Well, I've been having such fun with this swap. First, making the buttons that I sent to Teri Baskett, my partner, then getting her buttons in the mail and finally designing and making items I love with them. I hope Teri had as much fun as I did.
Now, making the buttons was a totally new adventure for me since I've made mostly beads and pendants before from polymer clay. The clay is so versatile I thought why not give it try. I did a little research into buttons for inspiration and found a whole new world to explore. I am totally hooked, pun intended! hi hi!
When I received Teri's package, I oohed and aahed then started dreaming of what I could make with the beauties. It took a little time but I used almost all of what she sent me and made some earrings and some bags. I just love everything I made, hope you do too.
Thank you Cindy for pointing me in this new direction for my art and Teri for the extra surprise of the bamboo handle. I love doing swaps they are just too much fun.
