I made these kaleidoscopes from freely available images of buttons. I use a variety of programs to make my kaleidoscopes, colour the backgrounds and assemble them into a collage. All of which takes around 2 hours.

It gives me immense pleasure making them, and I hope it gives you pleasure solving them. :-)

Thanks SO much, Cindy! I'm really happy to hear that you enjoyed it so much. And thanks for telling me your faves. I look forward to posting them as singles, dedicated to you. :)))

Beautiful!!! Beautiful!!! My favorites are bottom left and upper right.

Ardy --- I guess I missed the info, but it sounds like you really took a tumble!!! I'm so sorry! Hope you'll soon be feeling like yourself again. Prayers for you!

Beautiful all of them

It's a wonderful thing about the comments, isn't it Edie? You can keep up with all the comings and goings!

Agreed Mandy. Buttons really ARE beautiful! And very hard to resist, so I can understand why you buy them just because they are so lovely. Although I have to say that it sounds like you have a certifiable addiction there!! LOL But I love your button stories. Thanks for sharing them. And I'm glad that this puzzle generated such wonderful reminiscences. :)))

Glad I didn't wait too long to come by for a second serving. Been thinking about Ardy and now I know how she's doing. It's like news and fun rolled into one. Thanks Kirsten

I love buttons - always have and always will!! There are so many to choose from and sometimes I find myself buying them for no other reason that that they are lovely!! I have a big box of them - for those rare times when I replace one that has been lost and it was the first word I ever said, according to my Mum... Bupty!! I made a toy for my children where I sewed a dozen different size and shaped buttons onto a strip of cloth and put button holes along another piece, so they learned to do buttons up at an early age!!

I can't argue with that! LOL

Kirsten, my friend, I wouldn't say that you are camera-shy. I'd call it more camera phobic!!! LOL I still keep wishing.

Oh, yes. Your days are getting shorter. Meanwhile, on this side of the world, there's a tinge of light in the sky at 6 am when I get up. And the day light is lasting 'til about 6:3 pm. So our days are starting to get longer. Yay. I love long days!

Wall art, eh? That's quite the compliment!! And I thought about you as I made the bottom left! So glad to hear that you enjoyed it. :)))

It's so dark at 6 am so I have a feeling that I may well be onto a new schedule. It was the sun coming in the window that finally woke me at 7.
I love your button puzzles. You can see the buttons quite clearly in each puzzle yet the kaleidos themselves look like gorgeous button artwork. I can imagine having one of these framed and hanging on the wall. Fave today ... better take the 2 blues and the green. Thanks, Kirsten. :-)

I was just leaving you a "whew" message at your place, Barb! LOL And glad to hear it was just a sleep-in. In fact quite happy to hear it. And bit of extra sleep is a good thing. :)))

Can't believe I slept in and it's after 7 here. Haven't done the puzzle yet. Kirsten, but wanted to let you know I'm okay. I can see it's a lovely one - will do it now. :-)

You'll have to make like a rock star, Ardy, and wear dark glasses inside!! LOL And are you sure you want pictures taken? I don't think I would! But then I am notoriously camera-shy. See you soon!! :)))

This is so lovely, Kirsten. I'm enjoying it so much. Thank you. I'm doing all right. I'm still a little shaky and more bruises are developing under my eyes. I am going to go out to Cousin Linda's for lunch. I'll have her take some pictures. It's my skinned knees that hurt. The nose would too if anything bumped it!!! I think I'll head on to the main course before I stop. See you again in a few minutes.
