There’s some good and bad news. The goods news is that I got my proof copy of the Acorn and Button book yesterday! The bad news is that there will have to be minor corrections made. Once that is done, it will take the printer 2 weeks to reprint the book. After approval, Acorn and Button should be available to the public between the middle and end of November. That is the hope! Thank you for being a part of this journey! We’re Getting there!
One day, Button was minding his own business when a question of serious magnitude broke through his consciousness. Where are all the miscellaneous buttons that have fallen off sweaters or popped off shirts? Where do they go? Do they end up lost, discarded, lonely?
Button knew he had to do something. He started a non-profit, Save the Button campaign. It was a means by which buttons could find purpose again through art. Flyers went out to buttons of all colors, shapes and sizes. “ Buttons! You are not alone! Come unite together and become a meaningful part of the art community!”
Buttons started showing up by the hundreds. They applied themselves to murals, mosaics and geometric shapes. Creativity flourished and buttons made names for themselves in the world of culture.
At the end of the campaign, Button was deemed a great philanthropist! (Which, of course, was only his due).
