    Simply LOVED the tiny totes made with fabric scraps & buttons – two of my favorite things in life!! Since I never met a polka dot I didn’t like, I like the green container best – thank you! Faith.

    my favorite from the hop is the mixed media heart pendent. I would like to win the blue. thanks!

    My favorite project is Eileen Hull’s Button Pencil Can. Easy enough for me to make, and easy to coordinate with whatever room you’re going to use it in! Thanks for the inspiration! And thanks for the chance to win the filled viewtainer ~ I’d opt for the blue/green one!!

    Love this blog hop. So many wonderful creative uses for buttons and ribbon. My favorite is the button earring holder from Megpie Designs. I would like the green viewtainer.

    Love the 100 Directions Wedding Cards….so pretty! :)

  8. Kristy March 9, 2013 at 7:00 PM #

    Oh….:) And I forgot to add, I like both containers, but the blue just a tad more. ;) Thanks for the fun!

    I absolutely loved Allie’s button sculptures and Jen’s wedding favors. Both very fun ideas that I had never thought of doing.

  10. Dianne March 9, 2013 at 9:00 PM #

    I love buttons! My favorite project was the mixed media heart pendant by Mel Designs. I’d be happy with either container, but if I must pick one I’ll go with the yellow one.

  11. DanielleMW March 9, 2013 at 9:31 PM #

    I really enjoyed looking at all of the creative projects on each site of this blog hop. I liked the tiny little mixed media tote bags on http://www.mel-designs.typepad.com/, and the button centered flower thank you cards on madelinesthoughts.blogspot.com, but I loved the elegant cards and tags shown on suescreativeworkshop.com! If I should be lucky enough to win the viewfinder package, I would choose the yellow one. Thank you for the ideas!!

    I had so much fun hopping and meeting such creative ladies! My favorite project was the one with the ribbon and buttons rosettes! Lovely, lovely, cards and tag!

    If I won I’ll take the yellow container. Thanks for the chance!

    Love the mixed media heart!

  14. Trudy Sjolander March 10, 2013 at 4:03 PM #

    Great projects by all! Of course my favorite is the sculpture by Allie Gower! I always love her work! :)

  15. Barb Wagar March 10, 2013 at 4:40 PM #

    I visited the designers there and I really like the Swirly Birds stamps and the Buttons used on the Wedding Card. Both so beautiful and cute! I can see so many uses for both!

  16. Barb Wagar March 10, 2013 at 4:45 PM #

    I forgot to add that if I win I’d like the green container. Thanks so much.

    love the topiary any button prise

  18. Beverly Jordan March 11, 2013 at 12:28 PM #

    Loved all the projects and especially Jen’s wedding dress card because of the adorable flower buttons! Loved Eileen Hull’s pencil can with the pretty flower too.
    As for which Viewtaniner, I really can’t tell, and would love either one! Thank you!

  19. Donna Jones March 11, 2013 at 2:40 PM #

    Loved so many of the projects, Terry’s charm bracelet (for my daughter), Debras Easter cottage, Candice’s hat and headbands I truly can’t pick a fave :-) and should I be a lucky winner I truly wouldn’t mind which one I received both look fantastic :-)

  20. trisha too March 11, 2013 at 3:03 PM #

    Very fun–the coordinating items are perfect for crafting. Found you at Einat’s blog, and am happy to join the hop!


  21. trisha too March 11, 2013 at 3:28 PM #

    Okay, I now think we’re supposed to tell our favorite project? Well that’s pretty tough, as they are all so fabulous, but ONE of my favorites is Becky Conley’s embellished bag–a simple but effective way to use some of those fabulous buttons!


  22. trisha too March 11, 2013 at 3:30 PM #

    Well it’s me again. There is slightly different info on the blogs, so we’re also supposed to tell which button/ribbon set we’d like? Oh please, they’re both wonderful–surprise me, please?!?


  23. Ellen Lai March 11, 2013 at 10:19 PM #

    I love hearts. A great idea for the mixed media heart pendant. I’ll try that!

    Both the green and the yellow are my favourite colours, but if I have to pick one, l choose the yellow one!

  24. Deb (Two Cheeky Monkeys) March 12, 2013 at 3:53 AM #

    Loooove the Buttons Galore and More Mixed Media Heart Pendant by Mel Designs!

  25. Deb (Two Cheeky Monkeys) March 12, 2013 at 3:53 AM #

    Oh, forgot to say that I’d be happy to win either container but I may like the green one a bit more. :)

  26. chark March 12, 2013 at 2:33 PM #

  27. chark March 12, 2013 at 2:34 PM #

    forgot to add–love the green ended container, and love Melony’s project!

  28. Pat Miodonski March 12, 2013 at 4:03 PM #

    I love buttons on many of my projects. Buttons, can dress up a flower, a gift wrapping, a quilt. They have so many uses and never grow old. And loved by all no matter what your age. My Grandchildren, have always played with my button box for many hours. It helped them learn, colors, numbers, shapes, and so much more. Exploring with buttons can be used in school projects, community projects, etc. I will never tire of using buttons. Pat M.

    I liked Eileen’s Button Pencil Can. Cool texture and fun buttons!
    I’d love to win the green Viewtainer!

  30. Denise Bryant March 13, 2013 at 11:21 AM #

    I love Eileen’s Button Pencil Can. Great texture from the twine, and love the row of buttons around the top!
    The green Viewtainer is my favorite.
    I posted a comment yesterday but I’m not seeing it so I’ll try again!

  31. Von March 13, 2013 at 6:27 PM #

    Oh my gosh — adore those button bracelets! Too clever and too fun! What a great idea for a young teens project at a sleep-over or even for a girl’s guide/scouts activity!

  32. Paula March 15, 2013 at 4:57 PM #

    I absolutely love all the projects but my favorite has to be Allie’s wedding sculpture. It is so creative and so different than anything you usually see for a wedding. I love it. And I would like to win the green viewtainer.
