ArtsaleBravura Robbed

This was tough, but it's now behind us. While traveling in San Francisco early in the month, our rental car was broken into, our backpacks stolen, and we lost passports, my wallet and all credit cards, two laptops, and iPad, AirPods, my Kindle, my medications, and some precious irreplaceable items. But it was all insured, I have a new laptop and restored it from a pre-trip, but recent backup (we had to wait because we had to close all our credit cards and our bank accounts, since checks were stolen), and while I have been ill for the last week, I am starting to feel myself again with replaced prescriptions and some rest.
Lessons learned - keep those backups up to date, never leave anything in a car, even if the car is locked and nothing is visible, and maybe stay out of San Francisco (this part is really tough for me, feeling bad about my former home that I loved).

ArtPlay Bravura Collection ** ON SALE**
Wordy FotoBlendz Template No 1
The ArtPlay Bravura Collection was perfect because it is dark, and this documents a dark event and time. And Wordy FotoBlendz was perfect because I had a lot to say, just to get it off my chest. I wrote this in a new notebook (my scrapbook design notebook was in my backpack and stolen) before I had the new laptop.
I created a sketch of the broken window of the car and clipped this to the FotoBlendz, wrote out the story, then added Transfers and Word Art, as well as a MultiMedia FLower (from the Bravura Collection) just to make it feel dark and stormy and chaotic.

What a trial. Very glad you emerged out the other end and things are settling down. It really helps to journal about it--I can't read the writing, but the emotion radiates from the spread. You have given me the nudge I need to do my backups--I've been ignoring that task. So thanks for that! Onward!
 
Oh the stress, the heart breaks that humanity as a whole is not what we hoped. We can't go back to California now because of much less awful damage to our Jeep. Too many people. My first thought was fire, smoke, but your page exudes the distress. So sad, and it's not like a broken arm where people can see the damage and sign your cast. Hugs.
 
Diane, how heartbreaking! Your page is so evocative of the pain and distress but beautifully done. Wish the world weren't like that but so glad you're getting past it a bit.
 
Oh Diane!! What a time you've had!! You've captured the feeling of your experience perfectly though. Glad you are feeling better.
 
A terrible homecoming. I am sorry that this happened to you.
Wonderful art journaling.

If I hadn't had a backup, I would not be back here now. I know we can theoretically redownload everything from Oscraps, but I know I couldn't face that. iCloud for photos, external hard drive, and some redundancy, so important!
