What You Need to Know... May 27, 2015

Now to let the cat out of the bag... I have been withholding from you.

Yes, it is true, I am not able to upload photos and videos consistently. There is definitely something wrong with my laptop. We have had Comcast out to check their modem, nothing is wrong on their part. So, that leaves my part... the laptop, and when it comes to technology, my sons are my IT go to taskmasters. My youngest son is at a loss on what to do since it appears to be software issues, ie. drivers. Well, then that becomes the need for my oldest son's assistance. Here in lies the reason for the length of time I have been dealing with this lag or rather inability to do my uploads.  He has been in China for two and a half months!

Yes, China, something I did not want to share publicly while he was in fact out of the country. He returned home yesterday. He is dating a girl from Shanghai who came to the US for college. They met over two years ago and have been dating for almost two years now. Can you see my dilemma?!

Long distance IT help has not worked for us. Believe me, he tried. I now even know how to use Gyazo to upload screen shots (thanks to my youngest son). I would take shots of my system information and Skype the link to my son in China. From there we tried a few drivers to no avail. 

What I need to ask of you... Please have patience while we work through these computer difficulties. I am still holding workshop/club nights on a regular basis. It is just time consuming to upload photos and videos. I promise we will get on this soon. I miss "seeing" all of you through my YouTube videos.

Now for what is happening and what you need to know for the next few weeks.

What You Need To Know... May 7, 2015

Hi paper crafters,
 
This week has been one crazy busy week. I forget from year-to-year how busy May becomes at the school. Also, in the last week of April and the first week of May my boys have their birthdays. Oh yes, there is also fitting in the mothers for Mother's Day. Well, I can check all of those off my "to do" list. We met the goal of getting most everyone together last night to celebrate. It was a great time! My oldest is now 23 and the youngest is now 21.
 
How this all affects you... I asked the gals who were supposed to attend tonight's workshop if they would be so kind as to allow for a reschedule to next week. Yes was the consensus. What a big help that was to me in getting through last night's celebration and today's need of cleaning up the house and getting the yard mowed. So... my question to you is are you available to join us on the 14th for the graduation/Father's day cards? Let me know and I will have the supplies cut and ready for you. 5 cards/$10
 
Were you thinking of coming to next week's scrapbook workshop on the 14th? Come on along, we will make it a grand paper crafting night for all.
 
Lastly, do not forget to order the Blossom Cardmaking WOTG (G1095) $24.95 + $4.95 shipping for May 21 www.kimferguson.ctmh.com
 
That's all for now. Enjoy this great weather.
