I have had a delivery of 49,500 buttons on my work table since Saturday. They are new, and exciting but will be launched at the trade fair so they will have to remain hidden from view for the time being - BUT the delivery also contained new colour samples of teeny tinys, and they are all for you and me:
mmmmm teeny tinys in even more lover-ly colours!

I have so much fun making these button bags, they are part of the free kit when customers fill their loyalty card....counting out keyrings & brooch bars & polka dot buttons...

I spend quite a bit of each day standing at my packing table ... I really enjoy packing my orders up - adding my hand written thank you messages and wrapping the orders in pretty tissue might be time consuming but I couldn't do it any other way!! So it's important that I keep everything at hand to make sure that the process is as speedy and efficient as possible...
...and running low on packing bags isn't very helpful! Luckily my delivery has arrived and they are now all lined up waiting to be used

*the photos follow on from yesterdays - it snowed a lot and although I know photos of other people's snow are a bit blah I loved it - look the lower roof nearly disappeared!*
