Button Jars


Connie over at Crafty Goodies inspired me to make my own button jars. Since I had been admiring them for some time, I jumped right in and it was quite fun.

Jim also was more than happy to help me in this little endeavor....He is our grocery shopper and so he picked up the Starbucks coffees at HEB and proceeded to "get rid" of the coffee that was in them before he ever left the store parking lot....He knew I was on a mission so for the next 2 days he buzzed around the house after he fulfilled my dreams to "empty" those bad boys....

I love how it turned out and my favorite piece is the stickpin I made...I no longer buy them done, I have gotten quite crafty at makin my own....i few jewels from Hob/Lob, some alcohol inks and wahla, you're done....Click on the pic a couple times for a close up....

I am off today and planning on working on and in the craftroom so hopefully I'll have something new soon. Please come back and check and I'd love your comments...And btw, if anyone needs someone to drink those "cold coffee's" for ya, Jim is available, haha..

Be blessed!!!
