    I am speechless! Wow! That’s the most amazing thing that I’ve ever seen you make on here. Love it! I’m going to share it on my page. Just beautiful!

    Wow. I really enjoyed seeing the time lapse video. I am not the least bit artistic, so it was amazing watching the process of your art. Thanks.

    WOW!!!! That is just awesome! And I can imagine how your back feels!! But it turned out sooo worth it! It makes me want to do one of my girls in their tutus and hang it in their room!

    That is amazing! I only learned of this artist last summer with my son at a children’s library program. Sad, I know. I was very art deprived as a child. ūüėČ

    I love how Boo pops in and out of the video.

    Wow!!!! Brooke watched this with me (she’s 7) and she said ” That is Crazy, Awesome!!! Wow, I’m speechless as well. You are so Talented!!! Wish I had the patience to do that, I would get a migraine half through it!! Love it! :)

    Where did you find all the buttons? They are SO expensive that I only have a small jar to use for my sewing projects. I sure wish I had a big bucket of buttons so I could make something like that. TOO cool.

    I love it, and it’s exactly the wacky kind of art that Frida would have loved. Her home in Mexico City is filled with brightly colored art pieces and lots of self-portraits. Your piece would fit right in. The video was a fantastic idea and captures how labor intensive it was. Way to go.

    Beautiful and amazing! My 4 year old daughter insisted on us watching it 5 times so she could point out all the skulls at the end. Thanks for sharing it with us!

  9. says

    Thanks for sharing the process. I would also like to know where you got all of those buttons, my whole family is somewhat button obsessed, so I would love to find out your secret button source ūüėČ

    I really enjoyed the video and the music. Frida is a favorite of mine also. I’d love to see some stills of the button art as well, I hope you’ll post some. Magnificent!

    How did you collect or find so many buttons? Did you purchase them somewhere specific?

    Wonderful job, you’ve inspired me to think out side of sewing for a change. :)

  16. Jennifer says

    Um…speechless! Just saw this and the Lisa one. WOWza. Love that your daughter helped and just how great they both came out. You’ve inspired me to maybe try something similar. Definitely something the kids could help with. Love, love, love it! :)

  17. says

    Wow. That’s cool. It would be adorable to make family portraits this way.
    And, how on earth do you have so many buttons? Heh, I only see bags of maybe 10 or 20 at the craft store. 10 x 20 times… 2000… wowza.

    watching the mona lisa button video the other day brought me here today to watch the frida kahlo button video…. i didn’t know anything about her (born and raised in the midwest that’s my sorry ass excuse) so i went searching online… what a colorful life she had…. left scarred physically by the accident and emotionally by her husband…. died at the young age of 47 and left us these beautiful paintings… i also noticed the date that u posted this video… before cancer correct?…. how different life is for u now…. not that u didn’t enjoy life and live it fully prior to ur diagnosis… but rather, i just can’t imagine one would come through an experince like that and not be changed in some way… not sure where i’m going with this…. other than, thanks for helping me to ‘choose joy’ and cherish eveyday…. cuz u never know what tomorrow will bring ‚̧
