It has been an 'interesting' week
Monday started it all. My computer was toast. Went to town, stopped at the post office, an apparently lost my spare set of keys - IN my Jeep. Still haven't found my keys. Then, to top it off, dropped my cell phone in the toilet. Finally retrieved that, drained the water out of it, screen and all still worked, tried charging it, as it was low anyway. Long story short, finally got it to actually charge for more then half an hour at a time and get back to 'normal', after a couple of days. It doesn't beep after it is charged now, otherwise seems to be OK.
Then yesterday I realized the horror part. I am currently making major revisions of most of my cane handle designs, revisions of my figure bank design, and a couple of other projects. And all my sketches and photos are on my computer. Can't print any of them, which will be essential, but that is no biggie and can be taken care of. No, the real problem is, I can't access any of the information I will need. Oh, I can get along without it, but only by taking a LOT longer to redo all my previous work. Right now I am typing this on the laptop I bought a week or so ago, and my son set up for me, and brought it back on Tue or Wed.
I'm sure there is SOME way to access the files, but to call me computer illiterate would be very polite. The son says a mother board is fried, and as I bought it off of evilBay, I should just buy another.
The Gods will have their little joke.
Once I get up and running again, I will need to get some paper that I can print a few designs on (inkjet printer), and then when I glue it down, the paper will turn invisible, or close enough. I've been looking and thought onion skin paper would work, but then found sites saying that tracing paper would be even better. Any valid information on this would be very appreciated.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
