My Name is Jessica, and I am a Button Floozy

All those who share a love for buttons, hoard buttons, and could eat buttons for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if they were low-carb say, "Ay." This meeting is now in session.
Oh, what buttony goodness is found on this site fellow button floozies!! I am beside myself with giddiness to be contributing to such a lovely blog. Thank you Abbie!
I've been a lover of buttons for some time now. I think it's hereditary. See here for my logic behind that. I'm a scrapbooker, and enjoy looking for unique embellishments in unseemly places. Enter buttons. Now, I originally started hoarding buttons with the excuse that they were going on my family scrapbook layouts. Take a look below, and realize that I lied, and I just wanted to get my hands on this little buggers. I think my husband's on to me... but in case he's not, ssshhh!

I think I have enough buttons for a few family scrapbooks, hmm? Buttons do look quite lovely in scrapbooking projects though. See here for an example. Anyhow, I've been ranting about buttons on my blog Kids Napping? I'm Scrapping! for some time now. See here and here. I love to include them in swaps (see here , here, and here) in hopes to addict others to buttons, as well. I love to see that others are already addicted. Check out this Flickr site for some button love. Thank you again Abbie, and happy button hunting fellow floozies! Hugs, Jessica.

This meeting is now in recess. ;o)

What a fun post. I love buttons, too. I inherited my mother's old jar of buttons from her. Good for your for joining this fun group of bloggers.

Hi Rachel,
Nice to meet you too! :) I took a peek around your blog. Love it! It was hard tearing away from your playlist 'cause it looks like we like the same songs. My daughters and I were getting our boogie on. lol.
Susan,
You would think I do a LOT of scrapbooking to keep up with this insane stash, but I don't. I love hoarding them. I'm addicted. I know it. I wake up in the middle of the night sleepily muttering, "I need more buttons." I may have a problem here. Thank you for stopping by! :)

WOW! Your button collection is gorgeous!! Where do you find them mostly? I'm a new button lover!!

Hi Jan,
Thanks for dropping by. :) and thank you for your nice comment! :) Let's see... where do I find them mostly? I like to go to JoAnn's Fabrics and Michael's and by their button lots because they have so much variety. Hmmm... I have bought some on eBay, as well. My mom had this crazy amount of buttons in a box that she gave me a few years ago. I mean CRAZY Jan. I like to look in clearance sections at various stores because they always seem to have button packs for reasonable prices. I think that about covers it. :) Hugs!
