Welcome to Christchurch

It's competition time.  Once again I was inspired by the view outside my window... and on my walks... and whenever I drive anywhere...  It's pretty hard not to see a road cone in Christchurch at the moment, unless you have your eyes closed!

So, for all the road cone lovers out there, you can win a set of eight road cone buttons.  Details below.

If you're not a winner, you can still buy these buttons or any of my dozens of other designs.  Check out all current designs on the Ready Right Now page.

How to enter.

Entries close on the 30th April at 8pm (New Zealand time).  I will notify winners shortly after that.
Simply email me on fuzzimama@hotmail.com with the first name of the entrant and the city or town that they live in.  If you would like to enter for more than one person (for example for two children or several grandchildren), please email me individually with each name, and then it's easier for me to use random number generator to draw the winners.

There will two sets of 8 road cone buttons to be won.  The first will be especially for entrants living in Christchurch - because they have to deal with more road cones than you can possibly imagine if you don't live here!  The second is for everyone else.

Puk Party time

Yesterday I saw a Puk Party!  17 gorgeous pukekos on the side of the road finding tasty things to eat in the grass.  Pop a puk party on your next garment.

Or perhaps some blue choo choos for your little train lover.

To order and for current designs please visit my Ready Right Now page.

I went to Paris and I saw...

I went to Paris and I saw...

... pretty things...

...and bicycles, lots of bicycles. 

Tour Eiffel and the Mona Lisa.  Christmas markets, tubs of lollipops as tall as a five year old and more sparkly lights than you can possibly imagine. 

It was wonderful. 

Happy New Year!  Buttons for sale are over in the Ready Right Now section.

Seasons Greetings

Seasons Greetings,

Wishing you a season filled with fun festivities, fancy fare and hopefully a spot of crafting to nurture and calm you during this busy time.  I have stirred the dye pot and have my festive season projects all ready to go.

I am taking a break now until early January, when Buttons by Benji will reopen with new designs and plenty of the old favourites.

Joyeuses fĂȘtes,
