Coaster Box and I've been tagged

This is the coaster box that I made to go with my desk sets that I started the other day. I found the tutorial on SCS. I started with chipboard coasters, covered them with the paper that matches my composition book from the other day and trimmed the paper to fit. There are five holes going up the side of each of the four coasters. I laced them with ribbon and tied the bows at the top. there is a plain coaster glued to the bottom to make it a box that can be used as a pen holder or as a treat holder. I put two of the decorated RSVP pens in my box and on the front is a paperclip book mark. The monogram stamp set is from Clear Dollar Stamps. I really like this set because there are several options to make your monograms a little more versatile. I am making several of these desk sets this year.

I have been tagged by Tania! I am supposed to list 7 random or weird things about myself. I know the people that know me in real life are wondering how I could pick only seven, but here goes:
1. I collect Pez dispensers. I have hundreds and hundreds. I even had a Pez Bride and Groom on my wedding cake.
2. I hate celery in every way. I hate the way it tastes, I hate the way it smells, I hate the way it smells and I hate the way it sounds when other people are eating it.
3. I wore pink, high top Chuck Taylor tennis shoes under my wedding dress.
4. I read a lot. On average, I read at least 2-3 books a week.
5. I love John Denver.
6. I love Little House on the Prarie and the Waltons.
7. I have really odd taste in music, covering every generation and type of music. My husband laughs at the music I have on my iPod. It has everything from Aerosmith to Peter, Paul and Mary, from Nickleback to Merle Haggard. I also have lots of Musicals.

There you have seven weird things you know about me! I am going to tag whoever wants to play along, as I know several people that have been tagged already. Please play along and put a link to your blog in your comments!

We are headed out of town in just a few minutes to have Thanksgiving with my family. We will be back on Sunday but I have something scheduled to post tomorrow. Have a great weekend.
