My biggest order yet

This week, I got a convo on etsy from a lady that works for Rowe Fine Furniture, a furniture manufacturer, asking if I would be interested in a big order. They have a new line of furniture by an international fashion designer and she wanted me to make marble magnets using pictures of the exclusive fabrics.

How cool is that?!

There are 12 new fabrics, so 12 magnets in each set. I was so excited to see that 12 magnets fit perfectly into the rectangle tin that I use for my refrigerator scrapbooks.

So, we chatted back and forth and she requested 55 sets (that's like 110 of my 6-magnet sets!). I told her I could have them finished in 2 1/2 weeks. Am I crazy? I'm not sure...

I've placed my order for more rectangle tins and neodymium magnets and I've bought enough glass marble gems to sink a boat. I think I'm ready.

I'm looking forward to the challenge and the sense of accomplishment that I know will come when I finish such a large order.

But my fingers may never be the same again...
