Problems uploading files

For the last month or so I have been unable to upload my files to redbubble on my computer, and the only way for me to do it was to use Barb’s laptop with the image on flashdrive.

So check your antivirus program … you may just find the solution there, I did.
(ps thanks Barb for the suggestion……and I’ll never hear the end of it….)

A big, big THANK YOU!

I have checked my overview and found that some wonderful person (or persons) has bought some of my work today – 3 mounted prints and 2 cards. Whew! I am gobsmacked – and very thrilled that you like my work enough to buy it, whoever you are!!
