Well, that was fast…

My honey, he’s such a legend. Within not quite a week of surprising me with my new Mac Mini, he’s even got me set up with most of my software and a MASSIVE External Hard Drive for all my toys. You could almost say I’m back in business…

Some Small gripes about Mac’s…. there’s no Picasa for Mac. Which is killing me right now. However we’re looking into some other software called Shoebox that looks pretty neat, and it supports an EHD. Only problem is I’ll probably have to get the Pro version because the Express (home) version only supports a limited number of images…. so what’s the problem? I just did a search on my ehd for .jpg. 18,900 + images later… and that doesn’t count psd’s or anything like that. That’s a lot of pictures!

Also it has refused to install some of my favourite fonts, claiming they have serious errors. Particularly all my Melissa Baxter Font Boutique fonts, which is a total bummer cos I LOVE those fonts.

The new interface is taking some getting used to.

Now the pluses –

It’s DEAD quiet. I mean so quiet you can actually hear yourself think.

Ok, I can’t think of any other pluses right now, except for probably the biggest one – no more wireless drop-outs. Last week I was probably connected for one hour out of every 6. In 30 second increments. How am I supposed to even read emails with that kind of connection? So now, I’m on, I’m stable, and I’m having fun.

Ok, in other news, my thoughts are with my Dad right now. Hi dad…. He’s got trouble with his dialysis arm and is in a great deal of pain and misery right now. Big {{hugs}} for dad, I’m thinking of you almost constantly.

Got some other stuff going on too at home that I can’t talk about yet. No, I’m NOT pregnant lol. Things are just a bit crazy around here, so if I go Awol, just yell nice and loud.

Ok, so if you’ve read this far, hooray! Have a pretty layout to make you smile.


Background paper from Comforting quilt, everything else from Ashley Olson’s new Baby Girl Big Kit. Can’t remember the fonts – go to SBB or Digishoptalk and see there, ok? lol…

Ok, gotta post and run peoples!Happy Crafting - Cassie.

    I saw this pretty layout at DigiShopTalk, as I was racing thru at a million miles an hour, and thought, I must go back later and comment on it … and it’s YOURS! Beautiful layout, Cass … and glad to see you back in business! 🙂

    That layout is gorgeous. I hope I get me a pretty little girl like that:) She is adorable!!!

    Glad your Mac is all go and you are only having some minor issues – OK some big ones (fonts), but I am sure you will get them all sorted out ASAP.

    Sandi 🙂

    I hope your dad feels better soon! Your layout is so sweet! Bummer about missing Picasa – I don’t know what I’d do without it. But I’m still jealous of your new Mac. 🙂
