I am rarely bored. In fact, feeling bored is the worst thing I can feel. It makes me anxious- feeling like I should be doing something, but I’m not, and that is wrong. So when I find myself with nothing to do, I end up finding something to keep me busy- like knitting, crochet, embroidery, cross stitch… I think you get the idea.
The other day I found myself with unexpected time on my hands, and starting to feel that feel, I dipped in to the backyard and found a stick. Some time, effort, and no anxiousness later I had a handful of buttons.
I used a coping saw, my dremel, and coated them lightly in linseed oil. I have no idea what kind of wood it is- I just had stick in hand and started cutting. With 3 kids who are currently walking to and from school, having Not From My Back Yard sticks in large supply in my backyard is very likely.
Backyard Buttons y’all- I made them.
