When I registered for glass photo coasters at Crate and Barrel, I knew I probably wouldn't put actual pictures inside. I like to add color to the living room wherever I can, so I began trolling Etsy for some sort of bold print that was not too expensive to cut up and on a small enough scale to look nice in a 2x2 inch opening in the class.
Luckily, I discovered the Ragamuffin Press shop on Etsy. The artist, Beth Schaible, creates beautiful letterpress cards and books (and really gorgeous paintings on her personal website) and I instantly clicked 'Add to Cart" when I saw the bright yellow chevron patterned postcard for $3.
Once it arrived, I grabbed a ruler and some scissors and 10 minutes later I had a set of coasters that I'm really happy with. And if I get tired of the yellow, I'll buy a new postcard and start over again!
