LOVE these!! Kelly and I wanted to make them last year and said we would collect buttons throughout the year to make them this year and never did. I may just have to go buy the 4 bags...I WILL make one this year :) Love your card below too. I love how you put "so blessed" on it. Good idea. (Mine is done I just left my camera at my parents so I will post it tomorrow)

Cute trees!! I love all the "craftyness" in the air.

Happy Thanksgiving weekend!

she lies....we didn't use 4 whole bags of buttons...we bought 4 bags, but really only used 2 full bags and a few from my stash...we did pick through all of the bags to gather the right colors and cutest buttons!

Ahhh yes, the love/hate relationship of the button tree. I think I had to go out three times to finally have all the pins and buttons to complete mine. But I do love it and wish I would have collected throughout the year so I could have added a few more this year ... maybe next year.

And I'm pretty sure the fun colorful one is yours ... see you are fun in every aspect of your life ;). I really like it ... does it have a happy home yet?
