These days our lives are hectic and no matter whether you’ve got a whole brood to look after or it’s just one or two of you, having an area where you can keep reminders and shopping list items as they come to mind is essential.
It’s never been so stylish to be fabulously organised! Negin Elliott makes gorgeous fabric notice boards and each comes with a criss-cross ribbon design so that you can pop everything including notes, favourite recipes, shopping lists, important reminders and precious photos in a prime spot.
If you’re after a home accessory that’ll help you keep track of those handy bits and bobs, important documents & children’s treasured art work, then these beautiful fabric notice boards are the most unique and stylish of options.
Today we talk to Negin Elliott of Buttonhome about adding a splash of colour with her stylish fabric notice boards which will add a touch of personality to any home.
Did you always want to be an artist? How did you get started?
I have always had a love for fabric but never found my niche until I made my first notice board for my daughter when she was going to university. i wanted to give her something special that I had made but also something useful but pretty. i found that I really enjoyed making it and that is how it all started.
Who or what inspires you as an artist?
My inspiration is pretty fabrics.
What projects are you currently working on?
I am always looking for something fun and new to do with fabric and i have recently discovered the joy of making fabric covered buttons which I then make into magnets.
Do you have a favourite piece or one that you are most proud of?
I love all the fabrics I use but I particularly love Liberty fabrics as they are so soft and lovely to work with.
Where can we buy your work?
I sell my handmade fabric notice boards and fabric button magnets at craft fairs, etsy, ebay and from my Buttonhome facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/Buttonhome/
I will also be exhibiting at both Love Your Home in Dublin on 12th & 13th May at Citywest and at Love Your Home in Belfast on 12, 13th & 14th October 2018 at Titanic Exhibition Centre.
