Something new...


Well here we are in November... not long until Christmas!  EEEkkk!! How exciting! Hmm guess I should think about some Christmas presents for family and friends... are you all prepared?

What have I been up to??

I have been experimenting again!

Oooh but with something I have been meaning to try for a while now..

Not sure what you all think but I LOVE buttons... anything to do with them actually!  The size, shape and colour.. ooh and I love all the wonderful shaped buttons these days too.

Been looking into this a little more and decided to have a go at making my own buttons!  EEEkkk I know exciting right?!  Oh well I was and am still really excited about it!  I  mean... I can make my own buttons?!  Crazy right?! 

Well I did!!

Jon sourced be a started set of 'Fimo' oven bake clay and well I got creating! ha ha 

Here is what I got up to...

Rolled out some brown and started to roll tiny balls of colour and add them..

Adding the little rolled balls here...


Then they are set into the brown...

And filled the brown up...

Then cut some shapes out...

Baked in the oven then varnished.... and finished!

I really love them... they come out so good, better than I had expected.  So I can put them on my stitching.. make what ever I like really!  Oooh SOOOOOOOOOOOO exciting!

What do you think? 
Do you like them?
What should I make next?

Love to know what you all think :)

Oooh back to the stitching I think... then I can add some of my wonderful buttons!
