A Button Book for A Valentine and a Sneak Peak of Week 8 of 48 Weeks with Donna Downey

I had made this Valentine Button Book for a sweet swapper friend on Swap-Bot who is one of my favorite swappers......she spoils me whenever she has me so I always try to spoil her too! Well the theme was whatever the sender wished to make and since it was so close to Valentine's Day I thought it was perfect for her. Plus the images I used from Etsy were so adorable! The buttons I used are Prima Marketing

See the buttons are so adorable from Prima

The other button from Prima

The button book stacked up I really love how it turned out!

This is a close look at the images from Etsy

I was able to incorporate some sprays and inks too.....I used Clearsnap Cats Eyes the VALENTINE Stickers are from Martha Stewart I think????

Some more of the button book images

Hugs and Kisses for the Valentine

I used embroidery thread in the buttons

Another view and the ribbon I used for the button book
The SNEAK PEAK of week 8 with Donna Downey I skipped around a little this week I had a great thought while watching the video of Donna and I had to roll with it.....Mine are so different part of me wants to make what others are making but I kinda take the techniques and roll with them and that's just how I am....I really need to make the same thing but these images just "pop" in my head and I gotta go with gut!
You can see the ones on Donna's blog HERE of some of the classmates
I went yesterday to my appointment and I will be having surgery real soon coming up I will keep y'all posted on this event but I have to get a lot of things done and still do the so called norm...I am scheduled for a month away but it will be here QUICK! Too quick if you ask me but a necessity!
Also today I signed up for the up coming Art & Soul in Virginia Beach for October this year...yep I already picked my classes too....I'm thrilled and can't wait which seems like a really really long time away at this point. My friend Beverly say I should be teaching not taking classes but I still have soooo much I want to learn too! I sooo enjoy pushing out of my comfort zone!
Several weeks ago I signed up for Boots & Bliss with the ArtBLISS gals and let me tell you I am sooo ready and can't wait to join them! I will be taking the classes with Deryn Mentock
There is still spaces so come on join us.....
The boys have Dr.Seuss Day tomorrow at school and Coop and Dusty are dressing up like Harry Potter which we are big fans of...I'm excited!
Well until next time.....enjoy your day!!!
