Birds and Bonnets Vintage Workshop Swap


I have signed up for Karla's and Beth's "Birds and Bonnets Vintage Workshop Swap". I finally was able to upload the images after having a hectic time trying to do this. (I still need to learn how to use my computer). I was so disillusioned yesterday after trying and trying (I even stayed up until 2:00 AM trying, even my hubby and son could not understand what was going on with my computer or with me. I even called my brother in SA for help, but of course, since I really don't know computer language, I could not even communicate with my brother as to what I was trying to accomplish. Ugh!! I was so ready to just give up trying to figure it out and was ready to announce " I QUIT, The Computer has won, I will no longer blog if I can't even upload images and try to join swaps, I will just go and fade away into the sunset. But then, I thought, No, I will sleep on it and try again in the morning. So, for what ever reason, I really don't know what happened. I read the instructions again, and IT WORKED, the computer fairies sprinkled their fairy dust and everything uploaded as if magic! Soooo, I still belong to Blogland. So if you want to join the swap head on over to Karla's Cottage or Gathering Dust to sign up.

Hi, thanks for stopping by. I too have had numerous arguments with my computer over it not obeying my commands. Sometimes you do have to turn it off and come back to it.

Stop by again sometime.

Thank goodness for computer fairies!! Too many times I've been "stuck" & unable to figure out what I'm doing so I can sure relate to what you went through! I bet your city wide g. sale was lots of fun.....I'm going to one on Saturday & can't wait to see what's out there!

Enjoy your day!

Irma,
I'm so glad you figured out how to upload your photos. I know it's been crazy sometimes trying to figure out all the things you can do on blogger. But it's fun and you get to meet people from all over.
Hugs,
Laurie
