About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Happy Birthday Buttons

OK, last post for today, at least for now. This project will be entered into the contest at Little Scrap Pieces is buttons and bows. So, here is what I have come up with:
Just a plain white card stock base, bakers twine, miscellaneous buttons, a sentiment printed from the computer and shapes cut from Cricut Craft Room Basics . I actually really like the way it turned out.



  1. Great card Miranda. Love how you turned the buttons into balloons. Thanks for joining us at LSP.
