blogging, etc. - social media buttons

I came across the blog Her New Leaf today, which has a bunch of cool design tips for bloggers under the header Primp My Blog.

I was particularly excited to find some freebie social media network buttons for download with a design that I LOVE. I have been looking for a while for some cute buttons to replace the standard ones I had on the right side of anna knits, etc., but I hadn't been able to find anything quite right. These buttons are simple but cute and I am so happy with how it turned out.

Old vs. New Buttons

The new buttons shown above come in sets of ten for different social media outlets. They are available in a variety of colors, including clementine, butter, ocean, cobalt, and glacier (shown above). You can also purchase other Primp My Blog designed buttons on Etsy here. I really like the gold glitter buttons.  
I also really like these hand painted watercolor social media buttons from The Ink Nest on Etsy. They are so whimsical. 

Primp My Blog even has a great post explaining step-by-step how to add social media buttons to your sidebar here.

I was thinking about designing my own social media icons, but I really couldn't have done it better myself -- thank you, Kira at Her New Leaf!
