Happy New Year and all that goes with it...

I suppose it's about time I said Happy New Year - 'Happy New Year' - otherwise it'll be too long to be appropriate. I guess I could still wish you a 'Happy Year', but I guess you would all think i'd gone daft if I started doing that in march, which if I don't make time to do this entry now, may have been the first time I would have got to wish it you. Because it is that time of year again. The time of year I take a deep breath and then start moaning and groaning for the next 6 weeks until it is all over. What? I hear you ask... It's our trade show in the middle of February. The big one where we have to get all our buttons in order, nice and neatly presented, reject old ones (don't worry, they go to a nice farm somewhere where they can play until they die a peaceful death in their sleep at a ripe old age) and bring in some funky new ones. Now, imagine, how long does it take you all to sort out your stash? Well, try multiplying that by... well - a lot. That is the job we have to do over the coming weeks. All the nice fun projects I had in mind have to be put back on the shelf for now (and I waited so long for that Amy Butler fabric to come in so I could make a quilt for our shop window and then for me...) and it's down to boring work.
My main job is sorting out what goes in the range - all the buttons come and audition before me and I pass or fail them. Kind of like X Factor, really (kind of like, as in not at all..). Then I decide what card to put them on to show them off to their best advantage. Not greeting card type card, but an A4 layout.
Anyway, the reason I decided to stop this flurry of activity was because big cat decided she was getting bored with the lack of attention, jumped up on the desk, sat on the keyboard and started taking pictures of herself with my webcam. Really. Heres the proof.
*a long while later*
no word of a lie, the pics that big cat took took so long to upload that I stopped them. I will try putting them up again when I have time, or when blogger is feeling a little quicker. In the meantime, it's good to talk, but I gotta go!
