Stupid question actually, just take a look at this picture:
Honestly, who could NOT fall in love with those beauties? I did, when I opened the parcels that arrived last week. One of the parcels was from China, I ordered the buttons via Ebay:
The other parcel came all the way from the USA, from Shelly's Buttons and More Online Store:
These are all Jesse James "Dress it up" buttons, most of them are "Color Me" collections (different shaped buttons of the same color theme), I've ordered blue, red, plum, green, and "Tropical Escape" (that's the pink/yellow/green/orange collection in the middle). The six big flower buttons (top middle) are from the "Sew Fun" series (style 13 retro flowers).
The colors, the shapes, aren't those buttons just amazing? I'm so happy with them, so I thought you might enjoy them, too - would you like to have a few of them? I'd love to share my happiness with you, so let's just make a quick little giveaway, shall we? Here's your prize (left side):
It's a goodie bag, filled with lots of buttons. Some of them are from the new collections I've showed you above, and some of them are buttons that I already had in my box - let me surprise you :)
All you have to do is leave one comment here (and only one, please), telling me why you love buttons. Or what you would do with new ones. Just tell me something :) The one who writes the 10th comment to this post will win the bag - easy, isn't it? Of course I'll change the settings of the comments for this game, so you don't see the comments at once and won't know if you're the first, 5th or 10th person. I'll release the comments as soon as we've got a winner (that is - if I'm online at that time, maybe you have to wait until tomorrow *gg*).
Good luck to you all: be quick - but not too quick! :)
edit 10:40pm: hold your horses girls, we've already got a winner! This has probably been the quickest giveaway in the history of giveaways ever! The 10th comment was written by Annaboo about 90 minutes after I've published this post, she wrote:
"Aw, well I'll be the first then!
I love buttons because they can transform any bag, cushion, jumper, cardigan, blanket, scarf, hat (and about another bazillion things) into something individual and original.
Lovely giveaway idea!
That's cute, you thought you were the first - but indeed you're the winner! :) And you're so right about the buttons transforming anything into something individual - I'm looking forward to seeing what you're doing with the buttons I'll send you, I hope you enjoy them!!
To all the others: thanks for playing, and even if this giveaway is closed now - I still love reading your thoughts! :)
