About Me

My photo
I currently live in Birmingham and come from Solihull. I have a love of all things crafty, developed from my mom's love of crafts as I was growing up. I currently work in marketing, but I'm a qualified Aromatherapist, and use to be self employed alongside a day job, might one day return to that. I try to fit in crafts when I can, I wish I had more time and money to spend on it! I enjoy researching my family history and finding out about the past. It can get frustrating, but is really rewarding when you have a break through! I hope to meet people with similar interests as me and swap advice/stories.

Vintage Buttons

I have a small stash of buttons, including some vintage buttons and I'm just gettinag around to using them. There are so many ways you can craft with them, I had a bit of brainwave moment and now its getting down to making my ideas reality, I'm itching to get to an antiques fair at the end of the month and get some more buttons!

My most recent button make is here:


I also have got ideas for button storage which should combine some of my other crafts.

I'm also busy with a Spring Craft Swap with British Sellers on Etsy and if I get time (although it may be next month now) there's the monthly challenge on Creative Connections...if we get snowed in for a few days I might actually get time to do all this!!

If you want to buy buttons online, I found a couple of sellers here might well use myself:
