Buttons!

Me no likey this post today! Two things that kind of bother me - having my photo taken and buttons!

Her Space : My Space

This weekend we are introducing two new features to HSMS, just to keep you on your photography toes! The first of these will be a new regular 'Self Portrait Saturday'. Take the opportunity once a week to practise your portrait skills and make a record of your changing self.

So, go for it !!! ...S.P.S = self portrait saturday


I don't like myself in photos so here is a too early in the morning, desperately need to buy some make-up, hiding behind grubby hair shot!

This week's dare from the Daring Card Makers -

I know you've all got buttons stashed away somewhere, whether they've been purchased at a cardmaking store or you thriftily snipped them off DH's old shirt. I'd like you to find those buttons and use them somewhere on a card. They can be real buttons, craft shop buttons, die cut buttons, faux buttons or another type of button, surprise us all.

Those who know me will know I'm not fond of buttons. They have a place and a function and that is what they should do. They shouldn't be lying around loose or used as decorations. However, I do have a supply of craft buttons which I bravely use as cognitive therapy!!
Bright and sunny here today and as SMO's home I think the park is beckoning.
