Becky Michaud's Profile

About

When I was little, my mother had a big jar of old buttons that I loved to play with. There was always a button that fit into whatever game I was imagining. As I got older and stopped playing, the jar became just a jar of buttons, and I forgot about them. After getting a sewing machine my mother sent me a box of fabric scraps, and in that box was my prized jar of buttons! So my obsession with buttons began anew. I think most old buttons have a similar story. Someone decided each button was special enough to snip off whatever clothing it lived on and save it. And there it sat in a jar or drawer collecting dust until I find it and give it new life. All my buttons, whether mass produced or hand carved, are beautiful to me, and I hope you can find beauty in them too when you buy one of my creations.

So hello! My name is Becky. I am a biologist.
