The heading should actually read “my creative mess”, because this is what it looks like
I needed some buttons for a couple of projects I am working on, but I have been getting really frustrated with the state of my button collection recently. It used to be nicely organised by colour in several zip lock bags kept together in a drawer. But the collection has grown, and as I have added to it I have not been sorting, so it turned it to a huge mess of buttons which are half organised and half chaos.
So I tipped them all out, intending to finally get them sorted and put away nicely so the perfect button can be found in a more timely manner. However, little man has decided to throw his routine out the window today, no decent nap times for me to work uninterrupted, so my buttons have been thrown in a drawer loose and unsorted and will have to wait for another day (or so). At least I won’t have to go through a million zip lock bags to find a button anymore, I will just have to sift through a trillion loose buttons (which is way more fun, I’m like scrooge mcduck swimming in his money).
I wish I had the space to have all my crafty items on display like this
This is one of the projects that required buttons:
A thrift store hat which needed a bit of embellishment. I added a couple of rolled fabric flowers, a lace flower with button centre and a few coordinating buttons, and now I have another awesome hat to cover my hideously overgrown, in desperate need of a cut and colour, housewife hairstyle.
