Improvement needs to be achievable, but it also needs to be affordable. My quest is to locate elusive solutions that might make a few things a little easier on our pocketbook, future, and sanity. I may pause for a bit of fun, too.
Happy saving, friends!

Fabric Scrap Ideas
We ladies adore buttons.
I don't know what it is.
None of my friend's seem to have a "thing"
or hooks and eyes,
I think everyone's grandma had an old
Mine had several.
I absolutely loved them.
The shapes, textures, colors, and materials
are mesmerizing to a young girl.
I've done all kinds of things with
the nostalgic buttons that I've been blessed
to inherit from my lovely Grandma.

However, I never thought of making my own.
Until I was researching fabric thrift.
Creating, collecting, and conserving,
all in one fell swoop!
I admire anything that is this practical.
We no longer need to purchase a button-making tool,
As long as I'm on this journey, rambling through life's exhilarating highs and trudging heavily amongst it's incapacitating lows, I might as well share whatever may be gleaned from my little bits of wisdom and my many missteps. No room for judgment from this broken mama. I'm writing from my heart: raw, open, messy, but saved. And I'm still thanking God!
