Button-palooza

So . . . .

I went a little nuts last night.







Whaddaya think?

******

Gini--I know, I am nuts. I probably couldn't do baby bedding, I mean, how do you even make a fitted sheet? I think that involves elastic, and that scares me! Yeah--make your pillows already!

Hey Mom- I need more buttons! Yes, I remember that one bracelet you made with all of the hearts and flowers and dogs--way cute!

Alice--I think black and white would be great. Maybe with one fun RED button thrown on!

Jo2308 - thanks for visiting! Yes, looks like primary colors are getting a big nod. I was thinking about what you said with yellows and orange for spring, and that is why I went with the yellows and greens.

Redhead - those little shiny buttons make very cute wrap rings. You should get started again. Isn't it fun?

Stephanie- the buttons are so pretty. James likes to play with them, and then I have to re-order all of them by color (and I end up sucking some up in the vacuum!) Thanks for the book suggestion--I think I'll take a look at it this weekend.

Amy!! - Hi! Thanks for commenting! Luv u! Wow-I don't even remember you being there at the gym. How did Mom keep you entertained? And J.S.??!!! You freaking remember that? That is NUTS! You should be making tons of button jewelry--after all, you have access to some of the best vintage buttons in the world! Some I got from Mom, most I got from E-bay.

Gorgeous....oh and hey - there's this VERY cool website called etsy.com where people can go online to buy and sell handmade items - you should check it out. Maybe you can sell your handiwork there???
