Sock Monkey and Sizzix Update...

We'll start off with my new preview set...Sock Monkey!


(Note the banner is made from the party hats...)



Yesterday...I opened up...THE CUTTLEBUG. And wow...is it fine! It even cut out those sizzlits that BROKE my Sizzix machine. I bought the cuttlebug and stuck it behind the couch. I thought I'd just buy it with Michael's 4th of July 50% off coupon. I'd wait and see...maybe returning the cuttlebug if I couldn't get the Sizzis to function properly.

Meanwhile, emails back and forth with Sizzix, them admitting it would break when using their own product, and then they paid to have me ship it back to them to "look at it."

So the green Cuttlebug sat for 2 weeks....And yesterday, I gave in and opened it up and played with it. TWENTY FOUR hours later...I get an email from Sizzix. Not only are they replacing my machine...they UPGRADED it to the Sizzix Big Kick...which is essentially the same type of machine as the Cuttlebug. What stinky luck is that?

Seriously, I had thought that *maybe* they'd replace the big old red machine...and **MAYBE** I'd get an upgrade. But after a while, I figured I was just making it all up. And lo and behold...I was right. Just not right about my timing! haha.

So..now the delimma begins. Do I sell the BigKick? Keep it? What?

just so you know I could read your draft in my google reader but it doesnt show up on your blog..

I also have been having troubles with my husband and the worst part is He doesn't remember! or says I didn't do/say that!

This past week he tried to keep me in a room, and took away the phones, internet and wrecked my computer (as he felt I loved all these things more then him)

We are in counseling and I'm praying that God would transform him! praying for you too girl!

It's a tough choice. Since the cuttlebug is open, I'd try selling the Big Kick. You might get enough to pay for the CB and buy a few new dies/folders!
