April Artist Feature- Let's Welcome The Talented, Ann Corbiere-Scott!!

My name is Ann Corbiere-Scott and I love art! I love everything about art, the colors, the textures, the whimsy! So is it any wonder why I adore Tessa Ann's darling buttons!

I am a proud member of the Ready Set Create Creative Team, an fabulous online magazine. The layout you see here is the one I created with the buttons Tessa Ann generously shared with us. Tessa Ann's delicate and detailed artwork is second to none, and certainly whimsical!



Ann worked with our "Retro Blue Bird" button collection to embellish her lovely scrapbook page. 

I have a degree in graphic design and am always on the lookout for opportunities to stretch my creative spirit and tell my family’s story. I love stories, telling them, listening to them, reading them, writing them, I just love stories!

I live with my 2 favorite people in the world-my amazing husband, Geoff and my beautiful daughter, Miranda, we also cohabitate with 3 of the cutest doggies around, Max, Sophie and Soloman. We live in sunny Arizona and love it!
I have taught scrapbooking and art related classes for a little over 10 years, ranging from basic scrapbooking to advanced art projects, and pretty much everything in between. I am delighted to be a member of the Xyron design team, my artwork has been featured in Xyron print ads in Scrapbooks etc, Memory Makers, Hobby Lobby's Stamping, Stationary and Scrapbooking and Creating Keepsakes magazines. I have also created art projects that were featured on Home Shopping Network and Lifetime during Xyron segments. Additionally I am a proud member of the Ready Set Create Creative Team

I create art everyday and hope you do too!

New ideas!

Hello!  I hope everyone had a great weekend. Friday night we to see Cash Levy at The Tower Theater. Cash is a comedian and totally hilarious. He was actually in Bend to film his tv special. We ended up sitting in the section where he talks to the audience. Steve had a camera less than 3 inches from his face, and I was sitting right next to him. Oy. That was uncomfortable..ha!  But, his routine was HILARIOUS. I love comedians that base their jokes around everyday life and he does this so well. He even opened the show with jokes about Bend and his experiences visiting here. He was spot-on.lol. We do have a Dutch Brother's at every intersection and we are a total earthy,organic, beer drinking, bike riding town :) Haha!. His jokes were great and I had a wonderful time.

The Button Shop has been very busy this month, especially with custom orders. A lot of the knitting community has found our buttons and we have been having a blast working with designers to create custom buttons to match yarn colorways. We have created marbled buttons that are in the same colors of the yarn. We have created super cute tiny 1/2" buttons with little pears on them for an infant sweater and on and on. We have about 20 custom orders going at any given time of the month and squeeze in a few rush custom orders when possible. Custom orders are so inspiring. I love bringing someone's idea to life and seeing it come together with their project.  I am loving creating buttons to match fabrics from  Michael Miller Fabrics for my customers sewing projects. The patterns and designs are so adorable and such a great match for my buttons!    

Don't think I am not going to just talk about all of my buttons and not share pictures :-D  Have a great night!  Thanks for stopping by :-)





























PS: (These little buttons are a new idea for the shop. They are a tiny 1/4" size and we thought they would be adorable in these tiny little bottles. This has us thinking up all other ways to store and showcase buttons!
