Check out this lovely smile!
Isn't she beautiful??
This is Esther,
and she is smiling because she drew my name to receive some free
hand crafted buttons from ButtonMad.
Aren't they cute???
And they are coming to me clear from South Africa!
I really like this company and what they stand for.
I copied this directly from their website:
As the company evolved, ladies from the local community were hired and trained in the art of button making. Today, Jennifer’s entire family, as well as 45 women from the local community are involved in the business. Most of the Incomparable team had never held a paintbrush before they joined the company and are now absolute masters of their brushes and justifiably proud of their work. The ladies sense of belonging within the company and skills as crafters not only gives them tremendous pleasure but also provides them with economic empowerment and has uplifted all their families.
How cool is that?
Look for more of these buttons in my crafts very soon!
Actually, all the photos have been taken from their blog.
I emailed them for permission, but I am an impatient person.
They are probably sleeping or something right now in South Africa!
I am fairly sure they won't mind.
Go have a look RIGHT HERE
