Once I arrived at my Nana's, I rifled through her big button tin and pulled out some really great buttons. I told her to keep her eyes out for charms, ribbon, and all sorts of crafty things that I could use for future projects. It was great fun for the both of us, since she has saved those buttons for well over 50 years! We had a lovely dinner with wine and a yummy cake and talked about all sorts of things. My aunt gave her a beautiful picture of a blue heron, from the Lost Lagoon in Stanley Park. My aunt is a very talented photographer and should be selling her prints! I might get some of her prints to post on my blog for people to see until I help her start her own.
Here are some photos of the pinkeep in process, although I still need to add the ribbon and whatnot for decoration. There is an uneveness on the top part of the pinkeep that I just couldn't get to work for me. I think it has something to do with the cardboard I cut out :(
