Giveaway Day - Button Candy

Na semana passada comecei a fazer experiências com botões, com cores, com a máquina fotográfica. Esta semana abri uma loja no Etsy
O processo de selecção dos botões a vender não foi nada pacifico. Ando a coleccionar botões há bastante tempo e adoro encontrar perdidos, entre outras velharias, autênticos tesouros de outros tempos. Por isso, volta e meia dava por mim a pensar "este não, este eu gosto demais" ou "este é mesmo especial, este não posso, não consigo". Eu adoro botões e para mim eles têm realmente um encanto especial. As texturas, as cores, os formatos e os materiais de que são feitos deixam-me rendida...

E, nada melhor para celebrar a "abertura" da minha loja, do que participar no Giveaway Day da Sew Mama Sew com três conjuntos de botões para oferecer! "Concurso" aberto até ao final do dia 12 de Dezembro, o vencedor será anunciado dia 14, para concorrer basta deixar um comentário neste post a dizer em que projecto usariam os botões e a vossa cor favorita. Simples...
Giveaway aberto internacionalmente, o vencedor será escolhido usando um random number generator (na falta de melhor tradução: um gerador de números aleatórios)
Quem ganhar vai receber um pack de botões da sua cor preferida dentro do género dos botões que estão representados nas fotos.

Last week I started to experiment with buttons, with colors, with the camera. This week I opened a shop on Etsy.
The selection process of the buttons to sell was not a peaceful one. I've been collecting buttons for a long time and I love finding lost, among other oldies, authentic treasures of other time. That's why time and again I found myself thinking "this one no, I like this one too much" or "this one is really special, this one I can not".  I love buttons and to me they really have a special charm. The textures, colors, shapes and materials that are made from let me rendered...

And nothing better to celebrate the "opening" of my store, than to participate in the Giveaway Day of Sew Mama Sew with three sets of buttons to offer!
The Giveaway is open until the end of december 12th and the winner will be announced the 14th, to run for it just leave a comment in this post saying in which project would you use the buttons and your favorite color. Simple ...
Giveaway open internationally and will be picked using a random number generator.
Whoever wins will receive a pack of buttons of their favorite color within the genera of buttons that are shown in the pictures.

  2. Gosto muuuuuiiiito de botões! Têm para mim um valor afectivo... Em criança era capaz de passar horas a brincar com os botões da minha avó... a agrupá-los por tipos, ou tamanhos, ou cores... a guardá-los no armarinho de madeira cheio de gavetinhas... (e agora estou com a lágrima nos olhos e isso é que não...) Bem, botões nunca são demais :) por isso gostava muito de ganhar alguns! Thank you for the giveaway! I would use them on a cute project for kids that I have on my table. My favorite color is... (that is a though question!... :) ) red, pink and blue. You pick one. :)

  21. Back in the day, these would have gone on the tag just like they are and then into my scrapbook as an embellishment! However, since I don't scrapbook anymore, I make all kinds of things for my little grand daughters and buttons are always in there somewhere! I"d go with purple!
