YEP! That's me!! PC was in the hospital for a week getting over a virus. I pick it up Thursday, as they assured me all my pictures and music files had been saved and restored to a clean PC. I get it home all excited as a kid on Christmas morn only to find out that there are 2 YEARS of pictures missing and a couple of very important document files. So back it went Friday and they said "no problem, we'll fix it". Got it back home last night and yep they added the files, and 2 sets of pictures from 2011. Still no 2012 pictures and about 200 pictures from 2011 are still missing, so Monday I am going back and talking to them AGAIN, no sending DH this time, they are going to have to face a very irate Grandmother, and avid Scrapbooker! I do know that sometimes a virus can damage picture files, but 2 YEARS worth. I want them to SHOW me just what they saved. GRRRRRRR!!!!!!
So not having a PC to play with and keep in touch with, I was left a lot of time on my hands. I was stunned at how much time I do spend on the PC. I print all my pictures, try to keep up on all the blogs I follow, interact with my yahoo groups, my blog activities and the list gos on and on; I'm sure this shoe fits most of us. (It is really HARD to do any of this on a smart phone, and so slow) I was really upset and had a hard time focusing on holiday spirit and making Christmas cards, that I really needed to get started. So sitting in front of the TV I grabbed my art journal and started to doddle, and the Christmas Spirit hit me and this is the page I created. I drew it out with a black felt pen and then used my Inktense pencils to color it in. After coloring I used a wet paint brush and went over it, bleeding the colors here and there.
I did get an other journal page almost finished and a second Christmas card, but I'll save those for a later post, your probably ready to move on after all my rumbling and grumbling......LOL
It feels good to back in the blog loop, I really missed not getting to play in WOYWW. Hopefully I'll get to play a wee bit before we head to the desert for Thanksgiving......... MMMMMM I can already smell the turkey......
