notecards

Have you ever had an idea in your head that won’t go away? These notecards have been buzzing around in my brain for months. I got the idea one day while sitting at my desk staring at a big bag of buttons. They were designed in my head for a few weeks when I finally needed to just sit down and get them out. I waited until M was taking a nap, did the layout, went to print them out and kablamo. Our printer jammed. Not just a little paper jam, but the ink carriage jammed. So then I had to wait for T fix the printer, which consisted of taking it apart, troubleshooting the RIP software and finally replacing a bad ink cartridge. Phew! I can’t believe how long it took me to finally get these cards out of my head and finished! Now they’re up in my shop. Price: $12.

    Julie,
    What do you think of using these as a baby shower invitation? I’m planning a shower for Chris and Amy and I ‘d love to use your cards with maybe a baby picture of C and A underneath and some appropriate text inside. Baby is a girl and I think these cards would be cute. I appreciate your input.
    Love, MK

  2. […] Remember when I had that cute-as-a-button card idea in my head and it just wouldn’t go away until I made them? Well, I’ve had another idea bouncing around in the ol’ cabeza for awhile: knitting with grocery bags. I didn’t invent the idea. Lots of people have been doing it for years. We even had a program on it at knitting group last month. That’s what really got me excited to try it. I had wound some plastic bag “yarn” using the loop method and planned to knit up two squares to make a zippered tote. I had a eight-inch zipper recycled from a pair of T’s old pants that I was planning to use. […]

  3. […] Remember when I had the button notecard idea that wouldn’t go away until I made them? Well, I had another one: button flowers. I don’t know where these bursts of button creativity come from. I’m not even that much into embroidery, but loved hand stitching the little stems and leaves. This idea wouldn’t stop bouncing around in my head so I put them on something small and easy to finish: a felted bookmark. […]
