This 1″ button was created from an ongoing series of hand-lettering pieces made with guidelines I orient my life around, or Samisms, for short.
“Creation Over Consumption”
Making stuff is way cool. Now and again, we all get caught up in the capitalist drive to consume, whether it’s entertainment, food, shopping, or other vices, which often leaves us feeling sad and lacking.
This is a reminder to take stock of where you are investing your time and prioritize letting your creative soul sing over watching someone else do it. You have a gift to share with the world; you just have to make the choice to pursue your happiness by prioritizing that gift over whatever object you think you might want.
All pin-back buttons are hand-pressed by me personally on a button maker machine and fitted with a spring pin.
