Emptiness :(

Pin It

There is an emptiness in My Cricut Closet. I'm very sad.
Can you guess what these two pictures are?

 (I'm using my Cricut mats to hide my ugly wall)

The first picture is where my Imagine sits and the second picture is where my E2 sits... ok... DID sit. :(
My Imagine start acting funky so I called Provo Craft. I have to send it off for them to work on. If they can't fix it they are going to replace it. They definitely have excellent customer service.  I generally use my Imagine more than anything. So... I got my E2 and started to use it... it wouldn't come on. This was about 2 weeks after my Imagine pooped out. So I call Provo Craft again and they say it's not fixable. They have to replace it. Sad thing.... my E2 is the Anniversary Edition that came with the extra cartridges. They don't have any more of those so I am getting a replacement of just a regular E2. Supposedly they are going to try and get me the extra carts. Maybe digitally on Cricut Craft Room. Not sure how that's going to work.

Of course... I was supposed to send them off a while back. I kept putting it off. Not sure why. I guess I was working so much that I just didn't get it done. So now they are both leaving. :( What am I going to do without them? I have no ideo how long it's going to take to get them back.

But guess what!?!?!?!? I still have my other Expression. I'll just have to pull it out of the closet.

My DH bought this for me several years ago. All I had at the time was the ORIGINAL Cricut. YES!!! I've been in love with Cricut since they came out. I was at CHA when they first introduced it. Wish I still had my pic with Cricut. I sadly sold the original one after moving to my current house. BUT... I sold it to a lady that would never have been able to afford one on her own so it went to a very good home. I remember being SO SO SO excited about it. It was awesome. And that was just the 6x12 mat.

I wonder how long the updates are going to take? LOL! It hasn't been updated for maybe 2 years. Thank goodness for Cricut Craft Room and Gypsy! LOL!

I don't know if this is good news or bad... but while I'm waiting for my Imagine to come back... there is a HUGE empty spot on my desk. I guess that gives me LOTS of room for my stamping. Like I said... that could be good or bad. I'm a very messy crafter.

Well... I hope you don't forget to check out the giveaway video and enter to win. I think I have like only 10 of my followers that are entered. I have some YouTube subscribers entered as well. Good luck!!!

Happy Crafting!

  1. Hi Angie, I found your blog on Youtube, I haven't watched the videos yet, because I was trying to find the 1st video for the Cricut Craft Room, I am to tired to watch them now but I will go back when I am not so tired. I am so lost when it comes to the craft room, and seriously need help. Thanks for making the videos, and I am sorry to see that you have been sick, along with your Cricuts, I hope you are all feeling better soon Karen♥ karens-kakes-krafts.blogspot.com

    1. Thanks... I LOVE the Craft Room. I'm so glad that I can still get on CCR and design even though I don't have my Cricuts. I'll have all kinds of stuff ready to cut and print when they get back. I hope you get a chance to watch the videos. I'm just heading to bed myself. It's been a long day. Thanks for the well wishes:)

      Here is a link to my first CCR video. Hope this helps. Let me know if it does. Would love to hear back from you.
