ribbon compatibility chart!)

Another recent project I did was posted on TAC's new Savvy Projects Blog. It's a basket, embellished with Sands of Time paper and filled with little chocolate rocks treats. Go check it out, as well as a ton of other inspiring ideas for spring.

I'm loving my studio, ever since I started my makeover project. It's still in the works, so I'll wait to post full photos, but I just thought I would show you one of my favorite parts: DRAWERS! They are so handy. I can find things fast (and hopefully put them away even faster) and there is a secret spot just above the drawers and under my work surface to store large, flat items like a cutter, Scor Pal and extra work pads. Goodness knows, we need as much surface space as we can find!

PS-Have you checked out Heather's blog? She's giving CANDY!

You ARE the MASTER of the minibook!! I love it!
...and studio organizing? Honestly, are we EVER done? 'Gotta agree with you about drawers. I just got a FAB deal at Target on some cube drawers (4 drawers in one cube.) Would you believe $12 a piece? LOVE the red tags!! I put some styrofoam in the bottom of a drawer and drilled some holes to keep my Stickles point down (prevents tip clogs) and it's working great!!
