Busy Preparing and Organizing ~

I've been busy preparing for our Sunday School class tomorrow. My friend ~ Peggy and I teach the class of 2 and 3 year olds at our Church ~ they're so adorable. I taught for about 25 years and then took a few years off. I had forgotten the types of crafts and games that this age can do ~ things that are age appropriate. Fortunately ~ we have excellent Sunday School Curriculum and the Lessons are easy to plan.

I was shocked and quite saddened to find out that SomeBunny had thrown out ALL of the Large Bible Story Pictures that the Church has had for oh probably 100 years. Our Church had tons of Gorgeous Poster Pictures that I've used for many years and now they're gone. You know the saying ~ one man's treasure is another man's trash. I know they must have looked old and worn ~ like trash but I loved the way they looked rather authentic. Well, I did find this one image (above) of "Jesus and the Children" which I love. I spent several hours at Church looking in every closet and cabinet ~ maybe I'll find a few more of these Beautiful Pictures when I'm looking for something else. I'm going to check on Ebay ~ you can find anything and everything there.

I've also been working on my Ebay Store, Etsy Shop and website. I just need to finalize a few things on each of these sites. I have lots of ideas ~ just not much energy. There has been a feeling of "Fall" in the air these last 2 days and I've put a HUGE dent in my "To Do" list.

Printer Update ~ yes, it was a fatal message that I received on my Printer. I called Customer Support and I thought they would "talk me through" how to fix it. However, it's such a serious issue that they're sending me a brand new Printer for free. I just have to wait 3 days for it to arrive.

Email Update ~ Okay so I've lost all of my email from the last 8 months. I can't remember but 2 emails that were on my Computer that I might need. I'm sure for the next 3 years ~ I'll look for something and then realize that it's LOST forever. It's not Carbonite's fault ~ I don't think they back up Email programs. I know I need to switch over to a "web based" email account ~ then I wouldn't have to worry about this issue.

Picture Update ~ ALL of my pictures have been restored back onto my Computer thanks to Carbonite!!! I'm not the sharpest tool in the box ~ so I was restoring each image/picture one at a time. THEN ~ I saw the Carbonite ad on TV and it said that with 2 clicks you can restore all of your documents/pictures back onto your Computer. So, I looked and sure enough ~ there it was the "button" you click on to restore ALL of your files back to your Computer. It took a while ~ but I could walk away and not double click on each one of hundreds of files. I'm such a Slow Silly Bunny ~ but I'm loving my Carbonite!!

Organizing ~ I've been organizing all of my craft supplies so that I can make some cards for the new section in my Etsy Shop ~ Peter's Posh Paperie. I'm always looking for "Thinking of You" Cards to send and so I'm going to make some for me AND a few for my new Etsy Shop.

Basketball ~ Baby Bunny (who's 12 now) is really enjoying playing on her School's Basketball Team. She's the Point Guard (I think that what it's called) and they've already played two games. They lost the first one ~ but won the second Home Game and Baby Bunny scored several baskets. She has two games this coming week and I hope they do well in both of them. If they don't win ~ the Coach says they'll have practice on Friday. Maybe I should call her Basketball Bunny or Bouncing Bunny or Rebound Bunny.

Enjoy your weekend ~
