I finally had to give in and format my computer.  I HATE doing this because I am guaranteed to lose stuff no matter how hard I try not to.

All my pictures… all 200 odd gigs of them are burned onto DVD.  Double checked and fine.  I got all my favorites etc. etc. also and then went through my Adobe Photoshop and saved all my stuff from there onto my Desktop before formatting.  Yes.  My Desktop.  They never made it onto DVD.  Gaaaah!  So, the next week or so I’m going to be trawling various sites downloading fonts and actions etc. etc.   It’s not the end of the world, it’s just a monumental pain.

However, on the plus side my computer is all clean and sparkling new again!  It’s fast and nippy like a smart car compared to the slow, trudging tank it had become.

I’ve only had the computer 8 months, so I’m going to try and be nicer to it this time around and keep it clean and zippy!


I went to Michaels to get a Picture Frame for my 30 x 30 picture below, and they wanted, with the 60% discount they are currently offering, $160 minimum. What?! How much? For four pieces of wood and some glass?

So, I made one myself for $60! Hah!

Here you go. I’m very proud of myself! I had some assistance from my husband with regards to cutting and holding corners together (very much a two person job), but I did so much of it myself!

Oh, excuse the picture quality, it was taken at night with no flash so I didn’t get a glare on the picture. Purely for reference only!
