All this blathering of not feeling any inspiration, blah blah blahhhhhhhherggggggggh--
Let's go back to the beginning.
A couple weeks ago, I started a new Instagram account for my Etsy shop since my personal Instagram had turned into daily babies, socks, and Saab 900's with lots of shots of what I was working on creating, jewelry wise. Since 2008, I've been selling handmade jewelry on Etsy along with buttons (& other craft supplies) and vintage clothing (and wares). I decided I wanted to separate out all the Etsy stuff so I could turn it into more of a marketing platform to drive more customers to my shop. (Being honest here, it's a smart marketing move.)
Within a couple days, I was inspired to join in on #buttonaday, posting literally a button a day. Not only did I want to join in on that fun, but I also wanted to photograph buttons better than I have been for my shop, and showcase details on them, which is something I've had an interest in ever since I started selling them. Some of the buttons I post are for sale, some aren't.
I don't know where that project is going to go, but I'm definitely having a blast with it.
