I Make Buttons, Didja Know? & The Daily Dress

Today was one of the most productive days ever! Not that I don’t often have days like this, I just pushed extra hard since I have so much to get done for my first show of the year, in only TWO WEEKS – Toronto ComiCon on March 10 & 11!!! I will be away next weekend in Ottawa, visiting a very good lady pal (<3!) so I had to get as much done today as possible, just in case this week gets busy in the evenings… you just never know. I think I’m about ready to go, save a few minor finishing touches… oh and signage. Oh, and a display for totes. Oh and a few more bottle openers…. OMG I’M NOT EVEN CLOSE *minor freak out*

Ok, no I think I really am good to go 🙂

Anyway, in case you didn’t already know this about me… I make buttons! LOTS OF BUTTONS. And guess what? I take custom requests for bulk button orders. I have 2 fantastic, semi-automatic professional machines, in 1″ and 2.25″. I updated my Etsy today with the 2.25″ bottle openers, the 1″ buttons are already on there, and soon I will have 2.25″ buttons and pocket mirrors up there as well. (Possibly even tonight!)

I already had my first bottle opener order for bridal shower favours! (I posted about them last Sunday) which I thought was a very cool idea, and have a second order on deck. Woo! Busybusybusy.

If you’re interested in ordering any, just email me:

All the pricing is listed on my Etsy shop, and just because I heart you for following my blog, you can use coupon code BLOGFAN for 20% off 🙂

I also whipped up a Ryan Gosling keychain bottle opener… just because it had to be done.

The process of pressing buttons is sort of calming for me. I could do it for hours… actually, I have done it for hours, many, many times! My largest order so far was for 1000 1″ buttons, it was pretty intense but luckily I had a few months to complete it.

Hmmm what else did I want to tell you… oh yah! My guest blogger this week is going to be the very lovely and talented freelance make up artist, Miss Kristen Harper!

I’m very excited about sharing her awesome work with you! She’s a pretty cool lady, and I used to work with her back in the day as a visual merchandiser… but I don’t want to ruin Wednesday’s guest post!

Ok, I’m out! Signs to be made!

Here’s The Daily Dress – boring ol’ dress for chores and crafting. I also attempted a high bun for the first time… perhaps I might rock it in public sometime, it’s not too terrible I suppose.

Yoga Cat & The Daily Dress

I got off to a really slow start this morning, ol’ lazy bones… I guess I actually do relax once in a while! But now I’m regretting it because I had a ton of chores to do (cleaning, laundry) plus finish pressing those tees plus a Superbowl party! Eep! I ended up skipping out on the cleaning, the townie will have to suffer through one more week of messiness. At least last night’s craft binge was ridiculously productive and I feel pretty good about the amount of work left on my to-do list! Shows are coming up SO FAST.

I started today off with some yoga – for some reason, my kitty Rico is OBSESSED with me when I’m doing yoga. If I’m doing standing poses, he’s trying to climb up my legs, if I’m sitting poses, he’s in my lap purring and licking me or climbing up my back. He’s a bit of a health nut I guess, so maybe he just appreciates that I’m exercising? Maybe he really likes the scent of my sweat? Ewww! Who knows. Here is him in my lap today trying to join in the yoga goodness:

This was him last weekend before I even got started. So anxious to work out:

And here’s The Daily Dress for Superbowl Sunday! Just an FYI, I’m not into sports AT ALL and only go to this Superbowl party for the AMAZING food, to hang with some peeps, and visit with Sir Odin (the giant Dane puppy.) The dress is pretty summer-y so I had to winterize with a hat & scarf & cardi, as per usual 🙂 Not sure if I want to hang on to it or not… another one for the ‘maybe’ pile.

Ok, I’m off! So mad at myself for slacking this morning. Hope everyone had an awesome weekend!
