I got two lovely bits of button-themed post recently...
First up: the launch issue of Stitch Craft Create, a new magazine from the publishers of Sew Beautiful. It's filled with fresh festive projects, and features the giant buttons I sell in my shops on several of its pages...
My 3inch wooden buttons make an appearance in the "crafter's stocking"...
... and in the fun "Christmas button bash" feature which includes ideas for button-y party invites, food, gift-wrap and decor.
My 5inch wooden buttons also make an appearance in the button party:
You can read more about the launch issue of Stitch Craft Create over on their website. You can find it on newsstands in most craft, hobby and bookstores across the US now, or order a copy online. (If you're not in the US, don't despair! Check out my next post for your chance to win a copy...)
And what was my second bit of button-themed post? One of these babies:
Just look at the size of that button! It's a wooden trivet by German designers Snug Studio, measuring a massive 25cms (10inches) across.
I don't even have a kitchen of my own at the moment & all my other cooking equipment is packed up in boxes but how could I resist such wondrousness? Simply put: I couldn't.
I bought my trivet from their DaWanda shop after spotting it in the DaWanda winter Lovebook but you can also shop from them over on Etsy.
