So this is the beginning of sorting out my button collection! This is the contents of one large cake tin, an ice cream tub and another small tin that I have collected from Mum, my Grandad (who was a tailor) some I have bought and some from Freecycle. Eliza helped me to sort this lot last night and we continued today with another HUGE tin that are much older. It was too dark to take a pic of them tonight and we still have lots to go, but many are very early vintage ones. I am a bit freaked out by the hairy, thready bits so Eliza is gradually snipping them off for me and adding them to the collection! Now I know I will use them much more as I can find exactly what I want with ease! Anyone know a good project for tons of beige/brown buttons?
This weeks Journal page is "Home... what does it mean to you, use a heart stamp and a picture of a house". Broke out the Distress Inks for this one. I used a brush for the BG and then watered them down to paint the houses. I am not really too bothered about the bricks and mortar of the building we live in as for me, home is wherever we happen to be, all together. Maybe that is a bonus of having a big family!
I am a married mother of four who took up papercrafting about 4 years ago. I started with ATCs and Inchies and as I got braver I started to Scrapbook too! My current faves are stamping CJs (oooo just love 'em), scrapbooking and making mini books with the shedloads of photos I take!As you can imagine I have to fit it round the children and also numerous pets so blogging can be a bit hit and miss! Generally I blog better in school holidays when I am not at work as a TA. Thank you for popping by and I hope you like what you see here!
