If I wanted to use coasters I already own-just plain old Corelle ones- and decoupage something over the tops, is there something I can coat it with so that it doesn't get ruined if I actually try to use them?

This may be a stupid question, but I'm pretty new to all this... Undecided

If you use a good thick coat of Modge Podge or a coat of clear sealer, you'll be good to go.  You can find spray cans of sealer by the cans of spray paint at the store.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Go with a few coats, perhaps a light sand in between to make a good durable surface

If the coasters have an edge to them, you could coat your images w/ modge then pour resin over them to seal.

As you sew, so shall you rip. Don't fear the ripper.
