It has been a long time since I have posted. My resolution was to try to post at least once a month. Ah….. time keeps on slipping into the future. My intentions are good. So much has changed for us this last year. The studio has survived the economic downturn. We are still here! Yeah!! We love what we do and hope to keep changing with the times. New products on the horizon are iphone covers with personalized with your photos. Tell us what you would like to see. I have not kept this website up to date because I have been busy helping others keep theirs up to date. I know excuses, excuses, my bad.
Here a sign I just created recently for a local non profit, California Vocations. They have opened a new Thrift Store.
Another year gone by in the blink of an eye! Wow. Hope everyone’s Christmas and New Year Holidays were wonderful. We have been working hard to keep our studio running smoothly. Our devoted clients keep us alive in this down economy. We are so blessed with a wonderful family, friends, and clients. We are ready for 2012. Our goal this year is to communicate better with everyone, keep our blog alive and updated! Yes! We love what we do and will continue to keep up with the latest trends yet preserve the traditional too.
Spring time, ah the beauty of flowers in the spring. We have had a crazy winter this year so spring is a little later than usual. We still have daffodils which are normally gone by now. April showers did bring us so many beautiful flowers.
It’s May, it’s may! Spring Fever and time to tend to the garden and bask in the beauty and joy that it brings. The greenery this time of year is so nourishing and healing.
One of my favorite all time songs is “It’s May” from Camelot. Below are part of the lyrics of the chorus. Who sang that song?
“Tra la! It’s May!
The lusty month of May!
That lovely month when ev’ryone goes
Tra la! It’s here!
That shocking time of year
When tons of wicked little thoughts
It’s May! It’s May!”
The word for today is backup. What do you use to backup your important files? The cloud? An external hard drive. DVD’s or CD’s? All of the above. We have had some bad luck with Western Digital external hard drives. Lost 2 so far and one was unrecoverable by an expert who works for the City and the Police department. Bummer!
We do use an online service called Carbonite and now have found that LaCie hard drives are the most durable, so far. The hardest part of backup is the fact that you should backup to two different locations whether they be online or on an external hard drive. Dropbox is cool for sharing files across computers. It is a free service that lets you bring all your photos, docs, and videos anywhere! Ah technology!
