  • But, in order to receive your present you have to play along. Spread the love on your own blog promising to send a little special something to the first three people who comment on your post.
  • You get 72 hours (that's 3 days people) to re-post, or I’ll have to move on to the next person.

  • Buttons, Not just for Sweaters Anymore

    I love buttons.  I think it's because they present a world of possibility.  Use to be, buttons were just to keep your shirt or sweater closed.  Not anymore!  If you go to Pinterest and search for buttons a whole world of fabulous crafts open up.
    This week I scored a jar of all white buttons at a thrift store.  Whee!!  There were some Mother of Pearl buttons and some flower shaped buttons.  I'm so excited!
    Jar o' buttons
    The button in the middle looks like a pig nose. I'll have to come up with a little piggy to use it on.  
    What's your favorite way to use buttons?

    Yarn Flowers and Stress Relief

    The last few weeks have been rather stressful as my 14 year old started high school.  She had joined the marching band in the summer but once school started she quit because she felt it was too much with her 4 honors classes.  I'm torn because I don't want her to  be a "quitter" but I guess it's a good lesson to learn to walk away from something if it's not working.  ( Something I have trouble with).
