Cute as a Button

Well I am taking a online e-class on blogging called Blogging Your Way, which is run by the Holly Becker creator of one of my faves Decor8. Together with the inspiring Leslie Shewring who is the author of the Colour Me Pretty column and creator of A Creative Mint.
So I thought I might do a little catch up posting while I am in the mood. First off I thought I would post up a video I made for my Mum back in March for UK Mothers Day. I am in Australia and she is still back in my home country of Scotland so the fact I forgot to send a card in time was a little problematic. So I got my thinking cap on and thought of all the options I had to create something digitally...and well after a bit of messing around with ribbons and such like I spotted a BIG bag of buttons I have had for random craft projects...and used a stop motion photography technique to create a fun little short.It was a huge success and brought a tear to her eye apparently. (A tear of joy of course.) Watch with sound if possible cause the song really has to be heard with the motion.

Hi from BYW forum. The video is gorgeous! I know how it feels to be far away from your Mum, and today is Father's Day so it was a nice little reminder :) Looking forward to the course with lots of Aussies (and Scot-Aussies!)
