A Brand New Organized Year

When I first received word from Apple that my hard drive was recalled I shrieked a little.  My story is that I am a very disorganized artist.  I am always more consumed with creating skatey-eight designs, rather than filing all these numerous files in an organized fashion.

My computer is back, but not without a few hitches.  I won't bore you with the details. Suffice to say that I am still working out the new things and I am learning about Time Machine backup on my Apple iMac.

The good news is that with the hard drive recall, I am now writing from a virtually brand new computer.  So, I have vowed to be better at filing and trying to manually send these files to an external drive, just in case.

I am kinda glad that the Time Machines didn't work as well as promised with Applications.  (A word to the wise keep your software discs and put the serial number to those babies somewhere safe.)  Because it has given me a new approach to the new year.

For instance, I have just joined Adobe Creative Cloud.  A wonderful new way of being able to use software which is much more efficient than cluttering my computer with this and that.  Not to mention that the annual subscription is less than the cost of one software package I have been coveting.

Change is good and as much as this old gal has been living... "don't make me over", it's time for sailing through my day to day work and that means less clutter.  That means a make-over in my thinking.

I am nesting a brand new resolution for the New Year.  First and foremost I hope not to clutter my art room, computer files and photo library.

Although I will miss the Christmas season, I am working on putting away all my little seasonal bits and putting my house back together with less clutter too.

Most of all I begin this new year with a spirit of thankfulness to the Lord for all of His blessings.
