Hubby’s Bday Surprise

Today is my hubby’s birthday- the real reason for the season. Saint Patrick, shmatrick. He is old news. My hub can grow a mustache that would make Pat turn in his grave. (Whatever that means?)

Main point is, today is his thirtieth birthday, so I wanted to do something special. With buttons, of course 😉 He is a big Legend of Zelda fan (we named our 4th born child ‘Link’) so I thought this project would be perfect. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, and until it was complete it seriously went through some ugly stages (I’ll post a tutorial when I figure out my new photo-editing program.)

Introducing button-mosaic Link:

Hubby was surprised and happy! Success! Speaking of hubby, thirty is a big milestone, and even though he has only been thirty for a matter of hours, there are already some big changes! Here is a pic of him when he was a young one, merely 29 years of age:

I do love a creep in a stache.

And here is a photo of him from this morning:


(Thanks, Cris for the pic.)

And I will end with a portrait my daughter did:

Well, that’s incriminating!

Happy mosaic-making, birthdaying, and incriminating.

    That’s so cute! I like that it’s off-centre. And I like the heart. Good job!

    Bahaha, before I scrowled down I was going to say it looks like your daughter drew him as a zombie! Looks like she has some mad skills!

    I dont know if you still use this blog, but I came across this via Pinterest. I love this Link button mosaic. Do you ever post a tutorial for it? I want to make this. I think I could do it without a tutorial, but if you had one it would be awesome sauce. Thanks so much 👍🏻
