How pegs took over my life......

....for a couple of days anyway!  Remember my last post?  And remember how I said the set that was featured already had sold and I hoped people popped over to my shop to see what else I had for sale.  Well guess what?  THEY DID.  8 times.  So needless to say I've been Fridge Magnet Peg making ever since :P  I would make a set, and put them in the shop, and they'd sell instantly, so I'd relist the pegs, thinking to myself, I'll make them tomorrow.. but they'd sell, so I'd have to make them immediately so I could ship them to the lovely lady, and so it continues, 8 times haha!!  That will teach me to not list something until it is made!  BUT it was fun.  It's nice to know people out there like what I am making!  So I don't want to bore you with too many details.. but here are a few piccies :)
A couple of sets drying.
Postpacks getting filled with completed orders.
Some of my basic Fridge Magnet Pegs making tools and supplies.
More supplies :)
Madeit was offline most of yesterday after doing some upgrades and the Internet Providers not recognising the upgrades and not wanting to let people back onto the site.  I was secretly cheering that it gave me a few extra hours to catch up a little!! And catch up I did... look what else I've listed in the shop!

I also did a custom Red Collection, and foolishly forgot to photograph it.  Which means I'm obviously going to have to make another, because it looked flippin fantastic!
Sorry for the photo overload!  Have a great day xo

I love being featured on Madeit. It's only happened once before today.  It just makes me so happy.  It makes all your hard work worthwhile don't you think?

The best part is, I only just popped these gorgeous Fridge Magnet Pegs in the shop a couple of days ago!  Oh wait, there's an even betterer part, the set has already sold!  Hopefully people will pop on over to my shop and discover the other gorgeous sets of Fridge Magnet Pegs I have listed at the moment :)

Zip it, or Button it?

I recently stumbled across two GIGANTOR tubs of buttons at the Thrift Store.  I of course purchased them.  I had no idea what I was going to do with all those buttons.... but I knew I had to have them!  

I've been having fun going through these buttons.  Many of the really special ones have made it into my button collection box.  

I've been brainstorming all the other beautiful things I can make with these buttons.  And I've made a few things already.  

What's funny, is I've made 4 things so far, and the tub of buttons I was using... you can't even notice that I've taken ANY out.  The tub is that huge my friends. 

Just think of how long you are going to be looking at button projects now.  Oh dear.. I hope you all like buttons as much as I do, cause you're going to be seeing ALOT of them.

Oh and I have a fascination with zips too.  This is the first successful attempt I've had at incorporating them into a funky accessory.  Many beautiful vintage, unique zips have been wasted in the past.  Hopefully only good things can come about in the future.  Cause lets be honest, I suck at sewing zips into clothing.  I need to find other uses for them.  Did I mention I have a whole tub of zips too?
