Buttoning Down

Apologies from six days away from the blog. As I said in the last entry, the 26th was my birthday (!!!) and I had a lot of work to do preparing to take a day off. It’s satisfying and terrifying to need that much planning for one day away from crafting!

I’m currently working with a bunch of Etsy folks on possibly having a holiday craft fair. I will of course be posting updates on that as things develop, but for now there isn’t much to say. I’ve contacted a few venues and have gotten no response so far. It’s very frustrating, but I will try my best to be patient.

Speaking of craft fairs, I will also be sharing a booth with several other members of SFEtsy at Bazaar Bizarre, at the San Francisco County Fair Building, Sunday, November 30th. I will be there for the second half of the day. Hope to see you there!

I was going to call this entry “Buttoning Up” but it’s been way too hot to think about buttoning anything up at all! I’m totally slacking today because it’s so warm. This weather makes me all droopy.

But anyway, after having the poor little bisqued guys sitting on my shelf for a while, I finally got a big batch of buttons (so many b’s!) glazed and fired, and they’ve been finding their way into the shop this week. I made some more of the little shanks, plus some neato new designs, based on some vintage buttons I’ve been collecting. Here’s a sampling:

Gun Metal Green Wing Ceramic Buttons

Faceted Orange Ceramic Shank Buttons

Pistachio Wagon Wheel Ceramic Shank Buttons

The Etsy Five feature will be returning either tonight or tomorrow!

(I’m big with the alliteration today, aren’t I?)

  • I like those blue-green buttons, very pretty! Did you mold them from a real shell?
