The title of this post says it all…the beginnings of my blog with the writing of my first post and the beginnings of establishing my own little button jewellery business. I am a mixture of nervousness, uncertainty and above all else excitement. Of course I am aware that at the moment I am talking to myself alone but one day you will have come across this little blog and wonder where it all started. So hello to you and welcome.
For years I have spent time trying to find the ‘perfect career’ and after many difficult times, became aware that I was never likely to as I was not allowing room in my life for flexibility, creativity and living in the present whilst spending too much time trying to force myself to a certain path in life. We were both unhappy with how we were living so we sold up and became wanderers in this country before experiencing life in Tokyo for 6 months. Amongst all the adventures, plans were formed to turn my love of buttons and button jewellery made for myself into a small business that hopefully would allow me to find what I wanted in work. Now we have returned to the UK and those plans are becoming a reality…a reality this blog will follow and hopefully celebrate.
