Hello everyone! I am thrilled to have you visit with me and I hope you enjoy your stay. I absolutely love company, sharing, and making new friends so I hope you find something here that inspires, motivates, or just pleases you in some way.

Of course, I love to visit and be inspired also. So if I don't already drop in on you, please let me know where I can find you and I'll hop on over to see what you're doing or to just say "hi".

Before you go, I would love it if you'd please leave me a comment letting me know you dropped in! Actually, I'd just love to hear from you -- comments, opinions, or questions you'd like me to answer.

In the meantime, relax and make yourselves at home... you're family here!!!

I'll be seeing you!

Good day, everyone!  Hope all's all and bright your way!!!

I wanted to drop in to let you know a couple of things.  First..., what I feared most when I removed the word verification box from my blog posts has happened.  I am receiving numerous spam mails, and my blog and email has been compromised.  Emails are going out under my name/email address that I am not sending.  If you receive any emails that are "uncomprising" and/or inappropriate, please know that I would not ever send you anything of that sort.

Second, I have noticed that when an attempt to download a file from my cut.files drop-down box, it is requesting a password.  I do not know why this is happening, and I've contacted 4Shared for an immediately remedy and/or response.  I will let you know when this matter is resolved so that you can continue to download the files I've made for you.

Again, I am looking into both these matters. If you would like any of my available cut.files, please email me at audreyfrel@sbcglobal.net and I'll email  files until this issue has been resolved.

I'm off now to complete a project I've been working on, so I'll be seeing you!

P.S.  Don't forget to stay tuned, as I mentioned on my previous post, I have a nice little surprise coming
         up for you very soon now!

Well thats odd. I am sorry your having trouble. Keeping us in suspense huh? I see you are! Since you come up with such great projects I'll be patient. Hugs!

I had the same problem when I turned off word verification, Audrey. I was getting tons of spam. But I went to settings, and under "posts and comments", where it says "who can comment", if you check "registered users", it completely fixed my problem. I'm not getting the spam anymore. Hope this helps!!

I hope you are doing well and having a wonderful week :)

Oh no....sorry you have been having problems! Hope you get things all taken care of quickly. Girl, you have been SO busy! Love your recent projects, and can't wait to see tomorrow's project! Have a good night!

Oh Audrey, I hate that you are having problems again. Been there too. I can't update any of my Cricut machines, my posts won't go live when I schedule them, my calendar will not load and I have too many other things going on right now to deal with it all. Hee! Hee! I feel your pain. Tell you what, I will pray for you and you throw one in for me. That is probably all we need, right? Big hugs!

Oh Boy Audrey....what a bummer with the spam....isn't it a pain that some people have nothing better to do than ruin it for the rest of us? I have not been able to craft lately as my mother is in the hospital and I have been with her from morning to late evening. My brother was able to give me a much needed break this evening. I was to go to a crop this Saturday but it all depends on whether she stays or goes home by then....Thank you for visiting my blog and saying hello!

Oh no! I hope the spamming stops...I so hate the new two word verification...too difficult to read, I generally have to select new words a couple of times before I can read them! I don't know why people have to be so cruel and make it so difficult for us to enjoy our blogging time!
