Quit Your Day Job Button Celebration: week 3

I’ve made it to week three of my Quit Your Day Job button Celebration, and I’m almost half-way done, with 48 original hand-drawn buttons in the bag! If you’re new to this blog and wondering what in the world I’m talking about, read this post. Here’s a view of my button celebration on the road at a craft show last Saturday:


I put them on a special little table at the entrance to my booth so they would get the most foot-traffic. This worked really well—so many people were stopping and looking, and some even buying!

You can see all of the buttons so far in my special button celebration shop section.

Here are the buttons for this week:





I went a little French with the first set—what fun! Otherwise I just keep clipping along, drawing whatever sounds the most fun/silly/ridiculous/and in need of a button in its name. Mainly, if it makes me giggle, it’s in! I hope you’re all enjoying these! I will be doing some reader’s choice buttons soon, so keep up the suggestions. Again, read this post for more info.

    OOhhh, buttons! My new 1-inch button maker is being delivered tomorrow. I can not wait to use it! Your simple designs are perfect. I’d love to feature your buttons on my Everyday Etsy post tomorrow.
