Greetings blog like chums, new and old, some very old and some very new. Also some decidedly spammy like, you can sod right off.
Hey what is all this about buttons? Well I am rather obsessed with Pinterest (don't follow me on there unless you actually want to be bombarded with TONS of things, but if that does appeal, feel free to follow away crpitt on Pinterest). There are lots and lots of fun projects to found on there and a particular button one caught my eye (found here). So off I ran (to ebay), ordered many a button and created my own versions. I have a few more in the pipeline, so will do a buttontastic update in the near future. I am hoping to start adopting peoples old unwanted button collections too.....
Buttons also evoke memories of days gone by, when I was just a wee doodler, eating crayons and dribbling (last week?), so others might also remember the random world of Button Moon...
I am always after ideas and ways of expanding my business 'The Doodologist' and this is just the type of thing that appeals to me, full of fun and colour! Although I do worry that constantly adding new ideas to the business, leaves people wondering 'What does she actually do?'. At the moment the answer to that question is ... Lots! I am trying to find a happy balance between the doodle commissions (which I love) and a steady stream of quirky crafty projects. So I hope that people will continue to like what I am doing and continue to offer invaluable advice and support! I absolutely love that my friends (online and offline), family and likerers often send me new ideas to play with, so please keep doing that.
A is for Apple: Personalised Apple ornaments for teachers
B is for Bride: A wedding doodle commission
C is for Carrot (there is one there!): A birthday doodle commission
D is for Daddy : A 50th Birthday Doodle Commission
E is for Engineering: A Congratulations Doodle
F is for Fantastic: A Birthday Doodle for a very cool lad.
Ta da! I hope you enjoyed having a peek at my latest commissions, you can follow the links to see more pictures and/or hop over to the book of faces and follow my almost daily wafflings there The Doodologist and on twitter The Doodologist.
What is next? I have some lovely doodle commissions to crack on with, then some lovely button like projects, plus my prize winners prizes AND some secret projects! The secret projects are very cool and I am really hoping that I have time to develop them before this Christmas.
Other news.... Oh I would be remiss to not mention that I am sodding off to America for six weeks, but more on that soon!
