Do bees even have knees? Have you ever asked that question and where does the saying, “the bee's knees,” even come from anyway? I'm not sure that anyone knows for sure, but I figure if I wear a button around that says just that, maybe I will eventually find the answer! I ran across this pinback button in artlife's Etsy shop and I just had to have it.
While I was in artlife's shop and doing some browsing around, I found plenty more great badges that caught my attention. A few of these were; “My night job is Ninja,” “If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you,” and, “If you can't convince them, confuse them.” These are just a few of the great pins that you will find in artlife's Etsy shop!
If you are the type of person that likes to start a conversation in the line at the supermarket, but don't really know what to say or you literally like to wear your humor on your sleeve, this shop is definitely something to check out!
Ellen, the creator behind the fabulously funky art turned pinback buttons, has always been an artist as long as she can remember and opened up her Etsy shop in 2006 in order to share her art and humor with the masses. The joy she gets from creating these mini works of art is evident in the light-hearted feeling that her buttons bring to the wearer. She loves the idea that what she does could begin a conversation that just might bloom into a friendship or even just bring a smile to the face of someone who is having a bad day!
Artlife also accepts custom orders! If you are getting married and want a unique favor for the guests, why not get some badges with your initials and the date of your nuptials on them? Are you having a fundraiser? Get some pinback buttons with an “I Support HS Band” type of message on them and sell them to raise funds for some needed equipment or a trip? If you can think of it, Ellen can create something to accommodate your requests! All of her badges also come in the form of magnets so that your fridge can be as fun as you want to make it! So if you have a sense of humor and want to share it with others, you should stop by artlife's Etsy shop for a smile and a pin!
