Button Necklace

Here's some pics of a necklace i made the other evening. Still buzzing from work, i decided to 'wind down' with a glass of wine and my design bug nagging in my ear...and this is what i came up with -a vintage button necklace! I'm really pleased with the outcome and even more pleased that those buttons that i had laying around came in usefull! (The images are pretty naff so i'll put new ones on when i get round to taking new photos)

Happy Birthday Dad!

One of the hardest things i find to design are cards for men. It's my dad's birthday this Wednesday and to be honest i've left it so late 'cause i just find it so bloomin' hard to think of anything 'manly'!
I went down several thought processes before thinking of the image from the 'memphis belle'. My dad's a huge fan of flying so i hope it's down his street (or 'flight path' so to speak). One of the easiest cards i'll probably ever put together, but effective i think... and sorta 'manly'(?)
We've got him tickets to go to the Goodwood Revival in September, that should bring a smile to his 53 year old birthday face...Happy Birthday dad!
