Let's celebrate

I've been keeping a secret from you.

And it's been hard.

But the time has come to share!
Oh, look at Jack. He knows that something good is coming.
Look! What's that I see?
My button tree!

Right there, inside that book ! My button tree!

Talk about exciting.

Thank you Susan for asking me to be part of your gorgeous new book.
Because I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of Button it up , I made another tree to give away to one of you.
All you need to do is leave a comment here (be sure to leave a way to contact you please!).

Next week my trusty assistant and I will draw a name and send one of my button trees onto a new home to celebrate.

Don't forget to order yourself a copy of the super cute book online or look for a copy in your local bookstores around March 3.

You do know I will be in the Barnes & Noble taking a picture of it there, don't you? LOL (And if you lived closer I would make you go there with me, just to see my button tree in the bookstore.)

Good luck!

P.S. Want to see my other button crafts? I've made Mother's Day Cards , Button flowers , Button butterflies , Button candy canes , and a REALLY old one, a button wreath !

  5. This must be destiny! My grandma had a tree similiar to this when I was little. It was always on her dining room table around Christmas time, of course I never got to sit at the grown-up table and oogle it, I was shipped to the kids table in the kitchen. This would be a dream come true!!!
