Button UP!

STOP PRESS! My poem Button is up on YouTube!

There are two versions. One is with me reading and the other is with fellow-writer-storyteller Vincent Eaton reading. I wrote the poem (more about it here), but the concept and execution of the video is all Vincent.

I am very excited. Please enjoy... and let us know what you think!


  1. Well done, Jeannette, and Vincent!


    PS I seem to recognise some of those buttons!

  2. Fabulous! So neat around the image and beautifully made, the poem and the video and the reading.

  3. Thanks Martin and Paul! Yes, Martin, at least some of those buttons are from your mother's collection, I am planning a future post about that.

    Paul, re the imaging, Vincent scanned each button individually and cropped, photoshopped, etc before deciding (1) which ones to use in the final and (2) in what order to put them. It was his concept, I can't take any credit for that part.

  4. Wow J - on youtube! I have to say....I like your reading of the poem.

    Keep going - on to bigger and better things! More youtube!!!
