Old Craft and a New Blue Button

I am a crafting procrastinator. Big time. If there was a category at the Olympics for it, I would put off trying out for it until the last minute and definitely win that gold! Yep, I have craftwork-willpower issues :) But when I get the urge to create something, I will work on it until 3am. I am a lot like my mom in that way. She will stay up into the wee hours to clean the house, remodel something that needs to be reworked, or to decorate for the holidays. I love my mommy. 
So today that craft urge took over and I finally tackled the bench that has been sitting in my garage for the better part of the summer. You remember this guy:

Poor fellow's just been sitting in the corner, neglected and ugly. But don't cry for him Argentina, he has been sanded down and primed, and soon he will be a new, handsome man for some lucky family to take home. When I am all finished with the painting and the new cushion for the seat is made, I will post a step by step with pictures this time! I already started snapping away today. I can't wait to see the finished product. 
After I was done painting the bench, and the front of both my legs, I had a long neglected digital craft to make too.  

I made a new button today and I really, really like it! My first one was put together in about 5 minutes and it was just blah. Blah, blah, boring, blah, blah. But this one isn't boring at all. I love it. This one took a bit longer then the first and involved 2 photos, 3 photo editing applications and 1 "How to a make a blog button" search which led me to this awesome button code generator. God bless whoever made that site. Now don't be shy, and grab it!
