I have my laptop here that I am going through folder by folder trying to grab pics to post. I had a super, scary incident a few weeks back. My MAC (it's really old too) which is where ALL 10K+ photos of mine live. Well, I went to turn it on and..... nothin...... No power. No nuthin? Gasp...............
I freaked out and started to shake. I cannot imagine what I would do if all of my photos disappeared.
The weirdest thing happened. A friend of mine said her DH would take a look at it because he is the guru of computers and if he can't fix it no one can. I was sick to my stomach until I heard from her. He plugged it in and it turned on.
He didn't do anything to it.! It just worked! Happy dance!!!!! :-)
I learned a valuable lesson. BACK UP!
SO, on that note, I am sharing, posting and backing up to Snapfish and some cloud thing! I had all of my moms' pics on the MAC too that I cannot ever get a copy of. Whew....talk about close call, right?
This post contains various layouts and a card along with random pics I wanted to share to kind of get caught up in blog land. Lol!
|Travel 2-12x12 pages|
|A card I made for my surgeon. (sorry for the blur-took w/phone)|
|I captured this on the way home from the bus stop one morning. Seeing light or hope through the darkness and pain in my heart from missing my mom.|
|Random canvas shapes I cut and misted with Heide Swapp mist. Center is seed beads on top of stickles and wired beads glued down|
|Solar light my mom bought for me years ago. She lights my path :-) <3 br="">3>|

I'm currently working on orders now for baby books and a first birthday. My surgeon had twins so guess what that means? Yup! A set of books for him and his wife!!! I couldn't find a neutral album for both so I got a pink and a blue 12x12 album for each baby! I am going with the CAS style for these. I love newborn babies and I don't want to take away from the photos of their precious, itty, bitty feet and first smiles so this will probably come together rather quickly for me. I plan to use a lot of lace and trims though. I'll be photographing these with my good camera and not my phone, promise!
The other order I have paralleling this is a volley ball album. I decided to make one for my daughters coach and a mom asked if I could make her daughter one too. Of course! Look for these pics to come soon.
Glad we could catch up and it feels great to post after all this time. :-)
Are you working on any projects right now? Send me a comment and share. I'd love to hear about it!
