May 2013 Playlist

So, I don’t know if anyone else does this, it may just be me. I have this thing when it comes to music, where some music is winter music, and some is summer music and things just feel off if I listen to music in the wrong season. It’s important to note that the subject matter doesn’t always matter: some Christmas music sounds really summery to me, and some music about the summer or the beach feel like winter.

It’s more about the feel of the music, I guess.
Since it’s been in the 80’s here for the last few weeks, I’ve been dipping into my summer music a bit earlier than usual. I thought I’d make this playlist to share with you what “summer music” feels like to me, and to see if anyone else has this weird music habit.

Here’s my Summer Music 2013 Playlist!

Treasury Tuesday 5.14.13: Buttons!

Happy Tuesday! This week my treasury is all about BUTTONS! I absolutely love them. I have a button collection that I love to add to, and I'm always looking for both new and old buttons. 

And don't get me wrong- you can totally find some really awesome buttons for you to use on etsy. This week, however, I'm showing off some really cool finished projects that utilize buttons. There's some jewerly, some picture frames, some hairbows- just really cutesy things with some awesomely colored buttons in them.
