Exciting news!! Two of my handmade coaster sets (not the ones pictured) are being featured in a blog giveaway by my good friend Sara over at Fake It Till You Make It: Turning Sense Into Dollars. Please check out her awesome blog for career advice and tips on frugal living. And don't forget to enter the coaster set giveaway!! This one will have TWO winners!

Hey y'all! So I realize I have been a bit MIA lately, but it's with good cause. I am excited to say that I officially launched my side hustle of Sunshine Cards and Coasters last weekend! Thanks to some supportive friends and colleagues, I have finally taken the next step after talking about it and dreaming about it for such a long time! I am so excited, did I mention that yet?! :)

I make handmade, custom coasters with felt/cork backing using festive scrapbook paper or beautiful color/black and white images. You can send me specific images you'd like to use or I can find some for you. The most recent ones I made featured Marvel, Cape Town, South Africa, Butterflies, and Lions. I've even made coasters representing a fraternity.  Message or email me for more information on materials and pricing.

In addition to coasters, I continue to make specialty handmade cards and envelopes. I do standard cards (thank you, birthday, sympathy, cards for expectant parents, etc.). If you have any special requests please let me know.

In the coming weeks, I plan to add pictures to my online website for purchase through the use of PayPal, and I plan to create an Etsy account as well. If you're looking for that special gift for yourself or a loved one, something that's unique and can't be found in a store, then you're in the right place! Not local? No worries - I will ship your items to you! Want to commemorate that special occasion, and have a useful item too? I'm your woman!

I will be posting more pics and such in the next few days so stay tuned!!!
