Computer update … feel free to skip this bit! 🙂
Well … it has been a more than frustrating week! My computer is running again … BUT … there are still lots of things to “tweak”. The events in my calendar had been bumped back 5 hours & when Gav tried to restore … I lost EVERYTHING in my calendar! I have lost all my internet bookmarks … my extra fonts have disappeared. I don’t have access to any of my past emails! I have lost all my regular task reminders. For a while I didn’t have access to the hard drive where (thankfully) all my photos had been stored (just in case!) I lost 2 1/2 weeks of Gav’s bookwork … and spent about 10 hours just re-entering all those records … and still have a pile of work on my desk … that I haven’t been able to touch in the last week! You can imagine my SAD FACE!!! 😦 😦 Being an organised kinda person … this was really testing my patience. Gav has spent hours trying to get things working again. (I can’t complain … he has been so determined & diligent – 5 nights til after midnight and then more hours on Saturday!) But … finally we are getting there! I felt so sorry for Gav … so many hours & so much frustration! I was trying really hard to be patient … so as not to put any pressure on him!
I did manage to do some stamping during my “try to distract yourself” crafting time! I got 3 challenges done … only to miss the deadlines because I couldn’t blog them! I also did a CASE of a gorgeous card … made by Maureen Merritt! (One of my blog favs!)
As much as I LURVE this new “Precious Butterflies” stamp set … I think perhaps it is not the best choice for this design. The butterflies kinda got a little “lost”. Maureen used a leaf stamp … and it was much more striking! But … even so … I kinda like this one … so I thought I would share it! You can see … more seam binding! I am so addicted to this ribbon at the moment! Love it! 🙂
Well … I really need to get going. I have so much to do after my computer crash! It will take a little while to set up my calendar again … re-find my bookmarks (yes … I can’t blog hop until I sit down and try to remember all my blog friends!!!) 😦 AND … I do have a heap of bookwork to catch up on! So … I know you will all understand if blurfing doesn’t happen for a few days yet! Take care … everyone! And … thanks for being so patient! Hugs xx
PS: Sorry the photos are a little dark! At least I didn’t lose all my photos! 🙂
