Buttons, Buttons, and more Buttons!

I have a lot of 'maintenance' work to do this week, in addition to my normal day-to-day projects. I need to update my website and shops; update logo and banner; and, the organization of supplies and items.

Today, I chose to go through my button stash and organize by color. All of my buttons were kept in a colorful plastic tool box. I bought mason jars from a local thrift store a while ago. Good find and buy! The manager gave me a box of 12 (various sizes) for $5.00!

It was actually fun going through the stash! I found vintage buttons that were attached to pretty cards.

And, after a year and a half of procrastination...I finally can look through my button stash with ease and find the right one for a project!

Good for you! Haven't sewn much in years, but my sis and I always LOVED buttons....still do. Hope to sew again "one of these days."

PS. Just started following you on Twitter as HealingOilsTips. Have been enjoying looking at your creations.

Am also an artist. Check out my blog: www.SpringMoonFineArtPrints.com when you have time.

Thank you Cynthe, for following! I hope you sew again, soon! Isn't it funny?...how something as simple as buttons can make someone happy! I continue to buy them, take them off of clothing that is stained before discarding. I even sometimes purchase items for the buttons. I will definitely go and check out your blog. Wishing you happiness and success!

I have been procrastinating about organizing craft/sewing supplies, too... I really like the mason jar idea!
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
