Frustrated

Sunday, November 03, 2013

I'm blogging to keep the streak going - but I'm not sure if you will be able to read it. I'm really don't know what is going on this evening, but Spark is being really difficult. I have been unable to reply to any threads, and as for commenting on blogs...... It has taken me AGES to try and list my food, I've used up so much energy I might need another meal to compensate emoticon

Undaunted I'm going to upload a few pictures and see what happens.



Today I sold at a craft fair. This was the view of the car park early in the day while we were still setting up. The cars are those of the other exhibitors. Shortly afterwards it was full of shoppers - and we had a very good day. Our room was on the first floor, I thought I would be looking out of this window all day waiting for customers. I'm glad I took the photo when I did as there wasn't another chance - and it was dark when we finished!



I was selling some stitched bits (you've seen something similar before) and also some of my prints



It was the first airing for my abstracts - and I was surprised and pleased at the response. DH thought they were too arty farty - they probably are, but as long as someone liked them I'll do some more..... emoticon

Onwards and Upwards! If this posts you'll be reading it - if it doesn't ........

What a strange day.

    Lovely work!! I was having problems yesterday evening but thought it was the laptop I was using - it's new and very temperamental. Sort of glad to hear it's Spark. Hope things ease up on the site today!

    I can't believe how many leaves are still on those trees!! Loved the arty farty abstracts. You do great work, my Beloved. Glad to hear the show was such a success. I'm so proud of you and excited it went so well in spite of your worrying about it. We've had high winds and storms all day so power was in and out. It's nearing midnight and I just started sparking...I got in a nice swim but only bike riding for my usual "walks". Coffee slopped out onto my big fat Sunday paper in the bike basket but it also got a bit of rain and sleet on it before we reached home. I relaxed a lot...good weather to pull up the covers and read a good book!

    Oh, I love craft fairs. It's definitely the right time of year for it. It doesn't matter what your husband thinks of your art. What matters is that someone is buying it. If they are buying, then someone is pleased with your work! (I am certainly not surprised.)

Sorry about your computer woes. Do you have more than one browser on your computer? Have you tested Spark with a different browser? If not, do as others have said: clear the cache and dump the cookies. (Be selective if you can, because cookies are used for things like saved passwords and all sorts of useful shortcuts that you don't know you are using until they go away.) emoticon

    Try dumping your cookies on the computer tonight. I have an auto-program called Computer Cleaner. As soon as I did Spark started behaving again.

I think your painting is beautiful. MEN! lol

    I see quite a few people are having problems too. I think it is getting better even as I type. When I am stressed I spark to unwind but when it's like today I feel like pulling my hair out. Was the craft fair in a car park if so you are very lucky as the weather forecast was very bad, but it hasn't been too bad here. Enjoy your evening!
