Button, button, I found all the buttons!

I've finally decided to do a booth at a craft show in April (yay, bravery!) Mind you, it's just at my son's elementary, but there's nothing wrong with starting small. And now I have to fill that booth.

Step stools for kids (check!)

Crazy little flowerpot candleholders (check!)

Notecards and big cards (check!)

Lots of empty space still to fill (yikes!)

I have plenty of ideas, though. The vintage buttons I found at the antique store have inspired me. All the shades of linens and clothing from the 1930s and 40s, some with the old fabric still attached.

More to come! Happy spring!

Ideas on a rainy rainy day

I had an idea yesterday that I just LOVE! But I don't want to ruin it by churning it out too quickly. I find that if I let the really good ideas sit for a day or so, they expand and change into something better. So, I'll have my sketchbook at hand all day, and see if inspiration strikes.

Don't you love one of those moments? When something you've thought or figured out just makes you giddy?

Here's a tiny part of it, in sketchy sketchy form.
Happy Tuesday!
