    It's been a bit of a rough couple weeks, and it's time to make myself cheered up.. I am going to send a small little padded envelope of some scraps *and/ or a pattern of some kind * that I don't think I will use.
    So, to the second person to respond today asking, and that has not recieved anything from me before send me in a PM your address.
    This always makes me smile knowing someone else is having a hard time.. I know that sounds terrible, lol, but it does make my hard days easier to bear knowing someone else joins me in the struggle sometimes.

    So, if you've lost a family member, or dear friend, animal or not , within the last 2 months, and would like a little pick me up, hurry and reply, as it will go to person number 2 today..

    I just lost six years of work on my computer last night. The hard drive crashed. This was the computer where I had all my photos and digital scrapbooking files, as well as lots of quilting files. It's my own fault - I kept putting of the back up. Right now the online backup services are sounding like a pretty good idea.

    Not a death or anything that drastic but I still consider it a great loss. These were my memories.

    Sorry for your loss, Wendy. Glad you came in #2. I posted first so the next one would get it since mine wasn't as big a loss.

    Hey your loss is not a small loss, either.. I would shutter to think of my computer losing all the poems, and such I have on my hard drive.. Please dont think your loss is not a loss.. it is.. and it is worthy of scraps.. so, I will just put what I can in a small regular sized envelope, because your sadness ( frustration? ) speaks my language, too.. send me a PM of address, ect.. it wont be much, just scraps to fit in a letter sized envelope.. hope your computer can be fixed, or your mind remembers some of the stuff your brains of the computer once held.

    Thanks, Karen. I sent you a PM. Take a lesson from my experience and be sure to back up your computer.
