Happy New Year!

Minions buttons by Gina Barrett Here we are at the end of another year. Thank you so much for all of your support over the past year. Hopefully next year will be wonderful for each and every one of you.

Starting tomorrow, I'll be taking part in 'One Button a Day'. This great idea was started last year by Helene Weinold, who posted a picture every day of 2015 of a button she had made. (If you missed it, follow this link to her Facebook gallery). So, in 2016, it will be my turn.

I'm not setting myself any rules, except that I must make the button. I know as well as anyone that real life can get in the way, so I will not be making a button every day - some days I will probably make a few. This is especially true when I know that I'll be busy with shows or workshops. And, to be fair, sometimes making one button leads to another - I wouldn't want to have to wait when the inspiration strikes!

I will post the images - one a day - on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and of course here. There will be a new article category - One Button a Day 2016 where additional information about each button will be given, such as the size, materials, name (if any) source (if any) - that sort of thing. So, if you've seen the image on social media and want to know more, then do please stop by here! There will also be an image gallery over on my portfolio website.

Look out for the social media tags - #onebuttonaday and #onebuttonaday2016 and the short link to the section here -

And so, to get you in the mood and hopefully make you smile, here's a set of Minion buttons that I made for a Christmas gift this year...


I hope that you will all be able to join me in my Button a Day journey!
