Tea and Keyboards

Every morning I make myself a cup of tea that I drink while I check my email and other things related to my Etsy shop. Well this morning I did not finish my tea since most of it ended up on my keyboard. I was quite horrified at first. I quickly unplugged the keyboard and turned it upside down to try and drain as much of the liquid as possible. After throughly drying it I was still not able to save it. I was glad that I did not damage anything else. Soon after this fiasco I headed to Tekserve, Apple specialists, and purchased a new keyboard for $30 dollars. My old keyboard was about 7 years old so I was due a new one anyway. So now I'm back home typing away on my clean crumb-free new keyboard. I probably should invest in one of those clear plastic keyboard covers though!

Ouch! I constantly spill something while eating and trying to help my 3 year old with dinner at the same time, but keyboards are safe so far. I guess congrats on the new one, though! :)

funny. The same thing happened to me about a month ago but with chocolate milk and ended up with some very sticky keys.

Thanks for your vote

Ugh, tea & keyboards don't mix well. Sorry girl. Good you upgraded your keyboard though, the keystroke feel on the new apple ones are awesome! I hope to be upgrading soon too, hrm, maybe I'll go brew some ginger tea...?

Ohh bummer, luckely it was an old keyboard!
I did something like that too, but mine was a glass of sprite on my laptop :S Luckely the flued did no harm as I did the same like you did. But it never writes the same anymore a bit sticky because of the sugar :)

I did a simialr thing with my morning coffee about 3 months ago, Elisa! I tried to dry out the keyboard to no avail and had to get a new one too! Such a drag because it happens when you don't expect it to and upsets the applecart!
Enjoy your new keyboard!

Thank you for vosotong my blog. It's nice to see your name in the comments!

If it's any consolation to you, a separate iMac keyboard costs 50 euros over here...
But I still like to eat my breakfast while surfing, it is just sooooo comfy!
Lucky it was an older keyboard.

That's me in Miami Beach, Florida!


I'm back from a fantastic road trip around the South East, USA!  My partner and I started in NYC and went south on Interstate 95 down to Miami Beach, Florida. We made many stops along the way to amble about and see the sites. In honor of this wonderful trip I decided to have a Giveaway! The Giveaway will be my Saddle Bag, pictured to your left, filled with a few souvenirs ( a surprise!) from my trip. To enter the giveaway all you need to do is follow my blog and post a comment about your favorite vacation at the end of this post.  That's it! I'll pick one winner at random (I will use random.org) this coming Monday. Good luck!

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!
