It was Just a Whole Lotta Fun!!!!


I made this cute little canvas which was inspired by a good friend Sam. She made her daughter these cute canvas of a butterfly,flowers, and I think a dragonfly?? Anyway, they were just cute as and I thought, since I have something like 10,000 or more buttons sitting(I shall one day relate the story of why I have so many!!) in my cupboard that this would be a great project that could utilise my buttons and other craft items that I have held onto for situations like these, you know, when you don't want to chuck it out or give it away, you know it will come to use one day!!! Anyway I made it with about an hour to spare before the party was to begin, which I think is a record for me!!! I wanted it to look like a lollie tree, but it could be intrepeted as many different things. At the bottom is the name of my daughter's friend who had the birthday party last night. I had so much fun designing and making it I can't wait to make another! This is a low cost project that is great as a present, because its homemade with attention and love!
Most of my pictures are taken at night when I remember to do it so please excuse the poor lighting.

Thanks:) Not too bad for a first attempt! I have another on the way for my nephew's birthday, I hope he likes it! Of course it will be something more boyish, like an alien or something like that!
