Kaleidos made from ...... Buttons!! ~ Small

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. :-)

Ah, that there would be Edie's apricot and almond pie, Deborah! LOL And I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)))


As you know, I love my red, but this time I have to go with the yellow and orange one in the center. It makes me think of a fruit pie...good enough to eat! Thanks Kirsten! :)))


Thanks Katie! And I have to confess to having a soft spot for that emerald top left too. There's something about that particular shade of green, and the translucence of it. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. :)))

And I'm pleased to hear about the cooling off of your weather. What a relief!! And I completely agree. I say the same thing ALL the time. It's so much easier to get warm, than it is to get cool! Great minds..............


I would be proud to be called Professor too, Edie! I'm glad you're not mortally insulted. :)))


A bright, cheery collection to go with a nice, bright Saturday morning! My faves are middle, middle right and top left. Glorious group overall. Thanks Kirsten! :>)

We've had a major shift of weather - Tuesday it was 95 with a heat index at 103 and this morning started out around 45. I'm liking the cooler temps - it's so much easier to get comfortable by putting on warm clothes!


I'm sure I've been dubbed a lot worse than that Kirsten, and what's wrong with being a Professor :-)))


It's a pleasure, cookie! I'm very happy you enjoyed it, and thanks for letting me know. :)))


Thanks for doing my puzzles, Clive! I do appreciate that. And it's not quite Sunday here yet. I'm in Melbourne, Australia and it's 10:10 pm as I type. So time for me to trundle off to bed, as I have to be up at sparrows tomorrow for my Sunday job. I guess I officially hand over Saturday to your care. Hope you have fun with it! :)))


Great puzzle. Thank you.


Hi Kirsten, I do a lot of your excellent puzzles but do not always comment.
It must be Sunday morning where you are hope we are not keeping you up.


They do make for fun faces, Edie! I love how they kaleido as well. It had been way too long since I'd posted some button kaleidos. So today was the day! And I have to tell you. I was telling Duncan about your chicken chronicles today, and he has dubbed you Professor Chook! LOL Hope you don't mind. But I thought it was pretty funny. :DDD


Love the buttons. They make for a lot of little faces peering back at you. Centre looks like a yummy tart, maybe apricot and almond flavour. Balmy 2 here, so I have my thermals on. So many favourites but I'll stick with the centre, just in case I get hungry. Thanks Kirsten for sure I'll have to come back for a second helping :-))))


Look at you, at the top of the heap! That must be some coffee, you're drinking Barb! LOL And I'm so pleased you enjoyed this one. :)))


I think I'm awake now that I have my coffee and I tackled the 81 piece ... this one went together so well. And I think I'll stick to the 3 faves from the larger version. Thanks for a really lovely puzzle, Kirsten. :-)


Well hello, Ardy! How is the patient today? I didn't expect to see you. Well, I kind of hoped that you might be here. But when you weren't here right on posting time, I thought you might still be resting and recuperating. Which you probably should be!!

I suspected you might like this one. I made some fresh kaleidos today, but didn't have enough time to make lots more. So I'll have to go back and make some more another day. And I love the stories! See you on the next size. Where hopefully we'll see Barb too. 'Cos I haven't seen her yet, which is a bit unusual. Hope she's OK.


Thanks Clive!! (I hope you don't mind if I use your name. I've seen you over at Edie's. And I'm Kirsten by the way) I'm really pleased that you enjoyed it. And thanks for letting me know! :)))


Four faves Sandi! Now THAT'S outstanding. LOL I can't wait to post them as singles for you. Although at the rate I'm getting through them, it could be seven months from now! I hope you're a patient woman. LOL Thanks for letting me know that you enjoyed it. I really appreciate it. :)))


Good evening, Kirsten. I love your button puzzles. One of the first of your puzzles that I remember was your button box. I loved it then and I love these now. My favorites are middle left with the cute blondes around the outer edge hiding behind pink hearts, the whole top row and the bottom left.
Cute babies in the middle right with dimples in their cheeks when you look at the top and turn into being noses when viewed from the bottom. Delightful colors. Thank you. The appetizer is wonderful. I'm heading over for the salad course.


Excellent puzzle.


Thanks for the beautiful puzzle this morning. The colors are outstanding. Of course my favorite is the top right followed closely by the top left and bottom left and center.


And equally lovely that you would solve it and let me know you enjoyed it! Thanks so much Pat!! And I hope you're keeping well. :)))


What a nice way to start the morning .... To turn on jigidi and have this puzzle be the first you see...Thanks Kirsten....
