Thanks for understanding and following my terms.
*** ADDED NOTE, Please Read ***
If you're looking for tutorials of my tags? Sorry but I don't write tutorials because I get very frustrated trying to keep track of what I did to create a finished tag. I always credit the fabulous tut writers when I've used a tutorial because they're the brave ones and without their sharing I wouldn't have learned how to fine-tune my designs. Just the way it goes Thelma.
I'm just missing the "Tutorial Writing Gene" I guess.

For my dear friend

I'm having a terrible time this week.
I got a call from the son of a dear friend Tuesday morning.
He told me his mom had died the night before.
Just as we had hung up the phone it rang right away.
This call was from the manager of our storage
unit .  he regrets to inform me that we have gotten
broken into YET AGAIN...
my heart can bearly stand that I'm missing my friend
and my brain has to process, in a split second!,
 that there's some F**King
excrements walking around helping themselves
to parts of my life I keep locked in safe keeping...
Sorry...I'm hating life for a few days here.
It seems that's the only thing within my control anymore.
I don't have my Barbs to sound off with...sighhhhs

No blank saved!

Heavy Siggghhhh

     I sigh because I find myself in a WTF? place.

   3 times this week I went to try some of the new tutorials that I saw go thru my Yahoo groups.   3 times I can't try the tutorials because I can't open the supplies that are being saved as .rar files.  Not everyone's PC is willing to let it's user download a .rar opener...Sony Viaio's are one of them.   Sighhhhh

   Sooo, at least, if there was something to be learned of a new technique, I did that! That's what a well written tutorial is for... to teach.  I learned how some tutorial writers don't care to be bothered when asked if there was a way I could get the supplies in a different form...( asking went unnoticed/ignored...hmm.)  That's fine with me.  All I can think at this point is it's part of a certain clique and my planets don't align with their stars OR it promotes ones creativity to get into overdrive and make the best with one's abilities.

.....I'm good at that...hehe!
nuff said.
