I need your input

Help! I have been through 2 e machines in the last 3 years. The first let me down when it had a bad virus. Paid $100. To have it fixed to find out that they ( repair) removed the driver for my pictures. Ugh! The most important!!!! So I picked up another e machine on sale 2 years ago and now my windows photo gallery is corrupted.
You think I would have learned from the first e machine. We have a main computer but that's hubby's.
We are in the office back to back ..... So I always used e machines with a large monitor.
So I have an iPad , can I post and download pictures.  Wait I am posting....does anyone use their ipad for blogging and if you do how do I retrieve pictures to clean up and watermark. ....
Much help is appreciated.
Or do I need a new laptop?

Bringing Home the Tree





                                                   


                                                    My newest painting!

                   It all started when I showed my hubby this cute pillow
                              by Lucy @ Craftberry Bush .....

                                  Red Christmas Beetle.....
                     
                 

                            He asked if I would paint him a throw pillow
                                with his 49 ford pick up truck on it...

                    So I started out sketching on paper and with his input
                                    we had a rough outline of his truck.

                                  Out came the paints and the fabric...

                                             The rest is history!              

                       Thank you for coming by and leaving a message!

Christmas Tree Flocked






                                                    



                              Well I'm up and running....glitch fixed....fingers crossed..
                                    If you read in my last post I couldn't retrieve pictures..


                                    I love the look of Flocked Christmas trees and
                                        wreaths but not the price.... so I thought
                                              I would try and do some flocking on my own....


                                     First up a $store tree nothing to loose if it didn't turn out right!

                                            I had googled flocking and there are so may sights
                                                to choose from ....they were all different....

                                          I gathered my supplies:
                                      
                                          white spray paint
                                           stuffing cotton
                                          flurries (paper snow)
                                          a can of spay snow........
                                                          

                                       I tore off pieces of cotton and shoved it on the branches and
                                        I thought that all I had to do now is spray paint and there
                                                     I would have a magnificent tree
                                                                      NOT!



                                                                       



                                          Ok on to the next....the wreath I purchased years ago on sale..
                                             
                                              By the way I'm doing this outside in below 0 temperature on the
                                                           back deck out of the wind......

                                                laid down my cloth and wreath and continued to spray paint
                                                           till most was covered...
                                                Now while the paint was still wet I added the flurries....
                                                         


                                                                   


                                                  No didn't like how that looked ...
                                                       needed more white paint......
                 
                                                      Ok this is where the spray snow comes in....

                                                       Gave it a good spray and then finished off
                                                                with more white paint.

                                                    Let it dry...well that wasn't going to happen too
                                                                    cold....
  
                                                             So I hung it in the basement to dry....

                                                            A couple of days later I was amazed!!!!!!

                                                                      Didn't turn out too bad at all!!
                                          
                                                                 Added a large plaid flannel bow and
                                                                          hung it in the great room.....

                                                                                       

                                 ******* * if you try out this method don't hold me
                                                        responsible for your wreath or tree not
                                                              turning out!!!  ****

                                                     
                                                          Have fantastic weekend!
