Collecting...BUTTONS!

I am especially adamant that buttons be a part of every creation.
It's a declaration.
And in support of this declaration,
I have established a vintage button collection
that is quite tantalizing.
I've posted pictures of them here.

Also, on the side, a little vintage paper doll collection is brewing. I'm in love with the fifties clothing designs, especially for children. I'm looking forward to creating some of my own. Another ebay conquest:

And, today: a new background for this stark little blog.
I'm learning how to fiddle with the html or whatever it is. Hurray!

Blog Banner


I've designed a protype blog banner. I'm going to keep it for a while and see how I feel about it. The font is good, but I would like a smoother connection between the letters. Mr. Crab may evolve; we'll see.

Hello, World!

It's time to begin my adventures in turning my fun times with art and making things into a little business! Such an undertaking deserves a dedicated blog, I think.

A few weeks ago, I decided that I should just go for it. My husband and family have been absolutely so supportive and encouraging.

In progress right now:
  • How to become an LLC
  • Designing a banner (hee hee!)[Edit: done!]
  • Making lots of stuff
What's really hard:
  • Figuring out how to define your own style
  • Narrowing your focus to just a few things.
I've decided to focus on a few sewn things and a few arty-paper things. This weekend, I MIGHT just share a picture of my first round of joocee treats.
