But(ton), I LOVE Daisies!

What’s your favorite flower?  Mine is hands down the basic white Shasta Daisy!  I do love variations (such as her sister Gerbera), but my true love is the delicate white petal and the bright cheery yellow center.  So, when I was trying to think of what to do with all of my wonderful buttons, I thought, why not make a daisy for my kitchen [...]

So my mom is getting ready to make the big move from my home town to my current town! I’m super excited to have her close, as are my littles. We’ve been helping Grammy look for a new place to live; but with that comes cleaning out the old to get ready to sell. So in the clean out process, we came across some goodies she was going to [...]

This one is for the little (or not so little) fan in your house.  Do they have a sports room or bar, or dare we say the ole Man Cave?  These sports themed letters are a fun way to show your love of all sports.  Make them in whatever sport; I plan to work up samples for Tennis, Golf, and Hockey soon.  Do a name, initials, a city or school.  [...]

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superhero Letters!

I recently created some hand painted letters in a superhero theme.  It was a really fun project, and I’m currently working on two new ones of Flash and Green Lantern.  I’ll add photos of those as well once complete. These are meant to hang on a wall, but they could rest on a shelf.  I used 9″ letters that were 1/2 inch thick, [...]

Corduroy, I Have Your Button!

I recently went thrift shopping and came upon a great jar of vintage buttons.  The seller had matched up all the sets and talked about them with great pride; making them an even better find.  I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them yet, but I couldn’t pass them by when I saw the jar of perfect colors.  My first project was [...]
