Technology

It's an amazing thing. I can remember those days when we didn't have it and I often wonder how we would manage today.

The husband has been on me for a while to get a new computer. New computers mean new frustrations...in my book anyway. I am not techno saavy and non techno saavy = crankiness! Recently my beloved computer started showing it's age. It freezes up, it slows down and now...it is groaning and creaking. Yes...weird sounds are coming from my CPU. I have been coddling it, begging it to hold on just a little bit longer.

Tomorrow is a big day. The techno saavy guy is coming to my house to kick my new computer into gear. I got a wireless network thingy and a new laptop. But with that I have had to make some decisions on the technology on my old computer. I came to the decision to do away with my website and move deeper into blogland. I will miss my old website but am excited to put all my energy into one location.

So to kick things off straight away I am posting my scheduled website update right here!! Come on in and visit my Halloween store...

Dear Colleen, what a wonderful idea! That's exactly why I started a blog for my antique store ~ why have a website when a blog is so very easy to update and change? Your work is absolutely beautiful ~ such an amazing artist you are and congratulations on your Art Doll cover!! xxoo, Dawn

Colleen,

PC or Mac, the newer computers BLAZE! I am a graphic artist by trade and the improvements over the years are so great. You will love your new laptop! There is certainly a learning curve, but the speed of the computer (once your skills catch up) will amaze you! They are absolutely wonderful tools.

Dear Colleen,
Congrats on your "All in One" Site.
And for learning new technology! You go girl!

All of your spooky little maidens are beautiful! I tried to post a comment under the ladies, but because I don't have a google account it wouldn't let me.
