Pins, Buttons and Beyond!

Hello everyone!

So, I’m super excited to start this! I’ve done a little bit of blogging before, but I didn’t really know what to blog about. I mean, I still don’t know very well what I’m going to do. But I know much better now what I want.

Blogging without a purpose is extremely hard. You seem to struggle through every post, and hope to find inspiration to write the ideas you jotted down. It isn’t a fun time. So I decided to leave that blog behind me, and start a-fresh!

And so I bring you Pastel Bottle Rocket! I’m trying to start up a business, and that is the dorky name I’ve chosen. It was between that and two others, and my boyfriend made the final decision. But I want to start making buttons and pins -I adore them so much!

There’s so much you can do with buttons and pins, and they say so much! They can express so much about your personality, and what you believe in. Or if you just wanna wear one of your favourite characters on your person.

I got these at the South Jersey Geek Con last year. My cousin was demonstrating yoyos there, and got my boyfriend and I in for free (hehe, sshhh, don’t tell anyone)!

I don’t remember if the table I got them from had a name, but they were cosplaying as Sans and Toriel from Undertale! It was precious!

I adore buttons so much, and I’m extremely excited to start making my own. I would have started my trial and error of them by now, if I had gotten the correct sized punch. A Badge-a-Minit 2.25 in” maker was the cheapest I could get, and I got a 2.25″ punch. Not thinking that I’d need overlap to wrap around the metal back. So I’m waiting to be able to get that, along with printer ink x..x

With no job, it’s a little hard. I have to use my mother’s pay check, which is currently our only income. Sooooo…yep, I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place x..x

Either way, I’m super stoked to get started and be able to share my pins and buttons!!

Thanks for Reading!

  1. I checked your Etsy Shop and all your designs are so cute. <3 I especially like the Taco button and bottle cap necklaces!
