Apologies to all…

Hello Everyone,

I’d like to take a moment and apologize. It’s been two months since I last posted. I realize you were waiting for Little Treasures to finish up and for that I am sorry it hasn’t been posted.

The day after my last post on Dec 8th, I found out that my credit card info had been stolen. It took just over a week to get that all straightened out, but my bank was a godsend getting the money back into the account as soon as it could. It’s not easy because we can’t just walk into the bank to fix the problems, everything had to be faxed and mailed to us for the signatures and such. Just as I got that all fixed I had two reports of malware on this site in my email. It’s a very scary thing to realize that people can just send a file into your host and have it send you somewhere else, or take your information. I didn’t want anyone visiting my site until I knew the problem was fixed, so that went on for several weeks. I now have placed scanning plugins into the site itself to scan for malware. For those of you just checking your websites out on virus scanners like I did before, don’t trust it, add your site on google’s web developer service and have it run a scan if you don’t want to use plugins. It will tell you what files need to be fixed on your site. I still run google, because they ultimately will shut me off like they did before if malware is found.

So, I was writing the post for Little Treasures (it’s half way done) and I went to take a final picture for the site of the dolls. I needed to give them a little iron, so I was ironing and somehow when I lifted the iron it fell out of my hand, and I grabbed it with my other hand not even thinking in the process. Suffice it to say, the hand was burned badly and I couldn’t do a thing with it for the last month. The doctor has cleared me now to sit in front of a pc for hours at a time and sew again, so all is good on that front.

I have a blog hop obligation on Monday, tuesday Little Treasures October and November will be online.  With December to follow within the week. I still need to do some writing on the documentation for December, but it won’t take so long.

I wish to thank you all for concerns, the time you took to write me and I do again humbly apologize, I didn’t post because at the time I didn’t want anyone visiting my site during the malware thing and I probably should have posted, but I wasn’t thinking about how to handle all that and when I hurt my hand I then just couldn’t post.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding,

Marian

  1. Marian, I hope that you are on the mend after all your trials! I am glad to know that you were able to get through all that and you were able to find a way to keep yourself protected online. I am happy to hear you are continuing on with the Little Treasures despite all the problems you have had. I for one definitely think they are worth the wait. Please stay safe and well!

  2. Marian, I am truly sorry for all you have been through. How horrible it must have been to burn your hand as you did. A burn seems to be more painful than anything I know. I hope all is well with you now. I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Big hug!
