Back In Business

I am happy to say that my computer is relatively fixed ,enough to use anyway. It still has some hiccups, but we'll work on those. 

I also have one bear almost completed.  It just needs ears attached and shading done.  Hopefully it will be listed on my website Thursday or Friday.  The second bear I'm working on has lost an arm.  I don't think I have enough mink in that color to make a new one so I am praying it will appear soon !!!   Who knows where it went.  I'm baffled.

I've been watching the live den cam of Lily and Hope and the new bear cubs HERE.  That can be addictive so I am trying to be disciplined.    I'm also taking a photography class online and need to catch up on 2 assignments.  It's busy here in the den .

A lesson about procrastination !

I  learned a hard lesson Tuesday, and have come to completely detest computers !  Unfortunately,my computer crashed and I'm sure I aged 20 years.   It looked like I had lost the last 5 years of photos, business files , my mailing list ,  emails, everything .  Yes I know , I know I should have backed everything up; some of it was .  I had great plans to do that for the past few months but procrastination got the best of me !

Somehow my awesome husband worked his magic and repaired the hard drive enough to recover my files.  I quickly learned  how to use that external drive I got as a gift in October ! The computer started but we've had to revert to the old way of transferring data by typing out DOS commands.  Nothing will copy or paste, I can receive but not send emails, programs are all messed up......the poor computer is old and confused.  Just like me lol.  I think we have saved the important stuff.  If you are awaiting an email from me, I will get to it eventually-sorry.

We are hoping to start from scratch and wipe out the hard drive and start over.  If that fails and it is too damaged I guess I'll have to get a new computer.  That wasn't on our list of things to buy this year. For now I'll use this borrowed laptop.

I have a another funeral I want to attend tomorrow then I really hope the year settles down so I can focus on bearmaking .  I do have 2 cut out and stitched.  So that is a good start I guess.

I hope you are having a good week :)  Oh, and go backup your computer.....RIGHT NOW !

2011 Already !

It's hard to believe it is already the 5th of January.  I hope it has been a good year for everyone so far. 

The kids went  back to school yesterday, hubby is at work and I am excited to get back into a routine and start making bears.  I had great plans to sew all week,  but alas that has changed lol.   I  volunteered to help serve food at a funeral today , and have  another funeral I hope to attend tomorrow.  Not a great way for these families to start the new year :(

I am hoping this year will be a good year health wise for me and my family.  I am still waiting for surgery which was supposed to be in Dec. or Jan, but has been delayed until May at least.  I'll worry about that when the times comes :)  

I'll can't wait to see what my first bear of 2011 will look like.  Stay tuned for it's debut ... maybe next week.
