There was a time I used to get some crafty inspiration while lying awake in bed. Doesn't happen much now as I'm usually out like a light (luckily).
I used to be a mad swimmer of laps so in the ultra boring minutes looking at the bottom of the pool I would think and brain storm! Alas that particular activity has faded from my life, so now it's while I'm peddling.
Everyday I ride 5km to work at Gleaners Inc. and home again too. As well as looking out for crazy drivers and rogue garbage trucks I think and dream a bit as well.
Yesterday I decided we needed some more cute studs for the shop. Mmm where could I source some? While cruising through the streets of Brunswick I realized I should just make some myself. Out of the 2 things I have tonnes of-lino and buttons!
So here are the first batch. They are approx 8mm circles with surgical steel posts. They will be available in Gleaners Inc., etsy when I get my shiz together, or if you want a pair now I'll take direct deposit or paypal. These are a limited edition folks so when they have gone there will be no more! ( note -top left and bottom left have sold).
It's hard to photograph studs. I've never made something this tiny before!
Where do you have your light bulb moments?
