playing with bits one byte at a time

I’m lost …

I’m lost. It’s been a day and a half since theStudio server took a major dump … it crashed so bad that new equipment had to be bought. Fortunately, all the data is safe, but as anyone who has purchased a new computer knows, it takes time to load and configure all the software that’s needed to make that data available. BUT, it’s not the nuts and bolts I miss, it’s the family. I never realized how many times a day I poked my head into the forums to see what was up or to just look up some information I needed until I was unable to do that.

While the amazing server team is working on getting things going again, I figured I would at least show what should be available tomorrow once the store is back in full swing. It’s a pack of paper templates that I made during the creation of the great collab that I did with Manu of Manu Scraps called Wild Thing. Called Primitive Prints, they’ll be on sale for 30% off in both of my CU stores thru October 25th.


In the process of posting this, I noticed that I missed posting about last Saturday’s CU release. It’s a pack of Vintage frames that I made from some cabinet cards I “won” on eBay. They were a prize for week 1 of the Next Designer Contest. These will be on sale for 30% off thru October 18th in both of my CU stores.


That’s it for now … HUGS!!!



  1. I feel the same way, Jill. I don’t know what to do with myself. Hope it’s back on line soon and I’m so happy that the data is safe. Now that would be a nightmare!

    • I’m sure there are a lot of us feeling the same way. I was really disappointed that it wasn’t back up this morning. I stayed up past midnight my time (Pacific) because I had hoped it would be back up by last night and had offered to help a friend get her sale set for today (plus turn mine on). Needless to say, neither of us have a sale set at theStudio.

  2. Hi Jill,

    I totally understand how you feel. I’m suffering from acute withdrawal symptoms… 🙁
    I miss the posts, the interaction, seeing the new images that go with the challenges. It’s not as if I don’t have things to do, but somehow, life is not the same. Hope The Studio is back by Sunday afternoon.

    Meanwhile, many of us are haphazardly communicating via designer’s blogs, and the sporadic posts at The Studio’s Facebook page.

    Hope The Studio is back by Sunday afternoon.

    ps. Btw, JulesW and I keep running into each other in various venues on the ‘net. I think we’re following each other around… 😉

    • I think the 2 of you have a plan … LOL!!!

  3. Just popped in to say thank you for the holly freebie in the DS newsletter

    • You are SO welcome!!! I was afraid to release that pack so early in the year, but it was burning a hole in my pocket and I also had the freebie.
