I have a cute post to put up. It involves cookies and cupcakes and Christmas. But I can’t. I think my camera is broken. Dead. Unresponsive. Lifeless. And my photos are on it. Well, they’re on the compact flash card, not actually the camera. Now, I know why people have card readers. I used to think they were unnecessary, since cameras come with a cable to connect to your computer. Not anymore.

Tomorrow… get a card reader. And maybe … I can hardly say the words… a camera. Hopefully, it’s just teasing me and it decides to start working in the morning. But, seeing as how I dropped it earlier today, things aren’t looking too good. Just wish I had noticed it wasn’t working before now. Ughhhh!

Kerplunk and camera do not mix.

In the meantime, enjoy this Cakespy stop animation cupcake video I did a while ago. And smile.

Hey–just a suggestion, Dear One (love your website and can’t stand the thought of no pictures!!!!!)–if you have a newer printer–they have slots on the front that allow you to download your pics…..

Aww :( Well I hope your camera decides to start working! I have a camera related delema too. Not a broken one, but forgetting my card reader and card in another city, so I can’t upolad any pictures! But yes, definatly get a reader!

Another good reason to get a card reader is that it saves the life of your camera. Just a idea. I just learned this myself not long ago. Good Luck. Love your Blog.

Always use a card reader. Downloading your images directly from our camera puts a huge drain on your camera’s battery. I hope your camera feels better, if not, treat yourself to a new one and just consider it a holiday present to yourself!

That’s a really cute video!

Hopefully your camera woes will be fixed soon. I love the card reader, but I find that I just cannot stand looking for a cable and climbing all over my desktop computer to plug it in. It’s easier with our battery hog of a camera to just use a card reader!

Thank you for that darling video! I just sat and watched it with my five boys (ages 2-14) and all of us loved it. My 2-year-old (who is just learning to talk) laughed out loud several times and said, “dooce!” (meaning juice–he doesn’t know what Coke is yet). Very fun and well done. Thanks for making us smile!

So sorry about your camera! Maybe a miracle will happen and it will heal on its own :0)

What camera do you have your eye on?

Sorry about your camera! I don’t know what I would do if mine ever broke. You said your pictures are on a card…they should slide into a slot on your computer (unless your computer is really old) and you could pull the pictures off that way. I’ve never had to buy a card reader because I can always just pop my card into the laptop!!!

I am so sorry to hear about the camera. That totally sucks! Your pics are always so amazing. I hope it is just one of those flukes that remedies itself on its own.

On a side note, how was dinner with PW Sunday night? She twittered about it and I am waiting to see which one of you blogs about it first. I hope you don’t think this is stalker talk but to be a fly on the wall would be amazing. You ladies come up with such wonderful ideas and recipes that make my mouth water.

You are such a talented photographer- you could take a great picture with a 5 dollar disposable camera!

As for my wish list, I’m hoping for some fancy knitting needles….

This holiday I would love a chance to visit my old friends at home…and a pair of new boots!

It’s a bummer about your camera. Hubby bought me a new one and a computer with a card reader when decorated cookies started to take over!!!! Love all your ideas, keep them coming.

I would just like my husband to have his health back. He has been chronically ill for 8 years.

Dear Unlucky Ella,
I hate lost picture/broken camera moments. I accidently erased my son’s birth pictures recently. I was just sick about it. I ended up swallowing my pride (these were BIRTH pictures afterall) and asking a guy I dated ten years ago, who is a computer whiz, if he could help get them back. He was able to recover most of them thank goodness!!!
