Hi! I’m Adie. I’m 40 years old and full time mum. Button & Beanie (my daughter’s nickname) came about when I wanted to make something for Beanie for Christmas – I made her my version of a Tilda fox – I’ve never looked back. I have two children, a husband and a dog (black Labrador). I love ice cream, autumn leaves and the sea. I hate rudeness.Do you have any tips for managing the work/family life balance?
I doubt very much I'm succeeding here. I do try to plan my time so I can manage everyone's expectations. Note to self 'could do better' - any tips?How did you first start to sell your products?
Lots of cajoling from friends and family and an invitation to share a stall at a Christmas Fair. I started to think that I could perhaps make a business. I started a page on Facebook (I love that you can put yourself out there and not be embarrassed if you fail). I needn't have worried.What are your dreams for the future?
My 'pie in the sky' fantasy is to have a rustic coffee and cake shop in the Dales that I can paint and run workshops from - how amazingly fun would that be (not for the waistline though!)Do you have any tips for anyone just starting out and learning a craft?
Believe you can do it and be prepared to be brave, work hard and learn from your failings.You can find more of Mama Adie's gorgeous creations here.
