So it turns out that iMac's can only handle 4 years working with Hug and Kiss Designs before they can't handle the foul language and they DIE. Just shut off and DIE forever! (I've had 2 now that have both done the same thing in an 8-year-period.) I nearly died myself when the first one bit the dust and I didn't have a back-up for any of my business (or personal [ie. porn]) files. Thankfully the hard drive was saved and I learned my lesson. So when iMac #2 died a couple of weeks ago, I was more prepared both emotionally and technically.
Anyway, I'm back with a newer and skinner computer and all is good. For 4 years anyway.
I've also been hard at work gearing up for Christmas. I know, I know, talking about Christmas in summer is fucked up, but in the greeting card world you barely escape Christmas. In June/July I was designing new Christmas cards, then this month has been all about Christmas box sets and something new for us... GIFT TAGS! The gift tags will be debuted soon and we're really excited about them! We're also really excited about our 2016 calendar, which is available for pre-order right now!
Eek. I better get back to work.
