Happy Groundhogs Day!

I guess that pesky groundhog saw his shadow and we are cursed with a long winter. Hasn’t it been long enough? And coming from my mouth, that must mean it has been an extra looong hard winter.

So today is day two of Thing-a-day. Yesterday I posted the above one of a kind, wearable artworks. I love everything mini, so creating original work in such a tiny space makes my heart sing.

Here is a picture of how the buttons look in progress. These one of a kind buttons are available in my shop.

Then today, I am trying to work on one of my 2009 goals of getting out my belated mail owed to people. What I have in mind is the project from the book 52 projects where you fill a regular office envelope with so much stuff it is swollen and then tape it closed to keep it safe and send it on it’s snail mail way.

So today, I’ve put together some more of these mini scratch pads from my recycled office paper. I quarter 8.5×11 and then on these particular books, cut in half again, and then staple a binding on them. Then I finish them off by using adhesive and pretty scrap papers to cover the stapled edges. Voila, pretty, pretty.
