Buttons galore....................

I'm a very A.D.D. person!  When I am home for a day working on projects, I get to the end of the day and have 4 projects started that must be finished.  The other day when I was cleaning out closets, etc. I came across a box with a lot of my sewing supplies in it.  I decided to sort through the box (since we have been her 2 1/2 years I guess it's ok to finish unpacking :).

I ran across these in the box.............................
you know what these are don't you! these are the little envelope of extra buttons that are hung on to a new piece of clothing.  I always save them - feel like it's the right thing to do!  But after years and years , AND no longer owning most of these items of clothing (some were dresses of Em's when she was little), I figured it was time to add them to my craft room button supply. So, I started opening envelopes and traveling down memory lane.
Yes, I actually owned pieces of clothing with the ladybug buttons (good ol' Christopher and Banks) and the green flower button.  Okay - these things may be fashion faux pas now, but what great crafts and scrapbook pages they will make!
Maybe it's time you empty all your little envelopes of buttons? I know you have some too!!

I came across your blog on accident while browsing... but saw your button collection and instantly thought of Amy and her Abbey Project. If you want another use for your buttons, I know she's always looking for buttons to keep her costs down. (theabbeyproject.blogspot.com)
