What a Day! (I won!! I won!!)

Holy cow! What a day!

When I checked my email etc this morning on my computer..something wasn't right with my computer...
By was dead....or about 80% dead...allowing me to only access a few things

Gary spent most of the day trying to revive it... but after an entire day of's become apparent that I need a new computer...(hopefully tomorrow evening at this time I'll be back..with a brand spankin' new computer that will cooperate and do everything it's suppose to do...and then some! (I'll be looking for one that does laundry...and cooks..and makes beds!)

I was pleasantly surprised when I sat down at my barely alive.. and somewhat fickle computer... and found that I have some Internet access...(SOME being the operative word...because I can access some things...but not others)...

So what did I do??..Well..first I checked some emails and tried to respond to as many as I could...

Then...I fed my creative hunger..and started browsing some of my favorite blogs...

and....on one of my blog stops... I found out that I am the winner of the FANTASTIC blog candy at Jennie's Blog... "The Artistic Stamper"!

When I first saw Jennie's Blog Candy I was LOVING the seashell stamps...and started thinking of what I'd create with them..IF I was the winner...

Now..I'll have the opportunity to use them on some cards..and maybe a scrapbook layout...and some gift sets..and gift tags... and...and...and....

Thank you Jennie!

You've made a day that's been filled with computer problems and frustration...end wonderfully!

P.S..I can't copy and add a pic of the candy to this post because of my computer problems..but you can take a peek at it Jennie's blog
