Thanksgiving Conversation Coasters!!!

Since I stared my blog.... my original "Conversation Coasters" printable has been my most popular download.  And, after receiving about a half dozen requests for a Thanksgiving themed set... I couldn't help myself but sit down with my favorite friend, Scrapbook Max, and design them!  Aren't they fun?


You simply print the images, trim them, then Mod Podge them to 4x4 ceramic tiles.  The best part is... the tiles are DIRT CHEAP.  I got mine at Lowe's this week for only $0.16 each!  My file includes a set of 12 coaster images... each with it's own unique question to spark fun and meaningful conversation during Thanksgiving dinner.  Two bonus blank coordinating images are included with the file, as well as a full set of instructions for making/mod podging your coasters.  What a fun way to set the theme for your Thanksgiving tablescape!

To view my Etsy Listing for this file... CLICK HERE!

Other questions not shown... What is the first thing you plan to do after dinner?  Name at least 3 things you are thankful for.  What is the most positive thing that has happened to you since last Thanksgiving?  What 2 things do you love about the person sitting to your right?  What have you done lately to show others your gratitude?  What 2 things do you love about the person sitting to your left?  What is your favorite Thanksgiving memory?  Who are you most thankful for in your life and why?

Hi! I just found your adorable site! You have fantastic ideas- thank you for sharing. I'd thought I'd just share with you an awesome digital scrapbooking company- i used to work for them actually before we moved so far away. Anyway all their digital stuff links up with scrapbook max very easily and they have a free trial on the site. They seriously have the cutest stuff!!! Check it out www.digitalexpressclub.com Just wanted to share! thanks:)

okay your blog is WAY TOO CUTE!! I am adding it to my reader :) Also, I wanted to let you know that I am working on and trying to get out there something called "The Handmade Pact" & "Handmade Tuesdays." On Tuesday I feature someone for a tutorial (let me know if you ever want to be featured :) and then I have a linky where others can link up tutorials they have done on their blogs (can be from whenever. Just cannot be repeated on more than one week). :) I am also wanting to feature etsy shops as well because not everyone can make things :) Have a great week!

For Thanksgiving I sit at a full table of loud voices trying to outdo each other. The sound of laughter does not improve the volume. The coasters are a superb idea because every guest can share individually their thoughts with family and friends
