Book Giveaway Results and Other Ramblings

Yet again--no winner for the book by Ann Rinaldi- The Coffin Quilt.

I guess that will be the last of the giveaways on my site for now. Unless readership picks up and more people start commenting... Oh well, it was worth a try!

Congratulations to The Lohrs--who will be receiving a copy of She Always Wore Red by Angela Hunt. It's a great sequel to the first book, Doesn't She Look Natural? and I can't wait for book three to be published!

Through all of the computer drama over the past few months, I've kind of been letting things drop on the web side of things. I FINALLY broke down and had one of my students build a computer for me, and I'm still trying to get all of my files and pictures situated on the new machine. I know--mad4books--REALLY wants to see my VBS "angels." And I'm sure you all want to know about my parents' trip to Europe and what they brought me back, right?!

Well, my website bookmarks will have to be rebuilt because I haven't been able to get then switched--grrrr... and "my pictures" has disappeared somewhere. Yes, all 6,000 pictures are hiding somewhere on this new-fangled program. Grrr...VISTA...I WILL WIN in the end! Those missing pictures WILL be found, and then I can share them with you. Okay?

However, I AM thankful that my computer runs MUCH faster and I am able to finally load Photoshop. Now, I just need to figure out how to use it so I can start scrapbooking digitally. Anyone....? I also need to learn how to use Dreamweaver so that I can revamp our websites: Professional Horticultural Services and pH-Farms. I have all kinds of ideas on what I want to do, but when I opened up the program, most of the letters looked like gobbledy-gook. So, it's off to Borders to see if I can find books to show me how to use each of the programs. Have a great week!

Ugh. Better you than me when it comes to computers, computer problems, digital scrapbooking, etc.!

I'm fixin' to (yeah, that's right, I said "fixin' to") get in bed with another good book...being the summer school librarian at Cooper ROCKS!!!

Off to Happy Book Land,
Kristy, who can't wait until you locate all those pics...and sure hoped you backed 'em up on a flash drive...
