Feeling the (button) love....

...You guys..... !!

I'm quite lost for words.


You truly are wonderful, caring and thoughtful.... and I feel blessed to be a part of this community.
When Cam dropped by my house today, I thought it was to give a belated Easter Egg to the smallest in the house. She handed me a big parcel containing countless vintage buttons, cards and sweet, sweet words....all sent from different corners of the crafty Blogosphere and each one wrapped in a unique and beautiful way.

I loved reading each note - the stories behind the buttons and the thoughts that went with each gift. (And I loved the chocolate, Kate!)

A huge thank you to Christina, Cam and ... oh, if I do ll these links, I'll be here all night.... THANK YOU EVERYONE who was a part of this "cheer-up project".

I can confidently assure you that your mission was accomplished!!

I'm so glad you like all of your new/old buttons. I know they will never replace the one you lost, but just know that you are admired and respected by many. Have fun with them! Nic x

Christina said...

Exactly as Nic says, they're not a replacement, but hopefully they will inspire you in the future! I spy some real beauties there. :)

Cam's original call-to-button email put a smile on my dial. I am so, so pleased there's a smile on yours. X

I lurve the green button in the third photo. It's in close proximity to another button that looks strangely familiar! Glad they've cheered you up. Secretly hoping mine gets used in the most amazing project ever! ;-D
