Remember in my last post I talked about our new computer? Well, last night there was a storm and it got fried! I was making lasagna and it suddenly got dark and windy and the wind started. I ran around closing windows to keep the rain from blowing in. Then the thunder and lightning started so I ran shutdown both computers. I was almost finished with the last layer of lasagna when the thunder crashed so loudly that I jumped and said "Good God Almighty!" LOL Then the lightning immediately followed and I heard a loud click. I guess that was our new computer dying.
Thank goodness Patrick is not a procrastinator (like his wife). He took the processor back this morning and it was exactly the 30th day since we bought it and the last day that we could simply exchange it for a new one! Whoohoooooo. We bought the extended warranty as well, but we would have had to wait 10 days while they shipped that one off to fix it had it not been within the 30 days. I am so grateful!!!
I also wanted to come here and share a couple of websites I happened upon this morning. I am painting a shelf and was looking for inspiration. I am always inspired by Violette of course and I was hungry to see more things that had bright colors like she uses. I found a woman, Wendy Prentice, that I'm pretty sure is a good friend of Violette's and I loved the site where I found her. Go take a look and enjoy all the happiness! Wendy also has a blog and a website.
I love it when I find new (to me) artists and fun new things to look at. I was definintely inspired.
Another great site I came across was Luonsart Amazing stuff! I want to be sure to tell Violette and Laura (another artist who inspires me!) about this site.
I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I did, if you like that type of art.
I love folk art. It just makes me happy. I've already painted a nice checkerboard on the trim of the shelf and I've laid down a happy little orange line of paint. Now I'm off to see what else happens. :)
