My New Blog Button & a Crafty Question

I've been holding off on creating/getting a blog button...waiting until I could get what I knew I really wanted.  I'm not very creative, so... I was hoping to find someone else to do it for me.

Really, I wasn't actively looking, but I was looking, if that makes sense.
When I entered a giveaway at Katherine's Corner I saw that she also had three home businesses, one of which she uses in part to create blog buttons for the uncrafty like me.  It's not that I don't like crafts, au contraire, I love them!  I'm just not good at making them myself...thankfully my Kindergartner doesn't know this yet and still really likes the things we make together (one day he'll know the truth, just as he'll learn I can't sing worth a lick either).  Ah... how I dread the day he reaches those revelations.  ;)

So...I asked Katherine if she would make me a button.  She agreed and in no time flat (really it was all such a super fast transaction), I had a blog button that I love.

Now I'm curious about the rest of you.  If you have a button, did you create your own?  Or did you have it made for you?

There are so many things to see in the blogging world, and crafts are top on the list of marvels I come across all.of.the.time!  It never ceases to amaze me what wonderful creations people come up with in the bloggy world.  I've seen some INCREDIBLE birthday cakes, some excellent Fall decorations, out of this WORLD furniture restorations, and some pretty spectacular photographs.  What are some of  the great crafts you've come across while perusing other blogs?  Or maybe something great that you've made and showcased on your own blog?  I'd love to see or hear about it (feel free to leave a link or picture, I'm totally in the mood to enjoy other people's creations today!).

Happy Monday all, and a big thank you to Katherine from Katherine's Corner!

  1. Ooooh Oooh Oooh, raising hand. I have something! At first I was like dang I DON'T have a link to a post - I'm not really all that crafty - but I am when I want to be. I do have an ugly button that I made - not displayed on my site anywhere ;-)

    1. I like the arrangements (the big one is my favorite!).

      I like the Van's site too...the little Barbie Doll couch she has up is really cool.

  3. Your blog button is very beautiful! Katherine did a great job. I created my own blog button some time ago. I just used a picture of my twin and me. I hope I remember how to make one if I plan to do so again!:) I have really seen so many awesome craft items on blogs. Personally I can crochet and do a bit of cross-stitch. I also like trying recipes, making cards etc. Have a great week.

    1. Me too! She gave me three options, and all were lovely, feminine buttons. If you're in the market, she's got style. :)

    1. Thanks, Artist, and good luck if you decide to make one. I'm sure it's fun if you know what you're doing or have an inclination for being creative. :)

  6. I made my own button... just playing around though, I would love to spruce it up a bit. Glad you were able to get one. I have been to Katherine's blog several times and never noticed that she did that! :)

    1. I know, Gina, I'd been there many times too and didn't know she did it. I was so glad she included links in the giveaway to her home businesses (because I had to go poking around and take a look at them) or I still might not have known about them. :)

  12. I love your button! I had a friend do mine because after I read the instructions 47 times, I was still confused :)

  13. I love your button! I have made some of my own, and then I use designers as well. Right now I have Christina from Spilled Milkshake Designs as my business partner, so I'm a bit lucky to have her whip things up for me. She just did all of my Facebook tabs, which is a really cool and new thing.
