Getting ready ...

Here I am again - getting ready to start another One Button a Day challenge. I must be mad! I've got a lot of ideas, so hopefully I'll manage 366!

My last challenge, in 2016, was actually great fun. It DID challenge me, and I learnt a lot. And best of all, I met so many wonderful artists all over the world who also make buttons. This year, as then, the only rule for me will be that I will make the buttons. And, just to clarify - I won't necessarily make a button a day. If I'm in the mood, and my mojo is with me, then I may make a few at the same time. That should help to cover for the days when other work makes it impossible. But, I will only post one a day.

Here's my button wall, with the first four panels empty. That's four months, give or take. I originally placed the first boards on the wall without any others, which is why the first months are at eye level.

I decided to only empty these because I don't think I could face great black spaces on my wall - I do prefer the colours of the buttons.

And, my old library card drawer set - finally, after many years, a good use for it! Until I finally decide how to store them.

I will be keeping two blogs this year - this one, daily, with each new button. I'll also post these on my other social media outlets - so do follow on Facebook or Instagram. The other blog - ginabsilkworks.blog - will be updated with all other bits and pieces, though probably not quite as often as every day!

I do hope that you'll join me!


  1. I'm hoping your button-a-day will get me creating more things.
    BTW the link to your blog does not work for me. This does work : www.ginabsilkworks.blog

    1. Hi Jo! Thanks for letting me know about the typo - all fixed :)
