oooooh the prettiness!!

I've been taking stock of 'stuff' for the new year - when you craft its easy to acquire a lot of equipment and embellishements along the way and then its easy to lose track of what you've got (and appreciate and use what you've got!) so this little book was more practical than creative...... I made a 'little book of bling' (using my lovely bind-it-all machine) using cardboard and coasters and put all my types of 'bling' in it (diamante's and sparkly bits I can see what I've got and hopefully seeing them will inspire me to use them.... (and yes, this may be a sort of filing . . . . the administrator in me rises to the surface again every-so-often!! but that's not always a bad thing..)

But then having said that (about having too much) I was on the Craft Obsessions site the other day and they had bags of buttons for sale - ooooooh!! All lovely and colour co-ordinated! Normally I would go into charity shops for buttons for crafting - there is something lovely about sorting around in a button tin (unless you find the 1 upholstery tack that ALL buttons tins seem to have (why is that?) with the tip of your finger - OUCH!)

I digress - put buttons on the list (with ribbon and paper) of items you can never have too many of (unless you're a friend of ours (who shall remain nameless) that has a phobia of buttons) . . . . just sorting through them to find the perfect button is very satisfying!! (and no, I don't need to get out more, thanks very much!! lol)

When Hero Arts described this pack as 'tiny buttons' they weren't kidding were they ?!? lol
