Blog Hop - Cameo Creations Fall Theme


Hello Everybody!

Today is Blog Hop day for the Cameo Creations DT, come join us and enter your projects for a chance to win awesome prizes.

I have some good and bad news for you. Good news: Our vacation and 10th Wedding Anniversary/Renewal of vows was fantastic! Although traveling while pregnant and having to take care of a rumbustious 2 year old girl is a lot of work but I managed to survive the journey. Luckily, my husband is an awesome daddy and he took care of my daughter most of the time. My six year old is an experienced world traveler so for her walking, customs and sightseeing is like second nature lol.

Now the bad news :(


My cameo decided to take sick leave for this hop. How awful! I came back from our vacation on Monday, hooked everything up to get it ready for Tuesday when I had planning on cutting and finishing up my fall project and guess what? My power cord had a boo-boo! It was broken! I contacted support and they told me to find a standard power supply for laptops and even gave me some specifications...off I went on my search for said power cord, I didn't find it at Radio Shack, they highest power cord they sell is 19v and the Cameo requires a 24v cord. And no, the silhouette store DOES NOT SELL replacements! I was devastated!


You can see a little bit of the boo-boo on this pic, right on the bottom where the cable that goes into the cameo broke :(

Then I went to Battery's Plus and found the power cord and guess how much it was for half of it? $59.99 plus tax! And that was buying the cheapest off brand cord because the best quality one was $89.99!!!

I made a post on the Silhouette Plus forum telling the ladies about this tragedy (for me, lol) and they were astonished to know that the Silhouette store does not sell a replacement part and that they sent me in the dark to find for one. Debbie, who is an angel, contacted support and they offered me a new power cord. Luckily, my cameo is still under warranty, phew!

So, now I am here staring at my computer and just enjoying the awesome projects the Cameo Creations DT have made for your enjoyment. I hope you can join us and maybe win the prizes we have for you.

Here is the link to the Cameo Creations Challenge Blog, enter your project and leave some blog love to the ladies and don't forget to become a fan of our Facebook page and follow the blog too.

I will see you soon with another amazing project done with my cameo. Hopefully, the power cord Silhouette America is sending me will arrive today or Monday :D

I want to give infinity thanks to Debbie (BTW, follow her blog because she has awesome freebies and tutorials for you!) and to Silhouette America, they have never disappointed me because they have an unbelievable respect for their customers and we really feel valued and loved by them. Thank you very much to those who work so hard for us to be able to enjoy this awesome machine.

See you soon!
