well tommy came to the rescue again. my computer was completely messed up. i haven't even been on etsy in a couple days because the issues were so bad. he has spent countless hours trying to fix it and tonight he finally reformatted it. well, its like i have a new computer. he is awesome!!!! i am so grateful to him because a big part of my life revolves around my computer.
but now starts some new problems i have to find answers to. i need to find a good, SAFE place to download pictures for my digital collages. google image searches may have been how i infected my computer and i do not want that to happen again. so now i have to find an answer. i am a little scared to do too much on the computer. i am strictly going to sites that i know are safe...for now. like i have mentioned before shutterstock, which always have the best pix, is $250 a month so that is out. hopefully there is a cheaper alternative out there.
for now i am just going to bask in the glory of my computer that is problem free and try to keep doing work from the photos i already have on my computer, which is a good amount. so my seven followers, if anyone out there knows of a good site let me know.
