Summer shares her “flusterized” experience with an external hard drive failure that is absolutely heartbreaking and raw… she opens up about why she didn’t back up her photos and supplies and then tells us what she’s done to recover her data and how much it cost. We also talk about Christy’s big news, answer some organization questions from listeners, talk tech and get a run down on Paper Arts from Karen.
We’ll be back in September with new, improved episodes! If you have an idea for the show or question for any of us, leave a comment or send us a message using the form over on the right sidebar there ——>
