Frustrated

I was typing a post to share with you my younger daughter's Hello Kitty themed birthday party this past weekend.  My operating system decided that would be a good time to "reconfigure" and restart...no warning, just a blanked-out screen.

Once the computer finally came back on again, Blogger kept telling me that an error occurred during saving, but I persisted in finishing the post.  When I went to preview it before posting, Blogger navigated to a "page not found" page, at which time my entire post was deleted.

So, you know what?  I'm done.  Tomorrow, I am going on a "media-free" church retreat, and I am just going to get started a day early.  When I get back next week, I will try again with the birthday post.  And I will also share an envelope-making tutorial with you, and news of my progress in Joanne Sharpe's Letter Love class.

Until then, happy creating!  And I hope you have better luck with your technology than I have been having with mine.

I am still looking for another person to participate with me, April, and Laurie in the Pay It Forward project.  If you are interested, please read the post here and leave me a comment.  Thanks!!

Andria, I wish I could participate in the Pay It Forward project, but any other time would be better. I'm just a bit.. overwhelmed right now. However... it's a great idea!

I'm so sorry about the Blogger fiasco. It's happened to me! It's not in the least pleasant or even a learning experience. It's just yuck.

Have a great time at your retreat. I look forward to the party news and photos. It's always fun to see what the girls have been doing!

Andria, I know this isn't the right place to tell you that my beautiful post card arrived safely and I love it! I tried to e-mail you but it came back so can you e-mail me with your address please? I hope you are enjoying the post card swap and receiving lots of lovely little works of art. From Joan Flynn in Australia
