Grand-dog Christmas Coasters

Jess Laine is an SF based blogger, designer, and painter. A little while ago she ordered her first Coastermatic set, and loved them so much she decided to get a set as a Christmas present for her parents.

Yesterday, I went over Jess’s house to talk to her about the set she was making and how she decided what photos to use.

“My parents love Lois, my french bulldog. They send her cards and presents all the time. Making coasters of their favorite grand-dog makes perfect sense,” Jess said.

Like many dog lovers, Jess has a lot of Lois photos. Choosing just 4 can make for a particularly daunting task. To help with her selection, Jess decided to pick a theme for her set.

“I have so many photos of Lois, I’m focusing on ‘Lois at the Beach’ as a theme to keep things organized. She loves it there and Ocean Beach is beautiful. In the future, I’ll probably make a ‘Lois in bed’ set, ‘Lois with Jess’ set, and maybe a set of ‘Lois on the sofa’.”

Looking for the perfect Christmas gift? Take Jess’s lead: decide on a theme and start your set!

Coasters for Dad

Phil is a friend of mine who works at Cafe Sophie. We see each other a few times a week, when I head to the cafe for a change of scene (I work from home).

Phil at Cafe Sophie

For Christmas, Phil decided to make set of coasters for his dad, so I hung out with my camera earlier this week to talk to him about it and snap these photos.

Tash: Why do you want to make coasters for your dad?

Phil: I think it’d be hilarious for him to put his gin on my face.

Phil picking images from Instagram

Tash: Lol, tell me about the photos you’re picking out.

Phil: Well, these are all photos of me and my family over the last couple of years. My sisters and I are all growing up, and have reached a new stage in our relationships - we’re friends now, not just annoying siblings. I want my set to reflect that.

There’s a photo of my sister and I before heading out to a Christmas party a year or so ago, and for me, that’s the beginning of this new phase. Other photos I picked are from a family trip to Europe we took recently, and the last one is from my 21st birthday weekend - my parents came to SF and we went to Hardly Strictly, a bluegrass festival. It was a great time.

Tash: Sounds like some great moments to keep on the table! Thanks for sharing.
