Good News. Bad News.

GOOD NEWS.
Now that it has passed I can share something I made for my linesister's bridal shower. All of the bridesmaids planned a "fabulous" (a la Christian Sirano, lol) shower in Brooklyn two weeks ago. I decided to make a special pill box hat with a wedding veil. I must thank Nancy W @ Encue Creations for posting the video tutorial on this. Doesn't she look lovely! I can't wait for the wedding next month.


BAD NEWS.
My laptop DIED. I was rocking back and forth in a corner waiting for the Geek Squad to call and tell me everything is ok...alas...I arrived at Best Buy to hear the sad news that my sweet Vaio expired. She was only 3 years old!! So young...so sad *sob*sob* The worst part is ALL my pictures are on the hard drive...the memories of the 3 most exciting years of my life locked in hunk of broken metal. I'm going to send it to a Data Recovery center to get my life out of there. The estimated costs could be anywhere between $250-$1500....please PRAY to the good baby Jesus its the low end of that!!

GOOD NEWS.
My birthday is coming up on the 20th. WHOO HOO the big 25!! I took couple of days off to pamper and entertain myself. On the menu we have eyebrows by Damone Roberts, massage by Ease Salon, haircut by G's, nails by Serenity, facial by Red Door and party at BLVD.

BAD NEWS.
Now that I have to pay for a Data Recovery...and a new laptop...I have to demote my deluxe menu to a basic package..*sigh* :-(

GOOD NEWS.
I won the RTW Contest on Pattern Review!! Thank you all you sweet people for your generous comments and for voting! February was a really tough month for me and I really wanted to enter the contest because working on the dress was the only "me-time" I was able to attain during that time and I would have been highly pissed if I missed the deadline. Everyone did a wonderful job on their pieces ! At the end of the day, everyone is winner! Thank you Cidell for being the awesome moderator you are! I can't wait to see the judges selection :-)


Even More GOOD NEWS.
Mimi Jackson sent her Pay-it-Forward to me. She is truely a sweetheart. I'll stop right here because I can't upload any new pictures until I get my computer situation together again and I want to share this gift with everyone.


Until next time. Smooches.

Sorry about the laptop and the pics...it is one of the reasons I pay flickr...having lost a whole bunch of pictures the last time my computer crashed. I really gotta figure out that external hard drive thingy! :)

Congrats on winning the RTW contest - your dress is a knockout!

Oh goodness, your laptop story should be a lesson for me to back up my files. I hope the data recovery is successful.

Hey, congrats on the contest! And I love that pillbox hat, it's lovely. Hope you'll get ALL your data back soon. This is so unfair.

Mimi Jackson said...

Sorry to hear about your laptop. My Palm just died, and I KNOW the feeling, but I do synch fairly often, so it isn't as bad as it could have been...

Cennetta said...

Congratulations on your won!

I'm so sorry that I have been unable to read my favorite blogs in a timely fashion lately. My new job is sucking up a lot of my time (but I'm grateful for it). So congrats on winning the RTW Contest, your dress is fierce. And happy 25th. Let me think, did I have a 25th, I'm sure I did but it was sooooo long ago, it's hard to remember.

On the laptop, I would take it to another place. There was a news program here about laptop repairs, sort of a "sting" on computer repair shops. Only two were honest, the others really didn't know what they were doing. Best Buy was one of the ones that did not really have trained staff and did not know what they were doing.
