I dumped my box of vintage buttons onto the kitchen counter a couple of days ago so I could find the perfect ones to send to my swap partner, Kirsty. The girls have been fascinated by them ever since. They are sorting them constantly and get very excited if they find a match.
With all the trashing out and organizing going on in the sewing room, I got the great idea to put my kids to work for me.
My willing apprentices are putting them in jars, sorted by color. I’ve been wanting to do this for awhile, but they want to do it even more. The way I look at it, it’s a win-win situation: fun for them and lucky for me. Now if they would just wrap the swap package and take it to the post office….Oh well, I will do that tomorrow. I promise, Kirsty!
