Friday Favorites: Better Late Than Never

"I've had a perfectly lovely evening, but this wasn't it." - Groucho Marx

That pretty much sums up my last several days. You already know the story of the horrendously long day I had at work on Friday, but then the same thing happened on Saturday. Then I had a late flight to Boston on Sunday night (after rushing around all day trying to get packed and ready to go), and today was another 12 hour day in the lab. Ugh! Thankfully the long hours should be over after this week, and I should have some time over the weekend to play with the crafty supplies that I brought along with me.

In the meantime, here are some pretties from around blogland that have caught my eye recently...better late than never, right?
