Well, we have been practicing a bit more on our Cake Topper ideas and this one I just LOVE!  Pink, aqua and red with little whimsy mushrooms surrounding a cherry blossom tree and a little blue bird. I have so many ideas for little rainbows and clouds, more elegant wedding toppers. These are FUN to make and are going to be so hard to part with :-)

This cake topper will be going up in the shop today!  We are now open to take custom orders for these little cuties. They are sturdy and durable and would make a great keepsake after your cake has been eaten!



All of the tall tree parts and branches are all reinforced with wire underneath the clay making them super durable to keep for a lifetime!


I had labels designed to match our logo last week and am excited to start sending them out! Customers, you will be receiving your packages wrapped pretty just like this!



Be sure to check back Monday! Rachel has created a fun tutorial!  Check out her blog for a sneak peek to her special project!  http://www.rachiesplace.com/

Have a wonderful weekend! Steve's mom is coming for a visit Sunday, so I will be getting our home "mother-in-law clean" clean..hehe!

Leslie's Project and Custom Orders Galore!!

The Button Shop has been extra busy this month with custom orders. I mentioned before that the knitting world has recently found and fell in love with using our buttons on their knitted sweaters. I receive many requests a day for buttons to match their yarn colorways. Each new request is exciting and brings my creavity to a new level.  



We have been booking quite a few kit clubs also. Already this year we have been featured in Noel Mignon.com Kits, Treasured Scrapbooking.com kits, ScrapTastic.com kits, Scrap Kits.com and we have a few more in the works. It  has been SO fun to create buttons that match the paper lines they are including in their kits.


And, today is Monday which means we have a Creative Team Member inspiration!  Today we have a gorgeous scrapbook page by Leslie Ashe. Leslie chose to work with our "Just The 2 Of US" Birds on wire set to create a super cute page.





This page is just a bonus!  Leslie is also on the Shimmerz Design Team and created this page for them using our "Vintage Inspired Button Set"  to embellish her page. These buttons are embossed in a vintage texture and washed with a metallic gold and sealed with a glossy finish. Lovely, huh?  You can find them here in the shop: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=44630416

Have a wonderful Monday!  Here are a few more favorite custom orders. Enjoy!

This sweet little set of baby seahorses was a custom request for a customer who's daughter has a baby seahorse that she has slept with since she was a baby. She is creating a keepsake sweater and wanted to include baby seahorse buttons. With her permission, I have a set like this one in the shop named after her sweet little girl, Hannah :)


Go Richland (Texas) Rebels!  RHS!!  A fun Cheerleading Team button set for a fun customer :)

A request for BlowFish buttons to be added to a little boy's knit sweater.

A request for a punk/boy themed set.
