About Me

My photo
I've been an artist my whole life and have had so many exciting art related jobs, which makes me kinda of a jack of a bunch of trades. I'm also college grad with a BFA and went to the High School of Performing & Visual Arts here in Houston. Visit my shop at Etsy and I promise you'll most likely receive a Smile to take with you! I decided to mention that about 10 years ago I was on chemo for 2 years. The chemo worked, but left me with other Heath issues, such as a case of Fibro which left me with having to get disability.Sad news, since I had a great career, that I can not work anymore. With my Faith and determination, I am determined to still do my art. My art gives me inspiration and thank you God! Oh, and please follow my blog! I'd love to have yall join me in my show and tells and also would love to hear what yall have to show and tell!:)

Computer Virus Victim

Hi Yall,
Well, "The Computer Crash Virus Dragon" got to my computer! It took over my entire computer and I did not have access to it, even after trying to restore it several times. It wouldn't even let me get to my Documents or Pictures to try to save them. Thank goodness for the pics I have here on my Blog, Flickr, and Etsy. I had to take my PC into Office Depot and spent 150.00 and now I have it back. It still is working very slow, which I don't understand that part and that was my Christmas money all spent because of this %$%^^&&&**^$e#@#$#$%% VIRUS!!!!!

Breath, Calm Down, Visual a Beautiful Image......Happy Thoughts....
I found these pictures in a file that was already in my computer....hmmmm...
I wonder if the manufacturers put that file of pictures in there just for calming us "Virus Victims".
So a New Year and a whole new computer all clean, and I've got to retake pics, etc. Yall must know the drill.
:) Happy thoughts!.....

I'll be back in touch once things get back into order.
I still need to download things to my computer.
Arg.....Happy thoughts!....

By the way, if you are wanting to check out an article I've written for Indiesmiles, some of them are down now because I have to take out the music. It will all get fixed, and my many projects will get done, including taking down my Christmas decor, which is a sad part for me to do. But all in all, things could be worse and I thank God everyday for what I have.
No head down, just Happy Thoughts Yall!!!
Talk to you soon and thanks to yall that have been commenting on my posts! I'll get back to everybody again, and everything will be running smoothly!
Happy Thoughts for all of yall too!
I can't wait to have the time to check out your blogs again!!! All of you are very important to me, so if you think I'm lame for not leaving posts on your blogs, not to worry!!! I just have been way too busy, I have not left yall at all! Just having some set backs here in my little world in Houston.
BTW, Kenzie says hi!

  1. Oh I hate viruses! I just don't understand the point of the idiots who make them - wrecking others stuff just for fun - jerks! I have to say that I do recommend using an online back up service (which I just started doing) because I had a hard drive crash (not a virus, just a bad drive) and lost a lot of pictures too (I am still trying to get it fixed though). When I got this new computer I signed up for one because of that. It just backs everything up in the background which is great for me because I wouldn't remember otherwise.

    Good luck with the computer - if it is still slow that seems strange to me. Isn't that why you spent all that money - to fix it? I would be a bit careful for right now - just in case!

  2. Ooh how frustrating. I've so far, been lucky enough to avoid a virus - there's always a first time I guess! glad you are pretty much sorted though. off to check out your latest article. Take it easy!

  3. I know what you are going through, ours crashed last year after someone stuck a bug in, I actually heard them say...we're going to see, we're going to see, after that I lost everything, all photos, that I hadn't saved yet, gone. So beware! Hope you can get it going good again. Take care!


  4. I can't wait to have the time to check out your blogs again!!!

  5. Linda, so sorry to hear about the computer virus, glad to hear your up and running again though!!! Love the pictures, very pretty and uplifting during these long Winter days!! I still have to take down all of my Christmas decorations to, I hate that part.

    Happy New Year
