Out of sight, out of mind...

Well, as you know (from my last post) our home computer crashed. It appears that our virus software either wasn't enough or wasn't at all. Anywho, our computer is back but I cannot find ANY of my pictures. NONE! I thought they were here, I was sure Shawn said he'd saved them but they are nowhere to be found. I'm so very sad, to say the least. Those pics covered the last four years of our life. Cody and Shelby's birth, everyone's birthdays, Christmases, etc. That's apparently what I get for not backing anything up. Well, I can say that was one costly lesson learned. I still have hopes of them "turning up" in some unexpected folder on the computer but honestly, it's unlikely.

The good news is that I do have a computer now. I still have to reinstall my Microsoft Office software so that I can open my documents (that somehow managed to survive?) and so that I can continue to use my Word etc. And, I will have to reinstall my Photoshop...which was from my father-in-law so I will have to contact him to come and do it! LOL! But, I can blog again! YEAH!

So, here's a card that I created for my upcoming class on Tuesday, Sept. 23 at The Scrappin' Pad.

The class is designed to show how simple it is to add stitching to your projects without a sewing machine. Attendees will also complete a one page 12x12 layout.

And in other news, DH and I are trying to buy another house. If all goes well then we will close on the 30th of September. We are keeping our fingers crossed that the continued fallout in the housing market doesn't have any negative effects on our transaction. IF it goes through and we move, then DH has agreed that I can turn our current home into a Scrap House! That's right ladies, an entire house just for scrappin'! Does it get any better than that?

Well, I will close for now. Thanks for hanging in there with me and I'll be back soon with more projects. Katie
