Creative Blog Award

I am pleased to tell you that Deirdra Eden-Coppel, from A Storybook World, has bestowed upon me and my blog this award:

Deirdra found my blog through the A-Z Blogging Challenge that I'm tackling this month. Over 1200 bloggers are participating, and we've challenged ourselves to post 26 times during the month of April. Deirdra came upon my blog from this list, and somehow, she deemed me worthy of this award. Thanks, Deirdra! She has created the artwork for her awards, and you can check out all of them here. She is an author and illustrator of fantasy and fairy tales. She has also entered the world of creating animation for e-books (obviously she's good at it, judging by these animated awards she's created).

Thank you, Deirdra, for this award! Now here's the irony -- today marks the post for M, and yet I've missed K, L, and M. You see, I've had major computer problems this week. My 12 month and 3 weeks-old laptop has been hiccuping for about a week (meaning, 3 weeks past the warranty -- Yay). I realized I can't send it away to be fixed until I get a replacement computer so I can keep doing my work (my day job running our local art society, and my other job of blogging and promoting my jewelry). So I bought a new computer on Monday, spent all day loading it, only to return it Tuesday due to a fatal error message. Bought a new computer, then spent all day Tuesday loading that up (like I have spare time for all that). My husband has a good deal at work to get the whole Word/Excel/etc. package for $5 (I know! Great!), but we haven't gotten the code yet, so I don't have the ability to attach any Word files or any other work to emails. The old computer now won't even open the internet, so I can't attach any of my photos to a blog post, because all the photos are located on that computer. Following me? Anyway, that's why I've missed posting my K, L, and M. I just can't do posts without photos. I'll try to take some new ones today to put on the new computer so I can keep going on this challenge.

There you have it. I receive an award, yet I'm neglecting my posting. Stay tuned, I'll be back and running shortly!

Please stop by Deirdra's blog and give her some love for spreading the love.
