For Brandi's "Inspired by Art Materials" palette submission, I chose a tray of buttons that I have for use in various art projects. I love the subtle colors of these old buttons.

For some reason, buttons make me want to make things! They inspire by the form and functionality, I think. There's as interesting as beads to me, and I love that I got a huge can of buttons for $1 at a yard sale. What a steal!
I was last seen in the construction industry, wearing a hard hat and yelling at guys. Just kidding! I never yelled! My guys liked working with me, actually. But I was losing my creative self, which is very important to me. So... I left. I am also most happy when I'm helping to inspire people, either with my crafting posts, showing something amazing about nature, or sharing my latest favorite bookmaking project... I love working with my hands...oh to feel things! I am always looking for ways to expand my knowledge about nature, life, people, my art.... that's what this life is for, I believe.
