Okay folks, here are my K&Co glass coasters as promised to you earlier... and boy I know they're not the best photos but no way I could use a flash on these babies so had to use natural daylight & take a picture directly above them to avoid reflections...
All the pictures I have used were taken on my wedding day and you will see they are all wearing my mother's hat as they were actually ripping the p*** out of her.
My opinion on this set is at the bottom of this posting.
Here is my wee mammy acting the proud mother of the bride
This is my nephew William... mums only grandson
This is my step-daughter Brianna... mums adopted grand-daughter
Now the pictures above are not very clear so here is the one I have used of my mum posing on the day
Here is William, my nephew.. think it was actually him who started ripping it out of my mum over her hat and the girls decided to join in the fun...
William was the true gentleman on the day even although he was only 15 at the time.. due to the fact that both my Dad and Brother are dead... I asked William if he would do me the honour of walking me down the aisle & giving me away which he agreed to. He carried out his duty with 1st class style & made us all very proud of him.
This little beauty is my darling neice Hannah whom I never get enough time with.. love having our girly days out shopping when we are together.
On my big day Hannah was 17 and very kindly agreed to act as my Matron of Honour & witness. Like her brother we were all very proud of her & must admit she stole the limelight as she is so camera perfect that everyone was taking snaps of her... always the poser is my darling neice.
As you are probably aware by now, Brianna is setting her sights on being an international opera singer & never refuses the opportunity to perform so on our big day she agreed to not only sing during the service but also stood in as best man for her Dad and also witness.
We have a strange way of doing things I know but as Rob's family are all in America & my Dad & Brother are no longer with us we decided that the most precious thing to us would be if we had the blessing of all the children in our family on our day.
Well now that I've shared this with you.. what did I think of the coaster kit...
I would have to say that although this project was quick & easy to complete there are a few flaws that I would like to see ironed out... the first being that the size of the pictures has to be so small.. as you can see the photos within the coasters are not very big at all. Secondly.. when you are attaching your coaster to the sticky felt undermat, you have to judge where the centre is as there are no markings.. this is fine when you are an every day crafter & used to centering but if you chose to do this as a one off then it would not be so easy. Fianlly I would like to see a much better quality of glass being used for the coasters themselves.. you will see in the pictures above that the images are not very clear.. this is not my photography but is infact caused by the glass which also had quite a few bubbles in it.
A nice project to complete and my mother will be over the moon with them but would I invest in more... questionable... think they would have to at least make the glass to higher standards.
Well I at least hope you enjoyed browsing through the pictures & that my review of the project is somewhat helpful to you.
See you all again soon
Love & hugs
