Button, Button, who's got the Button?
Have you noticed this new addition to my sidebar?
Yeah, my graphic designing husband made it for me.
I'd asked him to make me a button so that I could use it for advertising (should I ever decide to branch out into that). He said he would, and then, less than a week later, he did.
It used to say "Charlotte's Etsy Shop", but I wanted it to have the name of the store in the title, rather than my name.
I also originally wanted to have the star be a ball of yarn with a crochet hook sticking out of it, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought that would probably look stupid, and the more I liked the star there.
Eric thought up the idea for the retro-ish feel as he was lying in bed, trying to go to sleep.
He got thinking about crocheting, and how it reminded him of the 70s.
I hate hate hate 70s decor. Avacado Green and Sunset Orange? No thank you.
So, I'm not exactly thrilled that Eric thinks of my hobby and the primary provider of our daughter's college fund in that light.
All the same, I do like the button.
In fact, I think it's pretty groovy.
(If you want a button for your blog or whatever, just paste this mysterious code into your HTML/java script. Just don't ask me what it means. Enrique tried to explain it to me, but it was a little too complicated, and I was a little too sleepy.)
