About

Handful of Buttons

My “shop” was born when we began planning for our wedding.

We saw a button bouquet at a bridal boutique and fell madly in love with it. It was beautiful, but the artist wanted $500 for it. Ouch. We were a couple of a very tight budget and that amount of money for my bouquet would not have fit into that very tight budget.

I decided that I could figure it out and make a button bouquet myself- except I went one step further and started digging through my family’s personal button collection. We took buttons from our grandmothers, our great-grandmothers, our moms and sisters; by the time it was all said and done, I was so grateful that I had created the bouquet myself!

As I walked down the aisle, a part of these amazing women was woven into each and every “stem” of the bouquet.

From there, I just started creating pieces from whatever I could find at the house. I use buttons; I love working with wine corks. I think playing cards are the greatest treasures for creating art, and anything Scrabble related makes for great crafting!

I am an actor, a singer, a dancer, a director, a theater teacher, a mom, a wife, a daughter and a sister. I love to listen to jazz & big band music on vinyl. We are known to have a canvas in our hands at any given moment painting whatever comes to mind. A camera is almost always around our necks, and who’s life could be complete without hours of scrapbooking!!?? :)

Hippocrates said, “Ars Longa, Vita Brevis.” Life is short. Art is eternal. Welcome to my shop, ArtEternal.

I hope you will continue to check out new work I post in the future.

    I love to use found objects, especially buttons, but any and all small little treasures laying around the house and create art pieces out of them. The 7 lb. dog you see in the photo likes to lay in my lap snoozing while I create these pieces.
