Handmade Profile: Zelas

I haven't updated in several days. I've been working on a lot of projects, but I haven't made any interesting progress that I wanted to share just yet. I should have a bit to share soon though, because I am very close to being done with the socks and my dresser just needs to be sealed and have new hardware put on.

In the meantime, I thought I'd feature one of my more recent Etsy shop finds, Zela's.

Click on any of the images to go to that item listing on Etsy.

Zela's is mainly a button shop. I don't know why, but I really like buttons. I don't like carrying things with buttons all over them or wearing buttons, but for some reason I like them anyway. According to the listings, each button is hand-stamped and the images are original drawings. I love the style of the drawings.

Most of the characters are from animes (such as Naruto, Full Metal Alchemist and Bleach) or video games (like Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts). Now, I don't consider myself an anime fan or a video game nerd, but my fiance recently got me into Naruto and I've been known to casually play Final Fantasy from time to time (the only one I've ever played all the way through was Final Fantasy X).

This is the one I got for me!

So, about a month and a half ago when I stumbled across this shop, I knew I had to pick up a button for my fiance and for me.
