I'm in the Doghouse!

My dog treat boutique just received a large wholesale order! Yippee! A wonderful store placed an order for literally several hundred items. We have never had an order this large since we started in November. I'm so excited but freaking out at the same time - thank goodness I have a business partner. I'm in a very busy two week period at my "day" job and now I'll be coming home and cranking out some dog treats. Hopefully my husband will take over dinner duties for the next several nights, either that or Cheerios are sounding really good! If I'm spotty in my posts and visits over the next week or so, I apologize, I've got a full plate for a bit. It's funny because I'm so crazed right now but as soon as the next few weeks end I go into this slow period at work that lasts for about a month or so. It is so dead during that time, the day drags and I can't help but think that I'm wasting precious hours that I'll never get back. Maybe I can sneak in some art projects while at work!

I am SO happy for you! When it rains it pours...this kindof good stuff would never happen during a slow period! lol

Gosh, these look so good, I might like some!

Those look so good, I'd be tempted to eat them, instead of Cheerios!

congrats on the big sale!

I mailed the charm you won, but truthfully, it is a different charm, I simply cannot find the one I posted!!!!! It could take years to find it, who knows what I did with it. But, since I sent you another, that means I am guarenteed to find this one immediately, that is how it works. As soon as you give up searching, the lost item turns up.

Well done Karla!!!!! That's great news! Funny how when it rains it pours!
Those dog treats look wonderful! If only quarantine would allow them to be sent into Australia.... I hate our quarantine rules!!!!
Oh you know, I thought of you yesterday, when you told me about who Bob Woodruff was, because yesterday we finally got (2 months later) the episode of Oprah and he was on it with Lee. Amazing story....
Take care and well done!!!
