happy birthday stephan!

last week was stephans birthday. i asked our son what kind of cake i should make for daddy. he said a princess cake. so, a princess-peep cake was created!

i don't know many men that would be kosher with receiving a pink cake. stephan was, and that is one of the thousands of reasons why i love him so.
i wanted a picture of him with his cake. what does he do? bite off a peep head. typical stephan.
happy birthday to my husband, best friend, and all around good dude!!!

return from my 'internet interlude'...

i think my computer drama prompted me to take a break from the internet. from blogging, blog-surfing - all of it. it was nice, i must say.
in that time i have worked on my studio a bit. my husband built me an awesome, waist-high desk. i put chicken wire on the wall for my inspiration board. and my friend natalie and i made bird dream catchers.
my apologies if in my haste some of the pics are a bit blurry. i didn't want to mess with the lighting, and frankly was feeling a bit lazy. so there you go.

oh, and the underlining thing.....more computer/blog meyhem! does anyone know how to fix it??

my trip to nervous-breakdown-ville

i know i've blogged about this love/hate relationship with computers. yes. i know i have because once a year or so my computer makes me jump through hoops. this time the term "panic-attacks" doesn't even begin to come close to an accurate description of my experience.

i'm not going to go through the play-by-play of it all. i will just say that i have been schooled by my computer and hard drive. did you know you can lose everything on your hard drive? yep, you probably did. in fact, judging by the look on the Best Buy workers face, i am one of very few naive people out there who didn't know this. it doesn't take much really. and then, poof. gone. seriously, totally gone. pictures, digi files, music, programs. gone. tears were shed. heart palpatations occured. i assure you i am not being dramatic. i came face to face with my total dependence on my computer and hard drive - and it wasn't pretty.

so lesson learned. the hard way. the hardest way. i will back EVERYTHING in creation up - three fold. period.

oh, and thank you to donna - computer diva extraordinaire. stacey - cs3 diva extraordinaire. and stephan, for occasionally bringing me back from that oh so dark, rocking myself, crazed stare, senseless mumbling, state of being.
