on the road to recovery ...

when you are down you learn who your real friends are. 
 is that a saying or perhaps I just made it up? 
 either way - it is true, 
even when you are just talking about your computer. 

 shuttering at the lack of fonts (even some I was pretty sure came standard on PS Creative Suite) 
as well as the lack of pre-set actions,  I was pleasantly surprised at the service of Topaz Adjust. 
there was a brief problem getting my purchase code to re-enter - but in no time it was accepted 
and it's back even better than before. 
 can you say that about the programs you take for granted on your computer?

I have to figure out a new signature, 
track down the different brushes I had accumulated over the years, 
as well as a few standard actions that we use on a consistent basis 
(good time to let go the many that were just taking up space), 
but over all we are definitely on the road to recovery.


  1. Oh I feel your computer crashed about 6 weeks ago and it seems to take forever to recover and re-install all the goodies you have collected over the years. But like you said, a good time to weed out the unwanted. Welcome back!!

  2. I had a hard drive issue about 18 months ago. I had a back-up but the back-up was corroded and my iphoto library was lost - I'd have given my left arm for those photos back!!

    Good luck my friend!

  3. Nicki, I am sorry about your computer issues but glad you are getting it fixed....
    I have missed seeing you...

  4. First thought I had: I need to back up my files! Glad you're back. That dandelion photo is just fabulous.

  5. Welcome back ~ let the fun continue :)

  6. Ugh. Computer issues suck. I never back my files up enough. From time to time sure, but not nearly often enough!

    Glad to see you're still around after my loong blogging break. :)

  7. First of all...SO happy you're back. I've missed your photos and humor and insight. I'm sorry about your computer woes. I'd be so sad losing programs and actions that would be hard to get back. I do like your new signature though. Welcome home!

  8. Thank goodness - you're back in business. I've started to go through files and delete unwanted photos from years ago - they seemed like a good idea at the time!

  9. Glad to hear recovery is underway!
    Hope to see you posting great shots soon.

  10. Oh my goodness Nicki...if this ever happened to me...well, ya just don't wanna know! :). But I am so glad you are back. You were MISSED my friend! :)

  11. Loving these shots.. good to hear your back.. :)
