tech issues

Friends, I haven't deserted you! I am having major tech issues at the moment. Basically all my technical gadgets have decided to up and die on me these last couple of weeks. So while I hope to fix some of them (mainly my computer) very soon I hope you can forgive me for being quiet for a little while.

Be well everyone!

The comeback

Celebrating like you wouldn't believe right now! The computer was picked up from the shop tonight - and get this - every little thing was saved. Am I not the luckiest girl in the world right now? I think I might be.

My first point of order is, of course, to back everything up.
Then I think I might do a dance.
Then I will start working like crazy again. Because I think I have some exciting stuff to share very soon. :D

Before all of that though, I want to take the time to thank you guys for coming here to offer support and for your emails. I really appreciate you guys.

I'll see you tomorrow with some photos for P52.

Involuntary blog vacation

My friends, I am sad to say it, but there won't be much posting around here for a few weeks. The reason is that my computer died on Thursday night.

The memorial service (includin alcohol) that I had planned for last night was put on hold for a few weeks as my husband went to have it serviced yesterday. Hopefully they will be able to recover all the stuff I had on there; and let this be a lesson my friends, don't ever be as lax about backing up as I have been the last couple of months.

It will take two or three weeks before I can get the computer back, if they can fix it, so until then all creative work on my part, as far as digital goes, will be nonextistant. So if I don't post much here, at least you know why.

I promise I will come back with full force as soon as I can. And I think I will be able to bring some good news with me then.

So hang loose, people, we'll see eachother soon again!

Greeting cards and a Woopteedoo

Seeing as I can't do anything creative with my computer at the moment, and as I had some of my papers and things out after making my sister's engagement card, I thought I'd pass some time (ok, so I've been sitting at our coffee table watching telly at the same time) making a few cards. I had a lot of scraps from some really cool scrapbook papers I've used lately that were ideal for making cards. I have finished two and am also currently working on a miniature accordion fold book.

Today I ordered a new computer! I give thanks and love to my husband for being understanding and agreeing to not wait any longer. The little baby will arrive later this week, on Friday at the latest. I will be back in the express lane again (and yeah, haven't been there for over four years lol). As most of you probably understand I am utterly excited.

Engagement card + back from holiday

Hey everyone! I am back in the land in the north. We've had a wonderful time in the beautiful country of Italia. The camera has been fixed to my face the whole time and I have somewhere around 1000-1200 pictures back with me. Pretty cool. Unfortunately my computer has decided to die a slow and painful death which means that even thinking about doing any kind of editing is out of the question. So the big plans I had of scrapping an album of our trip will have to wait until I have a new computer. Hopefully we can manage that by the end of the month.

But now on to more happy things; my lovely sister and her boyfriend got engaged the day before we left for Italy. Naturally we had to celebrate so yesterday we all got together at my mum's house for a small party. I made them this card to go with the present.
(I was able to play a little with one photo before the compy decided to shut down on me)

So, great to be back, but sad that I can't get back to working, I think I will have to cruise the net for some ideas for my travel album until I can actually get cracking on it.

Thanks to everyone who has been so sweet to comment on the blog while I have been away. Love you lots! Mwah!
