I don’t know why I’m doing this. It’s not like I relish admitting my hoarder-like tendencies. But, for some reason, I’m compelled to show you all my buttons.
|I have so many buttons I could open a button store.|
I have so many buttons that I can never find the right button when I need one. I think about organizing them by color or size or both, but I never get around to it. Man, can you imagine how long that would take? Instead, I use random containers to store them. I think I have buttons in every room of my house. Yes, even the bathrooms!
|To be honest, I think there's one tin missing. . . like I need more!|
Just a couple days ago, I wrote briefly about going to a Valentine making party (check that out here). I pulled out a bunch of red, white and pink buttons to use for embellishment. I even had some heart-shaped buttons. Of course I did! How could I have this many buttons and not have heart shaped ones? The law of averages is against it.
I know, deep in my heart, that one day, inspiration is going to strike and I’m going to have an idea for a project that is going to require hundreds of buttons. Thank goodness, I’m ready. When you’re a crafter, you have to plan for these things.
