Biographical Info

Black Cat Button is my guilty pleasure! For years I collected all sorts of gorgeous buttons but I was never sure what to do with them. I also had a very special button box, inherited from my lovely Nan. She had saved every button from every shirt, cardigan and coat; she never threw any away – sound familiar? Inspired by Nan’s button box, I made some button treats and gave them to friends. They were quite popular and, when I ran out of friends, I started to sell them for charity. I now sell my lovingly crafted items in my little Etsy shop, at local Craft Fairs and my Beach Hut ‘pop up ‘ shop. Buttons make us feel nostalgic. They remind us of happy times and most of us knew someone with a precious button box. Did you learn to count with buttons? Did you covet and collect them ? Do you still save them, ‘just in case’? If you would like to share your button story, tell me about your ‘Nan’ – or hear some more about mine! – then follow me @blackcatbutton on Twitter
