K8memphis & Sandra smiley...thank you..K8, you're quite right - how strange (couldn't resist trying to reply with just a dot to see for myself), and Sandra - I have put pics up but I am not good at these things so I have no idea where they are :)
ollie-c-- I think it might have something to do with the spam slams we sometimes get -- some kind of up front defense they break through sometimes -- if it happens all you have to do is go to your own account or any member's account and look for your posts and you can still follow along
I think I was on the forum for about four months before I was finally able to reply. But just keep trying every once in awhile and eventually your replies will start to go through. :) You should be able to see your photos if you click on "my account" and then go to your gallery. Your cakes are really nice. I love the unicorn one!
