Four more sleeps!

Are you ready for Christmas?  Only four more sleeps!
Look at these beautiful button tags!  They were a gift from Kathy, who shares my love of buttons and shows some wonderful examples on her blog -- you must visit!  They hang from sheer ribbon and I think they make beautiful Christmas ornaments.  I love how she mixed buttons with wonderful textures in colors to complement the beautiful playing cards.
All my gifts are wrapped and I have found time to relax with family and do some creating, like this button bracelet I assembled.  I have always wanted to make one like this!  I love the feeling of accomplishing a long-time goal, don't you?
This time, I used all shell buttons, and added some crystal and silver beads.  I made a pair of matching earrings, too.  I hope you are finding time to play in your buttons as you craft, create gifts, and decorate for the holidays!

Thanks for the shout-out and I am happy you are enjoying them! Yes, I agree about finishing a long-time goal and just finished one a few minutes ago, myself. I will be posting about it tomorrow.
Happy Christmas! 8+)

Such beautiful ways to display buttons. Question, am I a button Floozie by just following this blog and participating in the last swap, or do I need to do something else?
