lowercase official

It took a moment or two, I’m usually all in, straight off, but for this I wanted more, I wanted just the right things to make them perfect.

I’ve been button obsessed for as long as I can remember, collecting them, trading them, pinning them to jackets, jeans, hats, bags & packs. As a kid I didn’t have any money, so most of my collection was promotional freebies, with the occasional Snoopy or Ziggy thrown in. I remember getting a library one from the Bookmobile (our small town mobile library), oh, and anyone else remember the BOOK IT Pizza Hut reading program ..I think I was mostly in it for the free badge and mini pizzas!

Fast forward 20 years and that pin love was still there, so I treated myself to a button maker, it was confusing and fumbly and inconsistent and while I had fun making my own custom pinbacks, I couldn’t produce a consistent quality badge. I loved the ones that turned out, but was frustrated at the waste to get one good. Fast forward another 15 years and here we are, my cute ideas officially on paper, an upgraded button maker, USA made parts and pieces, lovingly hand pressed one by one in my little studio.

I made it for me, because I love that question .. I made it for you, because maybe you do too ♡

I say “lowercase official” because I don’t plan on being a big O – Official button factory, I’m keeping it simple and handmade and mostly buttons for stitchers and makers and buttery cracker lovers.

Life is a jumble, a little bit of everything, a little bit of nothing, quiet peace with bursts of chaos, hurt that slowly softens, profound and stupid and terrible and wonderful all at once.

Taking it all in, giving everything its moment, because we are all different, but the same, we are all nothing more than a jumbled collection of lots and lots of little bits, profound, and stupid, and terrible and wonderful all at once.
