OOPS! Winners of 1st Giveaway & UGH!

Sorry about sending the post with nothing in it.  That is the kind of day I am having! :((

Anyway will explain that part after I announce the winners of Giveaway #1.  I only got 3 comments on that post and I know all 3 ladies for a long time, so I used to select the winners.

Congratulations to:  Christina Davey & Sue Kment!

Ladies please e-mail me your addresses so I can send.  I know I should have those addresses, but the mess & state of mind I am in would take some time to find them.   As soon as I have your info, I will mail out your Lace & Seam bindings.  Thank you both & Mary Waspe for commenting!

Now on to the UGH! part!  I have been trying so hard to get this blog up and running and I think I just fried my new NIKON camera along with a ton of pictures that I was going to post!  The battery died while I was trying to upload them and there was no way to click on disconnect camera.  I did not know that the battery was dead and could find nothing in the program to tell me why my photos were not downloading or if there were any problems (This camera is just to darn complicated!!).  Since I still have my Olympus, I am not to upset about the Nikon (except for the loss of $$ to buy it).

What I am upset about is the pictures that are on it can't be retrieved if the camera is fried.  I don't know if I mailed the warrenty card on it, but I am pretty sure I saved the receipt.  Now to find it!

You know sometimes I really wonder about all of the products these days that are meant to save time and make our lives easier.  It might be great if you didn't have to read and learn 3" thick (not quite that much, but it feels like it) volumes of instructions for each item.

Anyway, I am just sick about this & losing some great pictures, so that is all I am going to do today!  If by some miracle and a lot of prayer, the camera comes to its senses, I will get on with it tomorrow. 

This has not been my week, but I am not giving up!  ONWARD & UPWARD!!  I will see you sometime tomorrow!
I hope you all have a wonderful evening!

oh lori, you should still get your pics off of your memory card-pics are stored on the memory card, not the camera. Just insert it into another camera or memory card reader. I download all pic with a card reader-much easier! I have a Canon power shot S95. A little spendy, but oh so worth it. I keep dropping camera's so finally got a metal body camera. It is a point an shoot type. I need simple LOL!!!

My suggestions is to get a card reader!

What is your email so I can send you my winning address? whoopeee!


Hi Lori,
Sue is right. Your pictures should be on your memory card. If your memory card is compatible with your other camera, you can put that memory card in your other camera and retrieve your pictures. If you want, I can help you further via email or even a phone call (I can call you as I don't get charged for long distance). You have helped me out a ton with my Spellbinders, it is the least I can do for my new friend. :-) Let me know. Kim
