In case you didn’t know, my husband and I really, really enjoy the Lord of the Rings trilogy. As in, we watch at least one of the movies every few months and try to watch the whole shebang once a year. It’s soooo good, isn’t it? The story, the characters, the thought-provoking events… everything!
That’s why I was excited to get a request for custom Elvish coasters from a sweet customer. Her friend loves Elvish and so the perfect gift was born: a set of coasters with what she loves, so that she can have a hot cup of tea by her side as she reads the Lord of the Rings series. What could be better than that? Here are a few snapshots of what I designed and sent her!
Measuring to find the center of the rounds.
Heating up the wood burning pen!
I sketched out the design, she approved it, and I went ahead and branded it into the birch! The coasters say “friend” and “Emma” (her friend’s name).
Of course, a thank you note to brighten up her day! 🙂
And off these went to the other side of the country to surprise a friend. Don’t you love people who are so thoughtful and get excited about making their friends know they are thought of and cared for? If you’d like to do the same and think these are a gift your friends or family would love, feel free to stop by my shop and let me know what you’re thinking of. I love helping make these special moments happen!
And voila! I hope you enjoyed these work-in-progress snapshots and got inspired to spread smiles wherever you go!
