Gina K Illustrator Blog Hop

So I have a lovely card and story for you….but I can’t show the card.  I have misplaced the card reader for my camera….with my card in it!  I am just heartbroken about the hundreds of photos I have on that card that I hadn’t downloaded.  I have always heard stories of people having this happen or having their card erased.  I thought, nah – that’ll never happen to me!  YES IT DID!  So please please PLEASE – download your photos OFTEN!  Even if you don’t edit them or whatever right away!

For now I will just tell my story and show my book…..and you can just imagine the card.  I’ll get a new card tomorrow and take a photo and load it as soon as I can.  Unless (insert lots of prayers here!) I find the card and then I’ll do it right away!

My boys have always loved Sandra Boynton books.  They are so cute and funny.  I love them!  The Belly Button Book, But Not The Hippopotomas, and Barnyard Dance were some of our faves.  However, Andy adored Dinosaur’s Binkit.  We read it EVERY night.  So much that it literally fell apart.  Andy had a favorite blanket….and when he first started saying blanket to ask for it – he called it “Binkit”.  Well….it actually came out rhyming with the word “witch (which my mother had a field day with!! Thank you for that Mom!).   It was a funny 2 months until he learned to say it correctly!

Here is the book we loved:

And my card….well, just image a card made with Nina Brackett’s Nana’s Needlework stamp set…kind of primary colored with some Graphic 45 papers.  This is in honor of a baby quilt a friend made for Andy.  We still have it in their toy room.

To keep the inspiration going, check out these GinaK Designer’s joining in on the hop tonight:

  • Aw, Emily…so sorry for you…I can’ t even imagine the agony. Hoping you find your reader. I try to download often and don’t always have the luxury of working to far ahead of schedule…probably a good thing since I can’t remember anything! Will check back in case you find it…bet it’s awesome!

  • Oh I hope you find your camera chip, I would love to see the card! What a cute story and funny name for his blanket, lol! Kids are so innocent, I imagine you mom was a hoot hearing that for the first time :o)

    I took pics of my kids trick or treating on Halloween. We went to see my dad at the nursing home that night. He passed away 3 weeks later. Somehow, I never downloaded the Halloween photos. I didn’t realize this until after I had deleted them from my card on Thanksgiving Day. Yesterday I bought an Eye-Fi card for my camera that uploads pics automatically to my computer and to shutterfly (or another photo printing website – lots of choices). It only requires my computer and my camera to both be turned on and to be within 45 feet of each other. I don’t have to remove the card from my camera. No more lost photos!! I just have to go to the file on my computer with the pics and remember to back them up somehow incase my hard drive crashes. Or not really even that, since Shutterfly never deletes your pictures. I bought mine at, last week, where they put them on sale. There may be better deals out there if you google “Eye-fi”.

  • Sweet story! funny how Mum’s see the funny side of things they would have hated!!!! Sorry to hear about your camera card…..hope it turns up.

  • So sorry you lost that card! I love your creations, hopefully you will find it soon and then you can post them to your blog. I’d love to see them. P.S. look in the cushions of the couch!
