A Little Birdie Told Me Returned/Complete Button Fairy Swap

Hi ladies,
My name is Trish, and I hoard vintage buttons. I think it might be a healthy , mental exercise to send some buttons to live somewhere else. So let's make button fairies. Here's one I made already.



For inspirationbutton fairy - Google Search

I found this tutorial. Be warned, if boobs are offensive to you, the mermaid button fairy has a bare breast. MAGGIES WORLD: BUTTON FAIRY TUTORIAL

Lots of free lady heads *The Graphics Fairy LLC*

Sign ups will be until November 15th. Send your fairy to the person above you on the list, postmarked by December 15th , with delivery confirmation. US swappers only.

There is no theme for this swap. Make your fairy from about 3-5 inches wide, and your tail proportional to that. The largest of the buttons in my pic are about the size of a quarter. Any beautiful buttons will do, not just vintage. Extras are the best. When you sign up, PM the person above you for their address.

I have my grandma's button jar! I have never made a button fairy, but would love to join.
And a question with your signature, do you have chickens? I have standard cochins, which are my absolute favorite!!

"Extras," are little presents in addition to the swap. For instance, I sent out matching stickers, as part of my altered clothespins swap. Just fun doodads or whatever, that make the package even more wonderful. It's NEVER required, but definately encouraged.

I have about 40, and will be selling Easter Egger and Faverolles point of lay pullets this Spring, and 6 roosters are going for Thanksgiving.

I will be breeding Blue Wheaten Marans, making Olive Eggers, and working on my COCHIN BANTAMS, which are my true love. I have show quality splash, working on blue mottled!

I have an empty coop, and am fighting so hard to not go for bantam Faverolles or D'uccles next spring. I sold my incubators, but I am still addicted to cuteness.

Thanks for joining my swap!

Now I want to hear about your flock.

I have 20. Blue, white, buff, partridge, black and silverlaced standard Cochins. I love gathering eggs and turning them loose in the yard and watching them. I have what my husband calls my "chicken watchin' chair". I find them very relaxing, and Cochins are very gentle and quite tame. Which I'm sure you already know. LOL

I guess I thought Jan was your name. That's better than Norman, right?

The top half of my fairy is beautiful, but I have to add a tail. This is the first time I have had to myself to work on anything fun, since Monday. Aaahhh

Just checking in. I have not sent mine because I forgot about PTA stuff
As of last week, I am PTA Treasurer, Bingo Chairperson and Dance Chairperson. Apparently in all the years of Bingo, no Chairperson has been able to run the event, and play Bingo. Bingo is the only event I really wanted to attend, besides the cake walk at Carnival. Wish me luck, I have until February to work it all out.
