Make Your Own Buttons

Hoo-Boy, I really love these buttons! I was browsing CraftStylish and fell for the project only to find that it's designed by my favorite CraftyPoder, Diane. No wonder I like it. Bag makers take note. It's the details that count and this one has some of my favorite attributes. It's interesting, cost effective, green, materials are easily available and the step by step photos and text are great.

See what I miss when I walk away from the computer for a period of time? Sometimes I just have to do it so I can hear my own internal voice.

Printable Butterfly Paper Craft

My favorite Queen of Paper, Patricia of Agence Eureka, has shared two pages vintage butterflies on her flickr page. She even cleaned the images and offers them without the backgrounds. In her blog comments she says that they are meant to have motion but she may have used a paper that is too heavy.

When I was with the Friends of the Scappoose Library seedlings were our best sellers at our spring booksale. This tip would have helped to save us from a shortage of recycled pots. Brought to you by Little House in the Suburbs. Check out her printable Garden Planners.

Lately I've been very interested in lighting of all kinds.
Love this faux capiz shell idea by Monica Ewing of Craftynest.
