I’ll start with the bad news, then show you the fun stuff. The sad news – after May 31, Stampin’ Up! will no longer support My Digital Studio (MDS). The forum, the downloads, the tech support, the professional printing – pfft. Gone. I’m sad, because I use the program all the time. And, wouldn’t you know, I finally got an e-cutter. Darn that Murphy and his law! Fortunately, we can still use the program, it just won’t be updated. And I’m looking into other digital options, so I’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, you’ll want to back up your program and your downloads. Save the downloads and program to a thumb drive or other device so you won’t lose them if, God forbid, your computer crashes. (You don’t have to execute them; just save them.)
You may also want to look through all the downloads that are available to see if there are any you’d like before they’re gone. There are also some online classes you may want – and if you purchased any of the online classes, be sure you also back those up as well.
Now the fun things. I babysit Miss Amelia on Mondays and Tuesdays. On Monday, we hang out at the house, but Tuesday is one of my office days, so she goes along with me. She likes hanging out there, because you never know who might show up. Yesterday, her Granddaddy, Great-granddaddy and Jon were all there. And, since she’s a huge flirt, she was in her element.
She decided to help me with my computer work.
She loves my computer – and my cell phone, my coffee cup, and the TV remote. She is very like her father in this. He also loved electronics as a baby – and still does. Anyway – she was going to town on the computer, but when I decided I really did need to get something done, she kept trying to delete my work. So Mike found a brand new keyboard, just for her.
You can’t tell in this picture, but she was quite delighted with her new office equipment. I put her little mirror in front of the keyboard, so it was kind of like a baby laptop. This kept her busy for about 15 minutes, and then she discovered the cord. Apparently the plug is really fun to chew on. I’m thinking her parents wouldn’t have approved, so we had to substitute the keyboard for something else. Ah, well. It gave me enough time to design a logo for a marketing piece for Cornerstone and transfer some payments to rental clients.
We’re going to have to design a little desk for the girl in a few months, because she wants to do everything we’re doing. Don’t tell her mom and dad that we’re using her for child labor!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Don’t forget to stop back in after 9 p.m. for the March Madness blog hop! Have a wonderful day!
