I'm happy to say that I am officially back online!!! Not that I was REALLY offline since I had access to my laptop...which by comparison is so sloooooooow and does not have any of my art files on it. So I guess you could say that I was a bit computer crippled.
But, I'm back all the way now. Purchased a new monitor at Costco today and it's even a bit bigger than my last one. A whopping 31". Makes my old 25" screen seem like childs-play now.
The up-side to being without a computer was that I worked on quite a few art jounral pages that I will share later today.
For now, I'm in heaven.
