You know those parties where you end up getting stuck in a corner with the guy who is telling you scene by mother loving SCENE about the script he’s pitching about the inane breakup that he had 6 years ago? And in your head you are chanting ‘WHY WOULD HE THINK I WANT THIS MUCH DETAIL ABOUT HIS “PROJECT”. It would be like me describing to someone every single accessory in a room I designed that they’ll never see … then there is a lamp on the top shelf, next to a stack of colorful, but not too colorful, art books, and get this … ha … i put a brass animal sculpture coming into the shelf, near a wooden shoe knick knack ….
You just feel like this:
Welcome to life at an L.A. party.
But every city has its cliches and every party has ‘that guy’ who is trying to sell you magic water or tell you about the advantages of Australian health care. You want to care, you want to be engaged but your eyes are darting around, spotting more interesting conversations EVERYWHERE, and you just wish you were simply having more fun.
Enter Conversation Coasters. What are they, you ask? As if you’ve never heard of them. They are coasters with a game on them.

Boom. Interesting conversation commence.
And the answer is RYAN, methinks. Duh. God I really wish my photoshopping skills could superimpose my little mouse face on Blake Lively’s hideous body.
Oh, to be a glove upon that hand that might touch that …. cheek …
Ryan would love my coasters … and so can you.
Enjoy this how-to video of how to make your own SUPER EASY conversation coaster using a iron on Epson label maker. Martha Stewart just got a little bit more hardcore.
To get your own iron on label maker (that you can use on kids clothes, your etsy goods or anything that is made of fabric really) go HERE. I’ve now used it 3 times since making these videos. Turns out besides the classic conversation coaster, these guys are VERY useful.
This post was in partnership with Epson, but all ideas, thoughts, words and feelings are mine, mine, mine. :)

So my question to you is: Would you rather …
Its a hard one, I know. I’m going with bald … You?
