Finally FWF!

Well, welcome, finally, to my FWF post! It has been one heck of a day. Two, really, since the desktop was misbehaving all day yesterday, too. I thought I had it all fixed and taken care of after a system restore. WRONG!!!!

I woke up to a blue screen of death. Um...what?? I can't get my shiny new photo uploaded to my blog if I can't get it onto the computer from the camera!! Holy moly, what am I gonna do?? Well, been working behind the scenes here. Deleted some new software I'd installed for one of my classes this semester. Ran scandisk, did some other safe mode stuff, "let" the spousal unit have at it for a while....ran a virus scan....watched some Clean House....tried to get back on the desktop - and it locked up. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Reboot. Make sure NOTHING opens. Cross fingers tightly and open Photoshop. Amazingly, I get the picture uploaded. And saved. Open googletalk. So far so good. Open Firefox so I can go post to the blog....system failure. Ctrl/alt/del does nothing. Wait a few to see if anything responds....still nothing. Another hard reboot. This time all I opened was an explorer window, just long enough to copy the photo file to a thumb drive.

For my card, I used Clean & Simple Stamping - Fall to Layout 104. Paper is Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety and the stamp is from Unity's matching Garden Variety kit, which is currently available in stores only. All Things Unity is still asking for us to show our style. I think this one is closer to what I usually come up with. I call it "cute and simple."For a full list of participants, check out the Unity blog. I've already seen some of the fantastic projects the peeps are showing today. And don't forget about the blinkie! It's out there somewhere!
