buttons on the brain

it's been mighty crazy. I guess I didn't expect the buttons to be so popular, but they were and I didn't make nearly enough. I received several emails requesting different combinations...a few I already thought of and others were delightful combos that I hadn't even considered. I'm also making a few more mini's with a twist. I will be updating the store on Monday, August 3rd and it will include new button combo's, a couple more mini's and some other cute additions I've been dreaming up.

In other news, I'm trying to decide whether or not to get a Yudu. I have a very good connection who can get it for me for half the price. Hmmm...yes, no, will I use it? Paper Source now carries it as well as the supplies, but I still have a brand new Gocco gathering dust in its almost never used before box.

Well...I will try and pop back in and do a weekend post...I still have to take a few pics of the mini journal I'm currently working on. I have to say, the great thing about the smaller scale is not feeling the need to fill things up. Allowing things to stand alone. Less fuss. Simplicity. A specific point of view. I like that. I think instead of sharing links to some of my favorite mini's as I have been known to do, I think I will share some of my own. Not the best...but beloved all the same.

That's my goal next week. I will devote what small amount of extra time I have next week to a "me" project. Not sure how that will shake out...but you'll be the first to know:) My inspiration:
this book, I've been taking surreptitious peeks at work. SSShhh, don't tell.

BTW: if you love paper + pretty packaging as much as I do you must check this out.

Please, tell me a little more about "5". Right now I am in dire need of some inspiration and I've re-read my Tolle and my Tao of Pooh and nothing is coming. Could this be the book (and inspiration) that I need...? (I'm very into serendipity in this way--last year it came in the form of a sweet little book called "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" and it landed in my lap at the perfect time.)

"5" is a great little book that is based on... where will you be five years from today? It asks a variety of thought provoking questions, and has many inspirational quotes. It's not particularly deep, but I love it, the words, the very idea of it. It even has spots for journaling. If you feel like getting a little introspective it's a nice book...and I love the bold typography + layout:)

I love, love, love Compendium books. I have a few but this one looks awesome. So much can happen in five years, it would be great to have a plan and really think about it. It's in my cart at Amazon. Thanks for the hot tip!
