This week I'd like to show you what I sent her.
Brenda's already posted her button reveal of what I sent on her blog, so I feel safe to show you too.
Let me admit that I sent more than the required four buttons as I am a little button crazy and I wanted to make sure she had lots of choices. So, I sent four vintage and four handmade/altered.
|I started with the four vintage buttons from my stash. The top left is a big metal shank button. Next to it is a mother of pearl button. Bottom left is a glass button and bottom right is a plastic button.
|I altered a clear plastic button to make this button.
|This button is one of my wood Shabby Buttons that I altered just for Brenda.
|I created this button with some Tim Holtz Grungeboard, paint, distress inks, and a dictionary page. I think it's super cool.
|Lastly (and I know it's hard to see) is this Precious Metal Clay (PMC) button I made. It's not fantastic as I'm still learning how to use the clay efficiently, but I still think it turned out pretty neat.
Of course, I sent all of the buttons in the button puzzle box (with puzzle included) since I thought it was pretty awesome.
So far, Brenda has reported that she likes the buttons so I'm a happy girl!
Brenda is so thoughtful, she even included me in a gorgeous Etsy treasury she made yesterday.
Speaking of Etsy, these earrings are new in my shop.

I'd love to know your opinions on the buttons I sent Brenda and how your own button creations are coming along. Now I must run as I've got a lot on my plate today. Toodles!
