Sharon Lloyd's Profile

About

I’m Sharon, also known as The Old Button. I live in South Wales with my fantastic husband, two gorgeous teenage children that love performing arts and a couple of pesky cats. I work part time in the NHS, and have a second “job” as Mum’s taxi, but my “me” time is reading, sewing and designing – I make stage costumes as well as gifts for children and the home – and writing blogs.
