Lots o' Cards

It's Christmas in August around here (as well as May, June and July a lot of the time). It still feels weird to be making Christmas cards in the Spring and Summer, but that's when most stores order for the holidays. This week it's back to making a ton of button ornament cards for an Anthropologie order I'm working on. I'm so glad they've ordered, but these particular cards are soooo time consuming--printing the cards, gluing each button, cutting and gluing each hook then packaging them up. I need 1,800 buttons--whew, that's a lot of buttons. I already raided my mom's huge stash of buttons for colorful, nickel sized buttons and I've bought a bunch off ebay. But now I'm headed back to ebay again to search for more buttons.
