Work Clothes I don’t generally have a specific set of work clothes but I absolutely don’t work in PJ’s 😉 haha. Honestly one thing I do is make sure I’m motivated and ready for the day in normal day to day clothing. No special Button T-shirts but hopefully coming soon 😍👩🏻‍💻 I don’t have a photo of my super jazzy work clothes so here is my outdoor office instead.  Read More →

Photography I actually use my phone for most of my photos. It’s just as good as my camera and it means I can quickly and easily transfer them. I’ve recently got myself some paper samples for the local DIY shop and installed a daylight bulb so I don’t have to rely on the amazing British weather!!  Read More →

Post / Mail I like to pack my parcels up so they look pretty when my customers receive them 🙂 They are then bubble wrapped and packed in boxes. Using Perspex frames rather than glass means they safely travel through the post! xxxRead More →

Where I’m based in beautiful Cheshire and this is a photo of one of my favourite views! I can see this hill from my studio window and always want to pop out for a walk 💖  Read More →

How it’s made ⠀ I start by creating all my designs, phrases, personalised messages on the computer using adobe illustrator. Once finished I print and arrange the buttons until I’m happy. Finally I stick them down and frame the piece 🌸😀⠀  Read More →

Tools - Buttons and Bobbins Personalised Button Pictures

Tools⠀ ⠀ I don’t use that many tools in my craft, mostly it’s glue, buttons and a printer. I do also use a die cutting machine every now and again which I need to make more use of. It works like magic 💖⠀Read More →

Workspace - Buttons and Bobbins

Workspace So today I’m sharing my workspace with you! I work mostly from home in my craft / spare room. I split my time between my desk, where I do all my listings, order processing etc and my jazzy green button creation (foldable camping) table 💖 It’s not always super tidy, I believe that’s creative licence right? 🤷🏻‍♀️ but there is nearly always a cat near my computer trying to ‘help’ me list my products 😻  Read More →
