I did a shop update on Sunday, and then today just finished posting the last few sets of buttons I had photographed for it. A shop update was overdue and it felt good to get some new button sets listed. I listed twenty new sets (it’s a start), choosing a fun variety of woods and designs. Head on over to the shop if you’d like to see what’s new. There are two sets of turtle buttons in Oregon myrtlewood that Jeff carved, special because of all the extra time and energy that went into making them. I adore them. (There’s also a gorgeous carved celtic knot button in black walnut.) I included quite a few mixed sets in this update because I can’t get enough of them. I so enjoy creating the mixed sets and love the way they look on the finished cards. They can be used for projects that require single buttons, but what I really love the mixed button sets for are sweaters with the different buttons down the front. So fun!
And speaking of mixed button sets… Jeff and I thought it would be fun to do a little giveaway here. We’ll be giving away the set of buttons shown above to one lucky reader. The set includes a carved heart button in red cedar wood and another in Oregon juniper, and a chicken button in Oregon myrtlewood. The other buttons are curly maple wood, hickory wood, and black walnut wood. (The buttons range from 3/4 inch wide to between 3/4 and 1 inch wide.) I think it’s a really sweet set and I’m looking forward to seeing what one of you creates with it!
