Computer Trouble

Unfortunately, my very good and faithful friend Lappy the computer has breathed his last breath. I'm awaiting a newly built computer to house his memories. Sorry for the brief post and my time away. We'll be back very soon with a new year full of fun projects and experiments.

Soooooo Pretty!

Happiest of Holiday wishes to you all.
