New Computer and a Fresh Start

Wow!  What a wild week it has been for us.  A few years ago we purchased a new iMac computer and I absolutely loved it.  We didn't have a minutes problem until my "cyber" world, however, came (literally) crashing down around me when I received my usual software updates and the computer would not start up again properly since.  After several calls to Apple Care and finally having to take it in for repair, to our dismay we were sadly informed that the motherboard was totally fried and there was nothing they could do except replace the part for a cost that was equal to buying a whole new computer.  So we dumped Apple completely and are now back with PC again.

I have a bit to catch up with here since I haven't been able to post anything since last Friday.  Our shipable items in our ArtFire Studio and Etsy shop are still on hold until the postal strike is settled.  Right now mail is going through as the strike is rotating but things could change over the next week.  Our tutorials are still available and we are able to send them now that we are back on track with a new computer.

For now I will share with you a few shawl pins that I have made over the last few months.  Several of these have already sold in our Etsy shop so we are busy making more as well as some new designs that I am not quite ready to reveal to you yet but will very soon.

Yes it is frustrating and now I'm having to learn the new PC all over again and so everything is taking so much longer than before.

A new tutorial coming? Perhaps. I had been thinking about it for some time now and will give it some more thought if I feel there is enough interest.
