Happy Holidays to the Button Floozies!

I have been creating a lot of mixed media ornaments. Almost every one has a button or buttons on it. It is always that last finishing touch. The button on this ornament really spoke to me. 
It says HOLIDAY, FESTIVE AND PARTY! This button was found in a jar of buttons purchased recently at a local thrift store. The button is clear plastic and has silver glitter floating throughout.
Take a look, and remember to have FUN throughout the next week!!! Happy Holidays to ALL!

Button Christmas Cards


Merry Christmas

I wanted to share my cards I made to send out, well really I just added the vintage buttons to cards I have.

                                                                       



                                                                             



I wrapped my last present this morning and turned on the tree light for the first time, now going to add my new red Christmas tablecloth and I'm ready for my family to come over tomorrow for our Christmas together. They come to my house the Sunday before Christmas every year .I never talk about my family however I have 4 little Grandsons ages 11,10,7, 4 . 
Last year I ordered Shakespeare's pizza and the boys said it was best Christmas ever.LOL
They have 2 other large Christmas dinners to go to so Grandma Jan got pizza LOL

Classroom ornaments

My youngest is in her last year of elementary school, and it just hit me that I won't have many more chances to help her and her friends make ornaments in the classroom.  I'm not crafty or even a huge kid person, but I always found this experience to be uplifting and fun so the closing of this door makes me a little sad.

Last year I was pleasantly surprised when one of the ornaments included a button!  The moment came back to me as we unpacked ornaments over the weekend.

Here's a link to a little blog post I wrote about it:  Paint, Bottle Caps and Buttons Too!

EVERY BUTTON CAN TELL A STORY

Here is a collage ornament that I created for 2014. 
On this ornament is a found plastic bird button that  
really is the "Star" of this piece! 
The button tells the story of how love lifts us up...
Just like a bird's wings lifts him up.
"Every button can tell a story"....

"In Love"
