Christmas Countdown Error

Hi Stampers,

I recently upgraded my computer and now am having problems uploading my pictures to add to my posts.  Please check back after the weekend and I will catch up on this weeks posts.  I'm hoping my 15 year old granddaughter can figure this out for me...you know they are so...computer literate compared to me.  
Please stop back by as I have several more Christmas items, gift wrap, tags and gifts to share with you.
Has this ever happened to you?  If so, leave a message and I will give each of you a special gift.
