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.

The Rainbow Bridge

Had to say goodbye to my sweet Anni this past Tuesday. She had been sick for several weeks and after my Vet confirmed that she would not get better only worse, I decided I could not let her suffer. So at around 2 pm she traveled to the rainbow bridge. She had been my buddy for more than 15 years. 

NYC 2007
When I first started sewing she would often sit right next to the sewing machine occasionally swatting at the lose thread at the end of my fabric. My partner walked by one day and said " Are you being a pesky little cat Anni?" That stayed in my mind so when it was time to name the shop, "Pesky Cat Designs" seemed perfect. She was actually far from pesky, with such a sweet and gentle demeanor.

I will never forget my little sweetie. She will be in my heart forever.

10 Year Anniversary

October this year was Pesky Cat Designs 10 year Anniversary! Although I've had an outside job for all those years I always made time for my creative endeavors. I have a Bachelor of Science degree but did originally attend an university of the arts. I painted for many years and then later discovered my love for creating handbags. This month I had two sales from a customer that has purchased 18 handbags from my shop! It really made my day to realize I have so many loyal customers. They have made it possible for me to keep creating and doing what gives me so much joy!
