♥ cozy ♥

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!

It was just Steve and I this year, so I cooked up a storm all day creating a wonderful, scrumptious meal for just the 2 of us.

We all ended our day looking pretty much like Duffy below. Cozy on the couch. ♥

Every since I've set out my Holiday Bear, Duffy has found his new BFF. He loves cuddling with this bear each night. Yeah, it's pretty cute.

He was sound asleep when I was snapping these photos. He didn't even budge.

Cozy ♥

I mentioned in a previous post, that I had purchased a mini pink tree at Michael's for The Button Shop. It stands about 2 feet tall and came pre-lit.

It's hard to see from the photos, but I used buttons and some red and white bakers twine to create a button garland. It came together pretty easily and I was able to use up some of my button remnants.

Another detail that is a bit hard to see in the photos is the tulle. I stuffed clusters of tulle throughout the tree, kind of giving a soft effect against the white lights. I tied a bow around the top of the tree, as I didn't have a topper. But, I have some ideas brewing for that. So, it's a still work in progress :) I'll show the complete tree when it's finished!
Well, with the holiday season, The Button Shop has been extra busy. I've been spending umpteen amounts of hours each day creating buttons being sold in the shop and several really cute custom orders.

I received a request to create buttons that complimented the awesome Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg line. My customer was creating an album using this line and wanted some unique embellishments for it. I created these for her :) I custom-mixed all of the colors in this set to create colors to compliment the papers she was working with. I loved working with this color combination.

Inspired by my buttons in the shop called, Oh, Snap!, a customer requested multi-colored cameras in these colors. This was so fun and totally reminds me of an Andy Warhol art image. I am still trying to master a good vintage Polaroid and other vintage cameras. That and a big book of other things I am wanting to try on buttons :)

In lieu of Black Friday, I am having a little gift with purchase (a set of buttons) sale over at The Button shop. Sign up to be a fan of mine on Facebook, and you will receive free shipping. Click on this link to sign up! *CLICK HERE*

Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Wishing you and your family a blessed Thanksgiving!

There is so much that I am grateful for this time of year and so many blessings to look back upon. Steve and I are going to be solo this year, but I have a nice dinner spread planned for us. I'm looking forward to spending the day cooking delicious food for my guy and I.

What do you have planned for this year? Staying in or going out of town?

What are you Thankful for?

Leave a comment answering one of those questions and I'll select a winner for a set of buttons from The Button Shop!

I will post the winner on Monday 11/30/09. Please leave your email address in your comment so I can get in touch with you!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!
