Computer crash...

I'm not sure how my theme post snowflakes came up this week over at the wednesday stamper, but thank you so much to the one that helped me out.

I've had my fair share of computer mishaps this winter, first my stolen email and then my computer crashed last week... I couldn't believe it!! I finally got back online last night when my new laptop was installed and my internetconnection was back up and running. You should think I had internet access at work, but I don't. You see we run a franchise supermarket and the company controlling our computersystems, has a very restrictive internet access policy, so I've been completely cut off for a week, but thankfully now I'm back online and very grateful to see my snowflake theme is up an running even though I've been unable to get it  posted, sorry.

I hadn't done a backup since summer and have lost most my digital collagesheets and quite a lot of collageimages and scans, but what to do :)  At least it finally came in handy that I've been too busy to post much this autumn and winter :) Wishing you all a wonderful week.
Hugs and appologies for not beeing around much lately,


  1. Hi my dear friend Linda,

    Oh what a disaster. I hope you came back and we see your wonderful creations.
    Good to see you and you ok.

    I wosh you a wonderful christmas time and a wonderful weekend. Big Hugs.

  2. So sorry about your computer and all your lost images!!! Glad you are back online.

  3. Oh my!!! computer trouble and losing images...I am SO sorry dear Linda!
    It was Belinda that came to your rescue posting a snowflake sample.
    Take care my friend
    Happy December to you and yours!
    p.s. thank you also for reminding me to back up my files...time moves so fast doesn't it!

  4. You have had a terrible time losing precious downloads like that. Am so sorry. Hope you will be able to retrieve them. Wishing you a Happy Christmas. Hugs Annette x

  5. Ohhh, Linda! I was wondering what happened!!! I'm so sorry to hear that you've had computer problems. Welcome back and good luck with your new laptop. May it run virus and crash free for a very long time! Hugs, Terri xoxo

  6. That was so terrible Linda!It is a pity you lost some of your files.Next time try to backup you files because it is safer having backups.There are very many ways or devices one can use for backups.Online backups are also available and they are very many forexample there is Mozy,Carbonite,Safecopy,SugarSync all these help in data security.Hope you will not forget to backup next time.Wish you all the best

  7. Hi Linda,
    what a tragedy! I`m really sorry. I wish that everything works well again soon and that we can admire your beautiful art.
    Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
    Hugs and more hugs
