I started creating craft items about 3 years ago with my sister, who has a passion for scrapbooking. We used scrapbooking supplies, embellishments and techniques to decorate tin containers, photo frames and Chinese paper lanterns.
The one embellishment that I really enjoyed using was buttons. I was amazed how many sizes, shapes and colors are available for projects.
Initially I decorated paper cones to create Christmas trees for family and friends. Everyone loved the trees so I decided to cover other shapes with the buttons. This has led me to creating my signature topiaries.
I absolutely love creating the topiaries because the designs are endless. I have fun combining the different colors and choosing beautiful embellishments to create different themes.
Recently I submitted a photo of my holiday topiaries to a button company’s website, from which I have purchased supplies. They thought my items were great and asked that I provide them with some sample items for an upcoming trade show. I was also asked to create craft items for their website on a regular basis.
