Sigh...................back from the Hospital

Well, it's really about time................I  have had such a long stretched out downer with my computer being hacked and those of you who have had this happen to you know what I mean. Not only was it hacked, there was a hidden virus which messed up my files, re-sorted them, hid them, and constantly directed me to a porn site!!! Gross and double gross!!! Everything had to be wiped out on my system - all programs and files. Luckily I did have some back up but even those had to be carefully scanned and re-scanned. It has been a long process to get back up to "normal"....................not fun either.  During this time, my creative head went out of the window and all I could do is clean the house..............well, at least the house is clean!!!

Posting to start soon.............thank you, everyone, for your patience. I never wish this to anyone. Please do be careful out there when you receive pop ups or strange e-mails...........cyber space is very dangerous!!!

hugs, Patti

Oh dear, I can imagine your frustration. Hope things are back to normal very soon and you'll be back in the crafting groove. Take care.

So sorry to hear the hack. It's a big pain to get everything back up again. Almost makes me want to switch over to a Mac at times.
