I have been in a recovery period since Christmas and finally have some mojo back and have been spending time in my studio making Valentine cards.
I LOVED this Valentine card so much last year that I thought I'd see how many I could make to sell in my Etsy.com store. It has been ages since I listed anything there also but am at up for a test to see how the economy is doing for handmade papercrafts. I even sat down and remade my logo to finally match my name.
The buttons are from a huge tin my mother gifted me of many years ago. My sister always got mom's heirloom jewelry, etc. and I got a tin of buttons, tarnished silverplate, and the like. Gotta love those two, they always took such good care of me! Anyway, I have always marveled at how bottomless that tin has been and how metaphoric is was for my life so when I sat down to create my blog it came to mind, hence my blog name..."Musings from the Button Box".
I hope you've enjoyed my little bit of family history and will check out my listings on Esty.com and stop back soon.
I have a number of Magnolia Valentines to post and enter in challenges this week.
