Recently I mentioned I was on a quest for buttons. I'm a lazy quester so I have quested from the comfort of my sofa. The above picture is my win from ebay today. 14 jars of white, pink and tan buttons. Some with and some without shanks. 14 jars...$15.57. Thats $1.11 per jar. I'm thinking thats not a bad deal.

This picture is of 4 of the cutest kitten buttons that I bought last night on etsy. The link to the shop is: . This shop has some cutiepatootie goodies. You must check her out. Be sure and tell her how you found her. I just got an email from
howbeadyful at the etsy shop I linked above and she has agreed to give my blog readers a 10% discount on purchases from her shop. Be sure and convo her first, tell her you found her from my blog and she will create a custom choice for you with the discount. If you don't convo first she can't do the discount. She has agreed to this arrangement because she likes knowing her buttons are going to good homes. Send me a comment to tell me what you picked out.

I am still looking for more buttons. I've got my eye on some pretty little cameo buttons and some pink plastic buttons with cat faces. I have 2 sets of silver buttons on my button radar too. I talked about a banner I made in a class at Great American Scrapbook Convention in a post on Sammye Jo's blog at: . It was pretty and I really liked it but all the buttons were gold and I'm a silver kinda girl, hence the button quest. When I get all my buttons I am going to redo my banner and I'll post pics.
Now this is my first official post on my own official blog : . Please feel free to bookmark it, add to favorites or add it to your blog roll. I have had a pretend blog at my craftivity for almost 2 years but it's not the same as a real blog. I hope to keep you informed of my art escapades here, share tips and information regarding educational opportunities in the world of paper crafts. The only problem is me learning to use this new format. I am computer challenged. My daughter told me I had no bussiness being behind a mouse. Hopefully it won't take me long. My first challenge has been uploading pictures other than the ones I take myself. My son came over and gave me a tutorial using TinyPic. That is how I'm loading the pictures of the buttons. Now, from where I'm sitting all I see is letters, nunbers and symbols. I hope once I click on publish there will actually be a picture appear...We shall see.

Scrap that,


  1. WOW hon, you got some great buttons. I've been an avid collector myself ever since my grandmother would let me play with her button jar! Lots of pretties there!

  2. I am physically ill (really!) at the great deal you got on those buttons - I am SOOOO jealous! So, why are you desperately seeking buttons, Cheryl?

  3. wow! that is a lot of buttons! :)
