New buttons at the store are so expensive, and so blah -- your collections always have exciting ones in there!" Dianaspassion said, "You have the greatest buttons... I love shopping your store." They're the sweetest ladies.

I have a Golden Retriever named Merle, who sometimes “helps” me write copy by putting his chin on the keyboard (obviously I’m not typing quick enough).

I am also on Etsy under the user name QuiltedLovelies and TheQuiltLabelLady.
