Happy New Year

Happy New Years everyone! I wish everyone a very prosperous, healthy and happy New Year. I also hope you had a wonderful holiday season whatever holiday you celebrate this time of year.

I know I've neglected my blog for quite some time and I hope to get back to providing updates on a more frequent basis. I do post images on my buttons by robin facebook page so you can always find some newer images there or of course in my shop which is my Etsy shop.

I've been very busy making buttons for the holiday season and I'd like to thank all my customers who made it a very successful season in the button shop! Thank you all so much. I hope to see you back in the New Year and I hope that many of you that haven't found me yet will venture on over to Etsy and have a look.

Above is a picture of some of my buttons drying. It's not the prettiest picture but crafting is kind of messy until you get to the end product.

For 2011 I'm going to be adding hair accessories and button jewelry to my shop. I want to use these as more of a showcase to give you some ideas of some of the wonderful things you can do with my buttons. If you want to use them in items in your Etsy shop, your own website or anywhere I'm perfectly fine with that. I'll even post pictures and a link here if you like to help promote your items. Even if you make hair accessories or jewelry similar to those I make that's perfectly fine. There is room for all of us and, as I mentioned, I'm not really into the hair accessory business - my main thing is the buttons themselves - so I have no problem. I'm sure your creations will have your own spin and special touch and I'd just love to have you use my buttons and hope in some small way they they'll help make your projects just that bit more special.

Well off to post some new Valentine's Day and Easter buttons in my shop. Then making a late New Years dinner for the family - since my husband will ill yesterday and we weren't really able to have a proper family celebration!

All the best everyone!
