Oh the DRAMA!!! Bringing my Cameo back to life!


OMG, last week I thought I lost my Cameo. I was so sad! I had nightmares about never ever owning a Cameo again because they are so expensive and well, I don't work anymore so my craft budget is limited!

After posting my sad, sad news on the Silhouette Plus Forum, some of the ladies suggested I tried a new power supply cord. This never occurred to me because 1, there was a storm that burned part of my computer, 2, the power supply cord I had on my Camie was BRAND SPANKING NEW! It was a new cable that was sent to me after I found out my previous cable was recalled for being a "bootlegged" one (we are on cable #3 over here...HELLO! Silhouette America, can you make a more sturdy one?) 

Anyways, fast forward to TODAY! A lovely lady from a local yard sale group has a Cameo, she asked me to teach her how to use her machine before and I kindly asked, well...more like begged her :D to let me borrow her cable to check if that was the problem and sure enough! That was IT! The cable got fried, either with the storm or whatever...who knows and right now WHO CARES!!! My Camie is alive and she has company!!!
 Check inside!
