I've decided to make a few gift sets for the holidays. This is my first listing in my www.buttonsbyrobin.com Etsy store http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=30533293. This comes with six different buttons (two of each design for a total of 12 buttons). I've had these really cute wooden boxes/bags that have been hanging around for quite some time. I've always had the intention of painting them but just never got around to it. I think these will make some really cute gifts for people or even for people to keep themselves. Lots of button collectors purchase my buttons so I think these would be perfect for them. Once the buttons are gone there is the cute hand painted wooden box left as a decoration. I've got a snowman box/bag painted as well and just as soon as I get the buttons to go with it made and the pictures taken I'll list that as well. This will be great for snowman collectors.

I've been using google analytics lately to see what search terms people use which land them on my Etsy store www.buttonsbyrobin.com. It's funny but one of the main search terms seems to be primitive sheep sewing buttons. I never knew there were so many people out there looking for primitive sheep buttons. Google analytics really is an interesting tool to use for those of you who sell. It's also really funny sometimes to fine the strange terms that people use that get them to your store. I think one of the strangest terms that has shown up is malabrigo charrua. I'm sure it means something to someone but I have no idea what it is and I'm wondering how on earth that search term would lead someone to my button store. Hey I'm thankful for each and every visitor but it's just one of those things that make you go "hmmmm" isn't it.

These are the latest "spooky" button additions to my Buttons By Robin Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6310781. These buttons are made with my own original graphics. I think they turned out quite cute if I do say so myself.
I'm thinking about listing just the graphics for people to use in their own creations. I'll think about it a bit and perhaps do a listing within the next few days.
Well it's time for bed and I've just finished listing these buttons and a custom order of a mixture of Halloween buttons. I have so many ideas and just not enough time in the day to get through everything. Pretty soon I will have to turn my crafting thoughts to -dare I say it "Christmas"!!!! It's coming faster than we think.
Okay, okay I'll let you have a few more days to enjoy the Halloween season and then it will be nothing but Santa's and snowmen for a while.
