Started off bad... Ending on a better note

Yes I am talking about my week. I have been working from home for about 4 years now and so I got a new laptop about 3 years ago so that I could have a reliable computer and not have to worry I paid good money from it. I got it from Alienware which is meant for gaming but I wanted the space and the speed. Well about a year ago it was running really slow so someone told me to back everything up and re-install windows. It was pretty simple to do. On Tuesday, that is my Monday I loaded up my computer to begin work and nothing. I could get on the internet and that was it. Then It would not even boot up. I was so upset and so frustrated. I had a friend just tell me she got a virus and it did the same thing. I was completely lost. I had to re-install windows all over again this time with no backup. I lost all documents, pictures, and anything that I had not saved in an email or some pictures that I have uploaded to Facebook. Just was not a good start to my week since I work from home full time and my crochet life is on my computer. Every pattern I own is on there. I could not work and I could not crochet from patterns. But the week started to get a little better when I got some new pictures.. The first was from Kelly at Kelly Ross Photography. She did such an amazing job on the Hello Kitty hat picture. That is her sweet daughter that would not give it up once she hat it on. The second picture was one that I was not even expecting. Amanda from Amanda Thompson Photography sent me this one of my favorite Elf hat with Pom Pom. So the week did get better and today I sold two things in one day. That is a first for me and I am loving my Flower Diaper Cover and headband set. It is selling so well and I am looking forward to getting some different colors worked up and photographed. And the last good thing for the week is that Jeannette from Crafty Hippo Designs featured my Etsy store on her blog. This was a complete surprise. I was not even expecting it and she just sent me an email to let me know. You should check out her blog. It is very cute and she has advertising space available too. I want to have my project list done before Spring Break so that I can spend some time with the kids. Wish me luck, and have a great weekend.

  2. Oh wow. Sorry about your computer troubles. Recently my husband had issues with his new Dell. He lost ALL his Masters work b/c he didn't back it up to his external hard-drive. Dell fixed it asap but still all that work he had to redo. needless to say, this time he is backing up weekly, if not more than that.

    I love you hats and those pics are too cute also! :D Glad your week ended on a better note.
