~Coasters~


I found this easy tutorial before Christmas, and had fun whipping up a set of coasters for my mom, one for my desk at work, and then helping my little sisters make sets for their Sunday school teachers.

These things are addictive, or easy, or something. *Grin*

Anyhow, here comes the fun part: comment in this post telling me your favorite tea, coffee, cocoa, etc. (hot or cold), and I'll enter your name into a drawing for the coasters. Deadline? Let's make it next Monday. I'll do the drawing sometime in the evening.

I'm awfully tempted to draw my own name out. LOL

Hi Tammy! My favorite hot drink is Land o' Lakes French Vanilla Cocoa mix with whipped cream on top. The Double Chocolate is pretty good, too! :) Beautiful coasters.

Do I have to name just one. I have a couple of favorite teas, one being Bengal Spice and the other being Cardamom Cinnamon. One of my other favorite hot drinks is Starbuck's Peppermint Hot Chocolate. It tastes just like a York Peppermint Pattie.

Jennifer said...

I'd have to say it's Roobis Caramel Cream. Those are so cute!

Tammy L said...

Oh, those are beautiful!! You make such nice things! :)
One of my favorite teas (I have many favorites ;D) is this lavendar jasmine one, given to me from a friend. :)

Tammy, this is off topic for the coasters, but I didn't know where else to put it!
I'm a beginner knitter (have just successfully made a ribbed scarf), and I want to make ski hats for hubby and myself - do you know a nice easy pattern please? Do I have to learn to knit on circular needles for this?

My favorite tea is vanilla chai, or English breakfast tea.

Woo-hoo! I love contests! My favorite tea is Hot Cinnamon Spice from Harney and Sons. If you haven't tried it and you like cinnamon, this is a must!

Melody said...

Wow - those look so easy to make! I'll have to try them sometime.

My favorite? There's too many to pick just one. There's Miss Maggie's flavored coffee mixes, Stash tea (my favorites are Apple Cinnamon Herbal and the Vanilla Chai). . .then there's cappuccino.....lol!

Rachel said...

Hi Tammy! My mom makes those coasters, too.
I love, love a hot mug of Stash Licorice Spice Tea (in the blue box). I don't like black licorice at all, but I love this tea!

Oooh, how fun and the coasters are gorgeous!

My favorite tea is Lady Grey with just a dash of cream and 1 1/2 teaspoons of sugar.

Very cute coasters indeed!

I luv luv luv Schokinag Drinking Chocolate, specifically Chocolate Mint flavor. And Stash Tea's Chocolate Hazelnut decaf is not so bad either! (My favorite hot tea.) And I probably bleed sweet iced tea by way of Luzianne. . . : )

I very much like the coasters as well. I had seen the pattern a few weeks back but haven't tried it yet. Anyway, my favorite beverage to put on that very cute coaster would be a Chai Tea Latte. I love 'em - like dessert in a cup!

i adore the fabric you used in these!

Annecourager said...

ooh, me me me~!
My favorite tea is put out by The Republic of Tea: Ginger Peach. Makes the best iced tea ever. I treat it like some people treat their wines... it has a fruity bouquet and I savor it.

As for coffee--white chocolate mocha.

I love your blog Tammy! I also miss you at the Well, but come here often. I like hot chocolate the best. When I was little and couldn't drink a whole cup of it, mom would put it in the freezer and the next morning, I would scrape it off with a spoon. Hmmm....it's been a long time since I've done that!
I love the coasters too! I just might have to try them.

Julieann said...

Your costers are lovely!!! Since I am pregnant, I have to stick with decaf drinks right now--but my favorite hot drinks are Hazelnut Coffee and Sleepytime tea:)

Pretty pretty coasters! :)

My favorite tea is a good strong cup of English tea (sometimes I use 2 bags) with cream and sugar. Yummm!
During the summer I picked up some Blackcurrant tea and it too is delish with cream and sugar. :)

I'm a HUGE fan of hot chocolate, but since my sweet tooth went into overdrive during the holidays I am trying to stick to Earl Grey breakfast tea.

Ummmmm.......I guess one of my favorite hot drinks is French Vanilla Cappuccino.

Ice cold sweet tea is my most favorite beverage, but if we're talking hot tea, I love raspberry zinger!
