Did you miss me? hehe. I missed you guy, and your blogs! My computer is finally fixed, why does it take so long? They determined it was not worth fixing, I blew out my hard drive and main board somehow. I have no idea what happened. It worked at night, went to bed, broken in the morning. So after they looked at it for a couple days I got a new one. Then had to spend DAYS setting it up. Re-installing hardware and software, restoring my files. Luckily I learned a few computer crashes ago to BACKUP! I use Carbonite to automatically back my stuff up. It took a few days but sooooo worth it! I also decided to get a new router and that took a week to get here, then I needed a wireless converter which also took time…blah blah… In the end I am back in business! I have 588 unread blogs in my Google Reader HA! Sorry, but I don’t think I will make it through all of those LOL!
So it’s officially summer vacation for my kiddo’s. We have been going to parks and getting out as much as we can before the real heat of July kicks in. In one of my last entries, I mentioned I would share the end of the year teacher gifts with you. Well, I managed to forget to take pictures! Oooops! However, I can share with you the gifts I bought. I got this one from Etsy seller CambriRae. I very much enjoyed my shopping experience with her. She even customized the type on the page clip! The teachers loved the gift!
I also made some of the teachers fabric key fobs. I didn’t take any pictures but I’m sure to make some more, it was a fast and easy gift!
Next up, I need to post about the Blissful ATC swap for May. The theme was “Let’s go to the movies” and my partner was Tina. She is a bigtime movie buff. Her ATC was a timely tribute to Elizabeth Taylor. What a great way to honor her, with art! This is more than an ATC, it has pieces! I love it so much.
Inside the card is this lovely fold out folio with tributes to a sampling of Liz’s movie career, along with some movie tickets. This is so original and a great addition to my collection! Tina was also very generous with her gifties! She sent me some movie snacks (which I gobbled up at the garage sale I was having the day they arrived hehe) and this gorgeous potholder! It’s a bag of popcorn! Again, so original! It’s still hanging in my studio, I’m not ready to use it :)
Well, that’s enough catching up for now. I promise to be back soon!
