I have been MIA. I have been dealing with fraud since 2 days before Christmas. I actually caught them in the act. Not quick enough, however I think I am almost recovered. They tried to empty every account I had. I now have lifelock as I got a message saying my information has been sold over 150 times. I do not think a cashless society is a good idea. Christie and I had a fine time considering I lost all my designs even though I had carbonite. It was set up incorrectly (by me) 6 years ago. UGH! I m still finding purchases. A few sites could not give me redownloads. Christie's computer broke down a week and a half into our visit so she did lots of shopping as we shared my computer. I heard from her that the peanut butter was well received by friends and family. She arrived with half a large suitcase and still had to pay for an extra bag on the way home. Lol! We also did a bit of learning on silhouette. I am still in the manual, however it is hard to concentrate with all the happenings going on. I decided I wanted to dye my t-shirt before affixing the heat transfer vinyl. On another note my niece purchased basically the same Christmas design which is fun since she is on the other side of the country. Please say a prayer for my son as he is still struggling. I also got caught into a hack with facebook's new messenger. They have reverted back to the original. sorry if this caught you because I clicked the button. It is a spider type of hack and hopefully all is good now. Thank you so much. Hugs and prayers to all who need it. Today I am finding Joy!

Psalm 30
4 Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints,
and give thanks to his holy name.[b]
5 For his anger is but for a moment,
and his favor is for a lifetime.[c]
Weeping may tarry for the night,
but joy comes with the morn

I must say the last 6 or so years has really kicked my butt. I have learned a lot and will thrive despite the challenges. To me thriving means getting creative. Lol!

Sorry to hear of all your problems. I sure hope we do not become a cashless society. I will not do Internet Banking. I am of the old school, like a bank book and go in each fortnight to draw out enough till the next fortnight. Hope you get it all sorted soon. Hugs

Thank you, still waiting on paypal, which I had plans to get a table press with the dies to do leather snaps, grommets and rivets.

I think helping others is always the best way to get out of myself. I believe I helped a woman even though I would not allow her to take advantage of me. I also helped an ex-boyfriend of a friend who was in a motorcycle accident 6 months ago and has 2 plates and 23 screws in his leg. I did a lot of research for him and of course sent him $$$. He did say I helped him more than anyone and now that he is secure I want to get my creative mojo back.

It did take a lot out of me. Today I choose joy! I almost have completed the rest of my credit checks, Thankfully no new accounts were set up. I still am waiting on paypal to "give me back my money! Then they are getting dropped like a hot potato!
