Well hello there! Looks like you found my blog, well done. My name is Emily Myer Hawkes and here are little snippets of my life I thought you might enjoy.

I am currently living in San Diego and have been here since August 2004. It was a strange adjustment for me, moving to this new city. I grew up in the Santa Cruz mountains and boy San Diego is different! It took me awhile to explore this huge area and make it my own.

I have recently picked up a new side project. I found that in the midst of getting settled in San Diego these past few years, something was missing. I had been discovering my true self, starting my career, and building community but all the while I had been lacking a little something extra. Then it came. A single creative concept that I shared with my mother turned into a snowballing creative outlet. I started making my own stationery and Pink Button Creations was born! Ever since this spark was ignited I have been enjoying a world of creativity; taking raw materials to make something unique.

I know there are a million places to buy stationery, but there is something unique about Pink Button Creations. Every card is hand crafted and sewn. Yes, sewn. I absolutely love my sewing machine and use it to add a homemade touch to all of my cards. I also have a growing affinity for buttons. Don’t you just love buttons? So cute and yet so functional. I find a way to integrate buttons into just about all of my pieces, which, in my opinion adds the perfect touch. I am also exploring other areas of crafting, so stay tuned for updates!

So how about this blog? You can expect to find Pink Button Creation updates along with other snippets from my life. To me, life is something to be experienced fully and shared. Sharing is caring, right? I am glad you are board and sharing this life with me. Do you have anything that you’d like me to write about? Anything you’d like to share? Just let me know, I’d be happy to share together.

Thank you so much for joining me. I truly value you and hope to see you around here often!
