Crazy Spring Coasters and a GIVEAWAY #ExtraSweetCreamyCGC

creamer and coasters close up

Happy Monday Morning!  I hope you are feeling bright and chipper because I am thrilled to be sharing about some Extra Sweet and Creamy Creamer, as well a tutorial for making Crazy Spring Coasters.

Today the topic of discussion is a mandatory part of my Monday morning (and every morning)–Coffee.  I have come to believe that there are 2 types of people in this world, when it comes to coffee consumption: those that like it black (and are proud of that).  These people take their coffee like a pill and sneer at the idea of adding anything to it.  And then, there are people like me.  We like coffee, as long as it is loaded with cream and sweetness.  If all there is is black coffee, um, pass.  In fact, as far was I’m concerned, the creamier and sweeter, the better.

Because of this, and because I really do need a cup of Joe to get me going in the morning, I was THRILLED to learn about Coffee-mates new creamers that are Extra Sweet and Extra Creamy.  Now, that sounds perfect!  My husband and I are currently enjoying the Italian Sweet Cream.

creamer sweet and creamy Coffee-mate’s newest flavor, Extra Sweet & Creamy, creates a balanced cup that is perfectly creamy and wonderfully sweet.  Along with this, Coffee-mate has several flavors with a range of sweetness including Original and Italian Sweet Cream.  All of these are designed to work well with any type of coffee or brand.  We tried it, we loved it, and we will be using this Extra Sweet and Creamy creamer from now on!

And you now me, I can never just try a new coffee creamer and call it done.  I had to make a fun little crafty something to make my coffee drinking even better.  For this occasion I whipped up some quick Crazy Spring Coasters.  I shared these Crazy Coasters last summer and since then they have gotten a lot of use, and I still love them, but the colors I used to make them were not very springy.  Hence, these new coasters!

How To Make Your Own Crazy Spring Coasters:

  1. Download and print the TEMPLATE.  Cut out and, using packing tape, cut out 1 small circle, 1 flower and 2 larger circles for each coaster you intend to make, alternating between your felt and patterned fabric.  For details instructions on this method for using tape to cut precisely, check out THIS POST.
  2. Once you have all of your pieces cut, grab some straight pins and pin down the center circle, flower shape and 1 large circle.
  3. Head to the sewing machine and free motion stitch around the outside of the center, then the flower pedals.  Finally, place the second large circle behind everything and free motion stitch around the outside.

Annnnd, there you have it!

  29. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog
    and was curious what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost
    a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
