Button Flowers at Art Meetup

What fun......a bunch of friends and a bunch of flowers. To me there is something soothing about running your fingers thru "tons" of buttons and looking at all the types and colors.

We all got together today to make "button flowers". As usual I was inspired when I saw what each person created.

Maryam brought some yummy dove chocolates and a cute little valentine's dish and vintage post cards....I feel so loved :} Maryam is a Dove Chocolatier and she is working with Dove to raise money for her charity The Cancer Coping Center. She has chocolate to sell and/or she'll come to your home or organization and hold a chocolate tasting party yummy.......email her if you're interested at Mdavodifar@yahoo.com.

Matina brought cookies and her friend, Eileen from Chicago. Eileen is going home tomorrow (if the airport opens. ha) It was great to meet her and glad she was able to experience our ART MEETUP. She made some cute button flowers and thinks maybe this is something she could do with her grandkids....yeah that's a great idea.

I made some valentine cones for my friends a little candy and a little note to thank you for being a special friend.

Check out some of our great button creations.

P.S. I don't know why I didn't get a picture of Jane, it was so fun to see her beautiful face. Also, Jane is looking for some old weathered wood to use as a canvas for a creation. It should be large like over 24 inch x 24 inch. If you have something to donate to her (check your garage, your neighbors trash), let her know. Don't you want to see what she will make with it??? :}

Also, Matina wanted to let you know that the women of the Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church located at 3459 Manchester Avenue, Cardiff by the Sea on Saturday, Feb. 13th, will be selling some great greek dishes for just a $5 entry fee. Want more info, email me.

Now go get your BUTTONS and create :}
