Getting crafty !

 Winter time - it's a slow season, days are getting  dark and long blending into the nights. It's a indoor season when  family time gets nourished from every side and angle, and one of the best ways to stay close, content and happy is to share moments of creative adventures. My kids like to sum this up in a great line: " Mom,don't worry it's cold outside. Lets get crafty ! " I have been hearing this every day, so we craft ...a lot :).

  Here is our new little obsession cover buttons. Yes, we have been making those for last few days and every single new button brings out smiles and amazement. I have been saving my precious fabrics scraps from all my sewing projects from my store, so now girls have a huge selection of patterns and colors to play with.


  These cute and sweet cover buttons bring tons of possibilities. They can be used to fancy up pony holder or headbands, so I got tons of those as well, just because girls can't stick to one color . Threddies is a great  Etsy store with great supplies when you have too many favorite colors.  You can also make endless amounts of button covered magnet collections using unique patterns and colors. The process of making button is pretty easy and very satisfying , kids 6 and up should be able to do it with a little bit of guidance . Honestly, I was holding myself back from taking over this craft, it is really a lot of fun. At this crafting speed most likely I will have to order more supplies next week, so far we liked this Basil and Fluffy for our supplier.


 And when the late night comes and all the kids are in bed, yes, mama instead of working sneaks few button cover projects here and  there. I will be posting those shortly. Happy Crafting everyone. Stay warm, happy and creative during these long days.


  1. Hello there - calling by after seeing you on Blogging Buddies forum today. Great idea for using up material scraps and keeping young fingers busy!

    Will be following your blog from now on, so hope you'll return the favour by reading and following mine - it's, where I post about the toys I make, mend or otherwise create (using up scraps here too, I might add!). Hope to see you and your daughters there sometime soon. Meanwhile, all the best!
