A Day Late and a Dollar Short

Yes. I haven't had time to write posts, visit all of your blogs or do much cooking lately. I have been soooo busy still catching up to the post NY show stuff and scrambling after those dollars too. Above is one of my new designs that I just proofed this morning on press at the printer. It will be in stock by mid to end of next week. Then I will be busy packing some of the orders that were requested on the new pieces. Busy busy busy.

But please! Don't forget I will be out of the weeds soon so keep checking back though as I have taken some shots of a few decent things I've made and hope to post them soon.

For now, have a little salad. My version of spinach salad with bacon. And YES I do use some of the bacon fat/grease for the dressing. Hey, what can I say? I tastes GOOD like that!

I'm glad you will be out of the weeds soon. I'm sure I can speak for everyone and say that we miss you. My life has been nuts lately too. I write my last HUGE exam tomorrow so things should settle down for a bit which will be nice. I'm so exhausted from studying that I can barely stay awake. Is it possible to have your brain oozy out your ears because it is to saturated with information? I look forward to your posts.

Oh my goodness girl, you have some serious talent! THAT looks DIVINE. Hope things settle down soon - what a whirlwind of a trip, eh?

I love spinach salad with bacon. They were made for each other!

Don't feel bad about being busy. I've been going through the same thing myself lately. We can only do what we can do. Sometimes blogging has to take a back seat to our work and family responsibilities. Our friends will understand. :)

Loving the use of bacon in that salad. A good hearty salad can be very satisfying and is great for a hot day when it is tough to cook for too long.

Emily- Hope all went well with exams. I remember that! If you think your brain is oozy now, try having kids! That's when it gets really crazy even though you don't have to remember as much technical info.

Mamageek-Thank you!. It has been a whirlwind... the whole year has. Let's hope it pays off.

Sticky- Yes, responsibilities and the kids HAVE to come first!!!

Robin- Thank you. Business is slooooowwwwly picking up. I have to do all the work on the front end.

Kate- You HAVE to try it with eggs.

Jared- I agree and it has been HOT here lately!!!
