Chocolate Cherry Bonbon Heart Set + Matching Background

At last!
Our series of chocolate heart sets for your visual sweet tooth continues this afternoon with our second set, this time all about chocolates with cherry filling. It's basically the same set as our first one, but with a few changes, including colorway. The marble is from an antique book cover of the Victorian era.
You can expect to see another one upcoming, in a slightly creamier style. 
I'm  especially fond of this particular set, as it was inspired by a Studio affiliate from the Great Plains, who has a real passion for cherries and chocolate.
:)
We hope she won't find herself having too big a craving for her favorite chocolate cherry cordials after seeing this post.
Anyway, here it is, with matching marble diamond background for your use.
For the first in this series, you can go HERE.
Happy Chocolate Creativity!

Serious Tech Issue

Dear Friends:
Today is January 10, 2012.
Our apologies for not visiting you all with comments, etc., as well as for seldom answering your emails.
Here's what's wrong.
We are currently experiencing a heavier-than-usual tech issue which escalated over the weekend, and then redoubled yesterday.
The Studio's work horse computer is a Mac which has been invaded by a developing virus which has crashed it too many times to count.
Tomorrow afternoon, we'll hopefully have everything under control again.
This will require serious overhauling, including some uninstalling and fresh installation of software after scanning for virus activity.
We are unusually careful anymore, having discovered how Macs may indeed be invaded, even if firewalls are turned on. We have added extra security over time, and routinely perform multiple scans of the HD and EXHD, yet somehow this got in under our guard before we were quite prepared to handle it.
The computer I'm currently driving is an old laptop which miraculously (after much coaxing and a certain amount of fuss) finally would allow protective downloads at Microsoft. But we are concerned this may not have been enough, and thus won't be online for much longer than needful.
Whatever struck the Mac is still at large.
We want to urge any Mac users to please be extra careful with their machines today.
It is a well known fact in the tech industry that Macs are not impervious to viral problems like this one. In fact, even Apple tech folks can tell you it's doable for anyone bothering who might be aware enough of Mac technology.
There are currently free downloads available (our first one was Sophos, now at Apple's website), along with industry software available which can scan Macs and even isolate and get rid of spybots, etc.
Please do not think you are exempt.
That just isn't the case anymore, as our situation illustrates.
Tomorrow's appointment with an Apple Care Tech should help us clean up our workhorse and make it run properly again.
Wish us luck!
We'll surely keep you posted as to any upshot.
Till then, we hope you'll coninue to enjoy our many image sets and singles, and perhaps share with others what you've found that pleases you.
Thank You for visiting us today with your---
Happy Creativity

A Chance to Own Some Special Artwork

I have been very fortunate in my time blogging. 
In only 3 days, PPS will have been up and running for one whole year, and during that time, we've met many new people, become friends with a lot of you, and gotten to know personally a few fellow bloggers as well.
It's been a long haul since the old days, when hardly anything was doable for those of us then involved here at the Studio. While our ranks did change up over the summer, and new friends did join our fun, those changes seem to have only made the commitment to excellence continue.
We are learning nearly every day how to better serve you, including how to make our images more workable for the average visitor here.
One of the many benefits of blogging would have to be the wonderful gifts and/or prizes others offer. Over at Artfully Musing, for example, lovely works of art get offered fairly frequently, all of them really quite exceptional.
I am now the lucky holder of one of the prizes from last month, which Artfully Musing's Laura Carson carefully posted to the Studio's office, and which arrived in perfect condition.
Isn't it a thing of beauty?



I think it's gorgeous!
:)
This will be a part of the decorative touches in the office next Christmas.
Thank You, Laura, for sharing such beauty with this ardent admirer of your work! I take such pleasure in visiting your blog for each new post. Your work truly inspires me.

More New Year's Fun!

We have only recently been able to add to the scene at our sister blog, Steam Tea Travels, where you can find lots of ephemera sets and images free for download. We've put our own special spin on our last two posts, in which you'll find links to the collage set we've sampled below.
Happy Travels!
Rose & Rhissanna

set (and a lot more to choose from!), please follow the links posted HERE.

You are free to:
Use these in your personal art, whether for sale or for personal use.

We found the basis for this set online, then fixed up its look, picked and chose, and then made our arrangement.
