Butterflies, Buttons, & Crochet--ah, life is good!

« on: January 06, 2007 11:52:47 AM »

Many of us collect buttons, as well as use them as the main focus in some of our craft projects. They don't really fall under any other category--not that I could see, anyway--so I was thinking a section dedicated just to them and the many ways we use them and keep them would be a great idea. Being the proud owner of 5 jars & a basketful of buttons, as well as some items I've made, I'd be happy to have such a place to display them. Heck, I'd even volunteer to moderate it! Cheesy

Any thoughts on this idea?

Buttons aren't a craft, just a supply.  While I do agree they are fun items to use, we would also need a ribbon, paint, yarn...etc. etc, board too!

How about making a BUTTON CRAFT Craft-a-long!  Then all the button lovers could unite and show off their button obsessive crafts?  There could be button jewelry, button ATCs, button art.... it would be fun!

I agree w/ OY.  Buttons can be made into many different things, and used of different projects, so a board of their own doesn't make much sense.  Plus, extra boards cost extra time and money, which we're running low on!!  Cheesy

But a craft-a-long is a great idea!

Some button lovers should start one, several of the ATC-lovin'-crew adore buttons on cards, we can all play along!

I agree w/ OY.  But a craft-a-long is a great idea!

Whew!  I finally got an answer correct in my little 'WW-a mod-Do' game!  Tongue

Krazygal-thanks for that info about supporting craftster-I just sent my $12 to become a FOC:) I also think we should have a sellathon thing where folks can send in handcrafted items to sell to raise money for craftster-what do ya think?

I also think a button craft a long is a SPIFFY idea:)
