Changing Accounts Is For The Birds

I'm starting over with a new twitter page.  Unfortunately, when Hotmail got hacked, I did too.  I had to completely shut down my Hotmail account and reestablish my emails and passwords for both of my websites.  I had to change all my email addresses on all of my other type accounts also.  This took me the better part of, what, 4 days now?  I'm still trying to remember all of the websites that I have subscribed to with my old email account.  Do you know how many websites, blogs, twitters, and anything else you have sent emails to that you now have to contact to change over to another email account?  Oh, and you can't forget Facebook.  Most people only have one, maybe two, Facebook accounts.  Me?  I have FOUR.  I still have tons to find, or find out about by accident, because not only did I have to change all my email accounts just to get access to my Artfire accounts, I had to completely reformat my computer.  I almost cried to know that I had, and still have all this work ahead of me.  If I hadn't saved 95% of my pictures and everything else, I would have been in tears.  So, here I am, letting everyone know how important it is to save everything you have on an external drive or what ever means you have.  You never know when a big company like Hotmail will get hacked again and cause you more headache than heartache.

National Platunum

Has anyone had any problems with a company by the name of National Platunum services taking any money out of their accounts without any authorization?  Well, over the weekend, this company took not one but two charges of $99.95 out of my account.  They have caused me to go into overdraft and my bank then charged me $25.00 for each charge.  I contacted my bank but they told me that there was nothing that can be done.  I have attempted to contact the company through email and from the phone number on the email and on my bank withdrawal.  I just don't have any idea what to do.  I don't have any money for my bills, medications, or Christmas gifts.  Can anyone help?

Crocheted Little Things Shop

Good morning to all my bloggers.  I have chosen a random shop to feature today.  The name of this shop is Crocheted Little Things.  She makes blankets, gloves, slippers, and so much more.  You really need to check out this shop.  

One of the items that I really think are cute are these Crocheted Cupcake slippers.  She says that these are made using  100% acrylic yarn with your choice of colors.  The sizes range from a size 5 to a size 10 1/2.  She also says to give 2 - 3 days to make these wonderful slippers.


The next item that I would like to share with you is this beautiful Crocheted afghan ripples in black and greens 60X40.  She says that this one is made using acrylic yarn.  Also, if you would like one of these but in a different color, then to contact her to discuss colors and patterns.

Now Christmas is just around the corner (I know, don't remind you).  I just LOVE these cute Christmas ornaments.  She says that they come in a set of three.  

Ok, have I peaked your curiosity yet?  She has so many cute, beautiful, and inexpensive items in her shop that it would take me all day to list everything.  You will just have to go and see for yourself.

What I Have Been Doing

Hello to all my readers.  I know I have been scarce here lately.  It's because of several reasons.  The main reason is because I am down to the wire on getting my custom orders done for Christmas.  One of them is a king size Denver Broncos quilt that I am doing in the fabric stained glass.  I have also been trying to get my craft room in order.  It's a small room so I am having to organize it to wear I can get to all my crafting items, which mostly include my fabric and jewelry supplies, but it also includes my paints, frames, and glass for my painted stained glass.  I also have miscellaneous other supplies such as junk jewelry that I use in collages that I do. (I haven't listed any of those as of yet).  My craft room is about half done now.  Another reason is that I have three craft shows coming up that I have to get ready for.  One on November 6 and two in December.  I am working on a Fabric Stained Glass Yellow Ribbon (support our troops) with a rose and star. I also would like to make another Messenger Bag if time permits.  

I would also like to let all of you know that I have opened two new websites and Facebook pages.  One of the websites is for my jewelry section.  The name is Majestic Crystal Rose and the website is  My Facebook page for this website is

The second website is for my quilts and other sewn items.  The name is Blue Desert Roses and the website is  My Facebook page for this website is

I am going to keep my Tina's Treasures Facebook page and my Etsy shop.  Feel free to leave your links in my discussion pages.  I look forward to seeing you all there.

New Design

Hello all.  I just wanted to let you all know about the changes I have made to my blog.  I decided that my other blog was bland.  I changed the layout and added a few new widgets.  I added Rapid Cart which if you don't know what that is it's a clickable link that allows someone to purchase a piece of your art without even having to go to the website.  Another widget that I have added is a Guestbook.  You can sign the guest book and you can also add your links.  Anyone can look at who has signed the book and are able to check out your sites.  There are a few other little things that I have changed or added.  I'm still learning how to post things and add others like banners for exchange and all but I will get the hang of it soon.  

Thanks for stopping by and take a few minutes to sign my guestbook.  I would greatly appreciate it.
