Hello one and all who participated in the button swap!
I had to write and thank everyone who sent something extra for the kids. They loved everything! The texture sheets will be fantastic for many, MANY projects in the coming months. The canes are being used to create beautiful butterflies (the first group started yesterday and were thrilled with the results). The beads will come in handy for rosaries and bracelets that we are currently working on. My mind is spinning with new ideas (for the coming months) based on pieces that were sent.
I was/am totally overwhelmed by the generosity! Thank you, thank you, thank you from me and the next generation of artists.
As for the buttons....what talented people! I had the luck of getting to view all of the buttons as I gave them to the children. They were thrilled with the variety of styles and talent. One said "I didn't know we were getting buttons from professionals!" All are trying to think of ways to display their treasures.
Thanks again. Hope to meet you again in the "next" swap.
