My online shopping has not been very successful of late as I am finding more things for myself than for others, typical of the holidays I suppose. Eyeing these wonderful ceramic tile coasters created by Athens-based artisan, Maya Gencic. The 4 x 4 ceramic tiles are sealed with layers of varnish giving the tiles a painted or inlay look. You can follow her work here on Facebook and purchase her products
here on Etsy under the brand, Tilissimo.

We always try to make our gift packages special so we thought of trying to make fabric hang tags. The ones pictured above were created by UK-based artist, Claire Sounes, who writes on her Etsy profile:
“I love designing and making items by hand. I like using traditional British fabrics especially Liberty Tana Lawn combined with linen and vintage buttons.”
You can purchase her designs here on Etsy under the brand, Clair Sounes Stitch and also here on Folksy under the shop name, Tokenhouse.
