Special Order: Color

I have a friend at church who is a little bit addicted to the buttons I make.  :)

Every now and then I get an e-mail from her with more custom button requests.  These are always fun orders to fill.  Not only because she's such a fun lady, but also because her orders are always so full of color!

Well, my #1 customer has apparently been spreading the love.  Because a few days ago I got an e-mail from one of her friends (another really nice, fun lady that we go to church with) asking if she could order some buttons.  I said of course and we e-mailed back and forth a little about when the buttons would be ready and, in the end, both of these fun ladies had added to the order and had dreamed up several fun buttons for me to make.

These are only a few of the buttons they ordered, but I just had to photograph these bright, cheery colors.  They just shout SUMMER to me!  Does anyone else feel like summer is just around the corner?  Or is that just me?

I keep thinking things like, "I better enjoy this non-humid weather because soon it's going to be hot hot hot outside," and "I better enjoy these non-AC days because soon I'm going to want it on full blast."  On the other hand, I'm also looking forward to a certain little girl running around in her swimsuit, jumping in kiddie pools and running through sprinklers again.  And outdoor cooking.  And--hello!--summer vacation.

Sigh.  :)  Here's to enjoying what's left of spring.  And looking forward to all the happy, sunny days ahead.

Thanks to my favorite local customers for giving me such fun, bright, cheery orders to fill!  :)


The buttons shown in this post are colorful versions of the Jumbo Handmade Button -- Classic White With Scallop Lace Edge (shown above) available in my shop.  If you'd like to place your own colorful custom order, feel free to contact me!

Logan is such a tease. Earlier this week it was BEAUTIFUL warm sunny weather. The past couple of days have been rainy and windy. Snow is in the forecast for this weekend. Aw, Spring, you temptress.
