Store Closing Aug. 22
The Kanji Buttons store will be closing at the end of the day Wednesday, August 22. The reason for closing is that I am leaving soon for college/university and will not be bringing my button-making supplies with me. The blog will remain open, although updates may stop when school gets busy. The store should re-open near the end of December this year.
Thanks to everyone who’s enjoyed the blog so far!
EDIT 8/23/12: The store has been closed.

Night Buttons Preview
I’ve been a bit slow to finish my set of 3 night-themed buttons, so I thought I might share some sketching/writing I did (in Sharpie and crayon). The three purple kanji in the middle are the ones I’ll be using for the Night Buttons set.
夜 yoru / night (already done here)
星 hoshi / star
闇 yami / darkness
Night Button Photo
1” pinback buttons made from this design. The ink turned out a little darker than I expected, so the clouds are barely visible. But, I think they’re still a nice subtle effect.
Anyway, if you’d like to purchase one of these buttons, you can do so through a custom set order at my Storenvy store.
EDIT: Here’s the side-by-side picture of the design & the buttons.
夜 yoru / night
I’ve already made these into buttons, but I guess I’ll post the photos tomorrow.
(As always, the buttons pictured are 1” pinback buttons, about the size of a US quarter.)
