Bead & Buttons

Check them out! I finished the wool beads, all 118 of them! My husband became my "assistant" when he got home from work. He was still in his work uniform and ever so sweetly started helping me wet felt my beads. With his help, I was able to complete this project in half the time. He's so supportive and loving when it comes to my feltmaking and crafting obsessions. And he's a pretty good feltmaker himself! Most of these beads are going to a consignment order, but some of them will be packaged and listed for sale in my shops or made into some nifty items. Hmmm . . . now I have to think of some innovative crafty things to do with some of them.

I received my promotional 1" flat-backed buttons today from a fellow etsy seller, kittycrossbones. They are wonderful, and I highly recommend her etsy shop to all looking for great promos! I ordered 100 buttons and had five designs - my logo, I "heart" felt, I "heart" sheep, a photo of my wool beads, and a photo of one of my favorite flower brooches. I plan to make some of them into rings, pendants, magnets, etc., to sell in my etsy and ecrater shops. I wasn't sure how I would like them or if they would be useful, but I'm completely sold on them and will certainly be back for more in the future. I just think that they are too cute and can't wait to use them!
