The title of this post says it all.
I. Love. Making. Buttons.🙂
I have been making them all my adult life, using different mediums, and right now, I am in a love love love state about making wooden buttons.
I enjoy making eco friendly buttons from the trees that fall down in our grove, or from the twigs and wood that my sisters-in-law prune from the gorgeous arbutus tree in their yard.
But recently, my friend, Molly, asked me to make thinner buttons….
So, I have been making thinner buttons, and loving it!
I’ve been doing wood burning for decades, and really enjoy embellishing the buttons with ‘pyrography’ (wood burning).
I will start getting them into my etsy shop next week.
I was surprised to learn that mailing them isn’t as expensive as I thought it would be, so it is definitely something I will follow through on.
(People asked me if I would do this, and I said no, because I thought that the postage would be insane. Ahem…. after I actually checked it out…. ahem…. it turns out to be ‘yes’) 🙂
I am participating in lots of artisan’s markets/maker’s faires and outdoor festivals this summer, so I will post the dates for those on my facebook page- LINK
In my previous post, I showed how to make 3 different styles of closures using a lucet… LINK
This makes special buttons even more special🙂
