Free Buttons Today

I will be downtown giving away free buttons to “snowflakes” before the GOP candidate for the 2020 Presidential Election arrives here in Youngstown for a political rally today. Yes, he is campaigning already… the man is still stuck in campaign mode, doesn’t know how to BE presidential, or maybe he just needs his ego stroked by 20,000 adoring fans cheering him on as he spews more lies.

Sorry, Trump supporters… everyone is entitled to their own opinion and this is mine.

Thanks for reading!


Butterfly Festival

Southside Community Garden is having their 5th annual Butterfly Festival from 1 to 4 on Saturday Afternoon… directions and more details can be found on their Facebook page. Admission is free, so if you live in or near Youngstown, Ohio, this could be something fun to do with the kids.

YBWorks is honored to make the  souvenir buttons to commemorate the festival. All proceeds from the buttons go to the garden, so your purchase/donation will help raise much needed funds.

Thanks for reading!

Note: if you click on the button photo, it will take you to the event’s Facebook page.

FYI: Cloudy Vision

I shall not be doing any new designs for a bit… I had a wee stroke just before Thanksgiving that affected the vision in my right eye. Right now, it is like trying to see through frost on a windshield at sunrise on a wintry day, only the frost is gray instead of white. Some areas have that fine crystallized pattern thing going on and I can see between the frost. Other areas are blotchy, like pale gray clouds that I cannot see through at all. Hopefully, it will clear up on it’s own… I have an appointment with an eye specialist, so maybe there is something they can do about it. Anyways, I’m letting you know because it is hard to look at my computer monitor. I can deal with small screens, like on my cell phone, but it might be awhile before I’m able to do things like remove backgrounds for photo buttons with graphic design software.

In the meanwhile, I can still play with pencils… who can say no when a four year old asks, “can we draw pictures?”


Just playing… doodle drawing pictures… this one is mine.

Thanks for reading!

UPDATE:  I spoke too soon… oh to have frost again! A black night sky, speckled with tiny dots of light that resemble far away stars, replaced the frost on Saturday. I so hope it clears again and/or that eye specialist can fix it.
