I thought I’d start off posting some fun button things I’ve spotted this week… I just adore this lovely embellished notebook cover project by my friend (and Button It Up contributor) Diane Gilleland! It’s such a cool idea, I especially love the circle pattern she did.
And my friend Kathy Cano-Murillo‘s new craft book, The Crafty Chica’s Guide to Artful Sewing, is out today! To celebrate, she is giving away a fantastic prize package — including this amazing Janome sewing machine, which she decorated with lots of fanciness, including some colorful rows of buttons.
One grand prize winner will receive:
* A custom-decorated Janome ThreadBanger TB12 sewing machine, decorated by Kathy herself, and featured in The Crafty Chica’s Guide to Artful Sewing (courtesy of Janome)
* A copy of The Crafty Chica’s Guide to Artful Sewing (courtesy of Potter Craft)
* Thirty (30) Jars of Crafty Chica Glitter (courtesy of Duncan)
* A custom-made Crafty Chica Picture Bracelet (courtesy of the Crafty Chica herself!)
All the details to enter are here on the CRAFT: blog… good luck!!
Today is two weeks until Button It Up is out, I’m very excited! Speaking of giveaways, I’m offering up two signed copies of the book and two hand-picked button stashes from my collection over on West Coast Crafty — just leave a comment on that post with a favorite button story or tip and I’ll randomly draw four winners a week from today.
I love the button stories people have told so far, don’t miss the comments!
