New Halloween Goodies and a Clean Computer!

What a weekend...I've been on pins and needles for DAYS waiting to get back here to share all the new Halloween goodies....

Were you wondering where I'd gone?

The condensed version of what happened is that we awoke Saturday morning to a very sick computer; dire warnings recommending immediate service, lest a complete meltdown occur.....

Panic. Computer withdrawl. Not to mention recalculating the weekly budget. Yikes!

Apparently the poor little fan inside the computer tower is no match for three cats and two long haired dogs (go figure, hehe)...So off we went to see the good people at Landis Computer, where our computer stayed until they delivered it good as new just a few hours ago. :)

In the meantime, my friend Jen was kind enough to let me check email on her computer yesterday (thanks, Jen!)

And this morning? A clean computer, no damage to the hard drive, and a much relieved ME - YAY for happy endings. :)

Soooooooo, on to the new work....


This is one I wish I had painted for my own house - a wicked cool stand, perfect for showing off a jack-o-lantern, a candle, or a favorite Halloween collectible. It's listed on ebay now, but ends this evening. I can just picture it as a centerpiece or window display.


These three I decided to list in my Etsy shop (having neglected it for far too long, I think)....I really do try to keep things listed over there, but they seem to fly so fast! I've priced these with the economy in mind - no bidding, just direct purchase, so if that appeals to you, take a peek. :) *UPDATE* - SOLD

I've been busy, busy, busy with commissions too, and making serious progress, so stay tuned. I'll post some commission photos soon....

That's about it for now - so much still to do and so little time (I really do need some elves!) I'm on my way to brew a cup of Jasmine tea and catch up on blog posts now - just a quick break and then I'm off to work on those commissions, and next week's giveaway....

Back again soon. ;)

These are simply stunning! I can't decide which one is my favorite though I am always partial to anything with black cats.
So glad your computer is up and running...i know how stressful that can be. One of my cats spilled my coffee all over the computer desk today...thank goodness it missed the keyboard :)!

Love the new work, Carolee. Computer withdrawl is terrible, isn't it! Whatever did we do without computers, lol. And yes, I've had pet hair issues with mine before too!

Beautiful work as always!!

Had the same problem with my computer (4 cats), only my fan burned up my motherboard and did much damage. Fortunately my favorite geek was able to save all my photos. Now I vaccuum weekly the front intakes and am amazed at the amount of hair that comes out!!

Glad yours is back and running!

Carolee said...

Thanks very much, all. :) Gail, I was going to vaccuum too, but they warned against it - apparently vaccum cleaners can be prone to static electricity, which can damage the computer. Instead, they recommended removing the side panel once a month and using canned air to clean the fans. Another thing to add to the "to do" list, *sigh*....
