Remember last month when I shared the wood slice magnets my daughter and I made for her 4th grade Rendezvous? Well, I found 5 larger wood slice rounds that I had cut up and stashed away and challenged myself to put them to use.
I have to tell you straight up, I’ve been in a bit of a creative slump the last little while. Some days it’s pretty hard to get motivated. My friend says I’m in need of a big dose of spring, and she’s probably right. Winter has been long and cold this year. I shouldn’t complain because we desperately needed the moisture here in our desert state. The heavy snow fall has been a great blessing and I’m very thankful. At the same time, it’s made me want to hole up in a blanket fort with a stack of books and an endless supply of cocoa. Sounds like heaven but isn’t exactly productive.
To combat the blahs, I gave myself two challenges. The first being that I would hold a pop-up shop little market in April, and the second that I’d do at least one creative thing every day. I’ll give you more deets on the pop-up in the coming weeks, I’m still trying to iron it all out. As for the daily creativity, here’s what I’ve been playing around with the last few days.
I didn’t take any pics of the process, I was just kind of winging it. I think sometimes I feel so pressured to create something awesome for this blog that it takes away some of the fun. When I challenged myself to explore my creativity daily, I felt strongly that it wasn’t for this blog but simply for me.
Some projects I may share here or over on Insta and some I may just keep to myself. That may not make for stellar tutorials, but in this moment I’m cool with it. These wood slice coasters are so simple that they don’t need a big tute anyway.
Optional: Glue some felt to the back if you have a surface you are afraid of scratching.

Now back to the post…
These fun wood slice coasters are a cheap and easy project. If they get ruined or don’t last forever, at pennies per coaster, so what. The trends will change in a couple years anyway and we’ll be on to something else.
For the time being, enjoy your wordy wood slices!
P.S. I bought these GORGEOUS tulips at Trader Joe’s for like $5! They are helping me remember that winter won’t last forever. Sunshine, green growing things, and longer days are on their way.
