A Broken Cuttlebug

 Hello stampers. I've been out of commission big time! My faithful 6 yr. old...I got the first one in my local Michaels, Cuttlebug broke. First, a month ago, it cracked and I taped it up and used it very carefully with decent results. But  2 weeks ago, I tried to use it with a Cheery Lyn Designs die and C R A C K...it was done for as the right side popped out and flew across the floor scaring my little chi-poodle mix nearly to death.

So, I thought I'd share a pic with you and let you know that I use this tool like EVERYDAY! Hence, no cards in quite some time.

The good news is that today, a dear stamping friend sold me her seldom gently used Cuttlebug. Now here's more news. I would be back to stamping first thing tomorrow, except that I'm taking a month-long hiatus from stamping. Yes, I'm leaving my stamping room. My pressure is up just thinking about it, but my eldest dd needs me to do some babysitting until she gets someone on a regular basis. They are in CA and I'm gonna drive out there Saturday morning all by myself...first  alone road trip ever. I am sooo looking forward to driving in my brand new Twilight...yes, the color really is called that, Honda CRV. I'm taking along my shared (with grandson) pooch Hoshi for company. She is the better of the three animals we have, when it comes to traveling.

To take the place of stamping should I get bored, which I rather doubt will happen in the company of a 4 yr. old, I'll be reading some of the numerous books I have on my Kindle, as well as reading blogs. Tomorrow, I will post a pic of a "special tech thingie" I spoiled myself with. Can you guess what it is? I'll give you a hint. Its stock went over $600 for just one today.

Hugs & Blessings,
Erica
