Regular readers know that my creative and talented daughter has an Etsy shop where she sells original designs on 1″ collectible buttons.
Pooka’s buttons can be purchased in a pin-back style ($1.25) or as a magnet ($1.75). (Oh, I almost forgot that she now offers key chains too, for $3.)
The magnets can be used to decorate any metal surface, of course, but they can ALSO can be worn in a pendant (which Pooka Creations sells.) Here’s a video I made about it a couple of years ago, that shows how it works. (I think all the designs shown in the video are still available.)
HALLOWEEN HERO BUTTONS
Just last night, Pooka listed this year’s limited edition Halloween Hero button for the 2015 season.
I have written about Halloween Heroes in the post, Twisted Ding Dong Ditch (Reverse trick-or-treating the Halloween Heroes).
At the Pooka Creations shop, My girl describes the intent behind these buttons, and why she began to make them. Here’s an excerpt:
On Halloween 2013, I went through neighborhoods looking for thirteen houses that had decorated fabulously and were handing out candy to kids. I gifted each of those houses with a special “Halloween Hero” button I had made just for the occasion, and I thanked each of them for keeping my favorite holiday alive and well. I thought others may enjoy collecting these designs for themselves, or may want to hand them out to awesome Halloween Heroes in their own neighborhoods.
OTHER SPOOKY BUTTONS
Now seems a fine time for me to share a selection of my daughter’s Halloween-appropriate wares. There’s plenty of time for you to order some as tokens for the Halloween Heros you know, or to choose some favorites, from all of her designs, to be special hand-outs on Halloween night.
Pooka Creations is known for careful craftsmanship, quick shipping, and helpful (and charming) customer service. (Check out her nearly-200 five-star reviews.)
Aside from the designs shown in the video, here are a few that I think are especially appropriate for the folks who find their way to this blog:
Then there’s the special things:
… and this REALLY special thing:
This post-apocalyptic styled necklace is the first piece she’s offered that branches away from her beloved buttons.
(… Well, the SECOND piece, really, because the first one already sold.)
