Reason # 4,123 - why I love this man.....

He fixed the USB ports on my computer!!!!!!!!!!  Now I can show you some fun stuff - such as this beauty:

Well, it will be when you see the next picture!  I found this at Goodwill for $10!  Score!  Then I sanded, painted, and recovered it all with materials I already had at home - even better!  2 days people!  I don't think I've E.V.E.R. completed a project in 2 days....

Here she is!  Not sure if I like the stenciled seat - but no worries - I have leftover drop cloth (yep, I said drop cloth) that I can use to recover my recovered seat cover.  Got it!?!

See ya soon!

I so love....

technology - most of the time that is.  I mean, do you remember a world before email, texting, or the internet?  It's kinda hazy when I try to think about it - but if I think REAL HARD I sorta remember asking my mom things like - "What does this word mean?" and then hearing "Look it up in the dictionary!"  Nowadays, my kids ask me the same thing - but my answer is "go google it!"  REALLY - who would have thought google would ever be a verb or noun?

I digress though. 

I so love technology, up til about a week ago.  I have several pics to share with you and my camera is playing nice - but now my USB drives in my computer have somehow gotten 'camera' shy and have scootched their way INSIDE of the case.  AHHHHH! 

So, if you promise to bear with me, don't give up on me, I promise I'll have Mr. S check this new problem out and fix it.  He's handy like that!  Love my computer geek :)

For now, I've busted out the Christmas music and am finishing my final cards!  Whew!
