Treasury Thursday :: all buttoned up.

I know I say it every week, but it’s so much fun to assemble a treasury based on a challenge…it gets me out of my own zone and on the hunt for things I might not otherwise seek out.   It’s good to see things differently!

When I was a kid, my mom was always asking, ‘what do you want for dinner?”   I never had a good answer and couldn’t figure out why she was always asking ME…she was the mom! 🙂  Now, I get it  and gosh darn it if I don’t do the same thing! Thinking of what to cook is harder than pulling the meal together…once you have a plan, the rest is fun.  And, the same is true here!

So, this week, my hat is off to Kate over at A Creative Cookie for her idea of buttons!    And, once you spend even just a few minutes on her blog, you will realize she really is in fact one creative cookie. Wow! I have visited her blog many times and have a few ideas bookmarked, so it was great to spend a little more time ‘getting to know her’ so I could introduce her to all of you!

What’s fun is that one of her recent tutorials is the perfect match to the buttons…a necklace made from a spool of thread! You can find tutorials for all things creative over at A Creative Cookie…from holiday fun, jewelry, fun for kids, creative organizing, tips and techniques and ideas for parties.  And that’s not all, she has a super duper list Link Parties, and if you are looking for a little bit of the spotlight, go see Kate and chat about advertising and give aways …she’s got that covered too! Stop by and say hello;  you can find her on Facebook too!

I love buttons, and check this out.  When I put the word button into the Etsy search tool, any guesses on the number  of items that popped up?  Go on, take a guess.  Did you guess 371,673 items?  Didn’t think so! Buttons show up in so many ways:  necklaces, bracelets, every kind of vintage button you can imagine, fabric, painted, wood, ceramic. There are giant buttons, oh so petite buttons. Buttons you can eat, buttons you wash up with…there is a button for everyone! Kate, I hope this inspires your creativity…it will be be fun to see what button projects you come up with.

Hope you all enjoy all the amazing items made by such creative Etsy shop owners.  View the Treasury in Etsy and below…
