A New Beginning / Meet me

This is my new venture in life. I've thought long and hard, yearning to "open" my own blog. I've planned and plotted, but always waiting for when I would have more time to get started. And today became the day. Why? Well not because it's summer 9yet) which is when I originally planned to start, but simply because I had a good day.

I feel accomplished today. In 24 hours, I made an awesome t-shirt with a technique new to me (which will probably become my inspiration for my first tutorial) , a new purse for a gift and a wedding dress out of toilet paper at a wedding shower (yeah it was awesome if I do say so myself). And so today became the day. The day that The Sweet Button made it's blog-ly debut.

So I hope you'll come along for this new ride, I promise to try to make it fun!

A little more about me- I love to sew, it's something I really and truly understand. Specifically, I really enjoy costume design as it allows my creativity to flow and my sewing machine buzz. Additionally I love anything with paper, fabric, glue, paint etc etc. I am definitely the person my friends turn to when they need new ideas. My newest obsession has been baking, and I think I've bought more powdered sugar in the past 4 months then in my entire life. I love love love to watch T.V. when I sew or craft. A few of my favorites are; Grey's Anatomy, Project Runway, and almost anything on Food Network or TLC, so come discuss with me (especially when Project Runway season rolls back around). In addition to all the craftiness I also love history, especially learning about people, and their cultures (and clothes!). If I could live during anytime period it would be the 1940's or the late 1800's. I really don't know what else to say, but if you have any burning questions, feel free to ask!

I just opened a twitter : - so come follow me there!

I have one etsy shop at the moment: - It's on the empty side right now because I'm working on a lot of other projects right now.

Thanks for stopping by, more posts to come soon!
