Yesterday, I unearthed the Badge-a-Minit that I purchased last year. I had no success with it on the first try so I stuffed it in a drawer. I don’t know what prompted me to pick it up again, but I’m glad I did. I’ve been turning little doodles into wearable buttons.

I’m not sure if I’m going to list them or not. I figure I’ll give them a test drive. What do you think? Here are a few. The rest can be seen on my Flickr.

Even a Hey Tiger button:

It was really warm out this afternoon, so I took the dog for a nice, long walk. On a little side street around the corner from my house, I passed this:

A hand-sewn, gingham checked, ripped heart in the gutter. “Simplify.”
It’s now the desktop background on my computer. If it wasn’t so soggy and dirty, I would have taken it home.

I bought some shrinky-dinks at the craft store today. I’m debating whether or not to bust them out. I have lots of ideas. But its midnight. Hmmmm…

The BF in Texas this weekend, playing his rock and roll. I miss him. The boys and I are holding down the fort though. Poochie’s already passed out from all the partying.

Yeah.

PS – Has anyone seen the commercials for the “Horton Hears a Who” menu at iHop?
Incredibly disturbing.

  1. sweet! are they little size or big size. since there are only 2 sizes of buttons in my mind. i like that simplify thing. awesome walk score even if just a picture. i have not seen that commercial. i do remember other ridiculous commercials for ihop that make no sense, i am sure i’ll see this one soon. i wonder what the review are. i heard people didn’t think it was funny. well, it’s not that funny of a story, it has meanings and values and people working together to reach a common, difficult goal. i really dr. suess.

  2. I like the buttons, they are so colorful and simple! You could sell them in little batches maybe? or give them away with sales… “free button with order!!! HurrAY”🙂But seriously, it would be cool.

  3. Nik:1. They are little. I think the official size is 1.25″.2. Thanks for clarifying. Hahahah.chick:Both great ideas! Thanks a bunch. PS – I threw a Hey Tiger button in with your cd (be careful when opening the envelope!)🙂
