Hi Again! Finally, it looks like my computer is usable. At this moment the “bugs” are out after another 25 hours of technical support!
However, if I spend another 10 seconds on this computer I think my husband will divorce me! LOL!
This whole Dell experience has been horrible. I spent hundreds of hours on the phone with technical support since March 30th, which is the day I received my computer!
I will create a post later this evening for all of you, so I can spend time with my family today. Check back tomorrow….I will have a NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT for you. I will also try to get my pictures organized so I can post a project for you too!
I am sure you will see a lot more of me now that my computer works!
I probably will not be posting until after Sunday : (
I have had an insane number of problems with my new Dell laptop from the moment I received it 2 months ago. Recently they sent me an external hard drive to back up my files, because the online backup (part of my warranty) didn’t work. Then I reformatted my hard drive, and put everything back on, which took me a total of 12 hours on the phone on Thursday! Now my email program doesn’t work right and freezes on me!! I spent an additional 5 hours on the phone last night with them offering to help me reformat my hard drive again!! I don’t know what is going to happen next?
If anyone has a personal connection with someone from DELL, please share that info with me!!
I have only had customer service as bad as this from Charter Communications, who I left for Verizon. I still don’t have a guarantee that they will replace my laptop even though there has been something wrong with it from the day I purchased it until now.
Anyway, sorry to ramble…I am just so upset about this! If you need to contact me I am reachable at 413-245-3030 anytime before 10PM EST. I cannot post pictures right now, because I am too nervous to take any pictures off my camera and add them to this computer. I am already receiving errors that my files are corrupted and some are missing!!
I strongly suggest to anyone thinking of buying a DELL computer in the future…DON’T.
I have loved my DELL’S in the past, but never had a problem with them. I guess as long as you don’t have a problem they are great. But, when you do have a problem they will blame it on everyone else to avoid actually offering the “exceptional customer service experience they claim to offer!!
I am definitely making formal complaints about this!
I hope to be back to stamping soon! Please check back evey couple of days…there is a lot coming up soon.New catalog, convention, retired accessories list…You won’t want to miss all that!!
Today officially ends the first week of Summer Vacation! Usually the first week of Summer is spent getting the kids used to spending all day with each other…lots of arguments and crying. Actually this week went quite well with the kids, it was my husband that tired me out. And not in the way you are thinking!!!
After taking my son out of the tub last night, he stubbed his toe and broke it! At first he didn’t want to go to the hospital, and I wasn’t going to push it…until I saw that his toe was now at a 90° angle from the rest of his foot! So he whined for a few minutes that he didn’t want to go to the hospital because there was nothing they could do. But, obviously, the toe needed to be reset so he gave in. My husband is one of those men that “don’t feel pain” and is a “man’s man”. So he drove himself to the hospital in his car, which is a standard shift, even though I told him to take my car which is automatic.
After he left I started to laugh…Right before he left I told him he needed ice on the toe. The only soft ice pack I could find was a “boo, boo, bear” from the kids. It fit perfectly in his sock. SO hear he was the tough man that didn’t need anyone to drive him to the hospital and the first thing the nurse/doctor was going to see was the “boo, boo, bear” in his sock!!! LOL! He said they got a kick out of that too!
Due to recent events, I haven’t had much time to stamp or blog! So, here is a card that I made back in March at a demo meeting. I absolutely love this card! It was my introduction to Sticky Cut Letters and Cosmo Glitter. I am waiting to see what colors are in the next catty, because Cosmo glitter is definitely on my wish list.
The Sparkly letter “h” is placed on Soft Sky card stock. “Happy Everything” is from the Fundamental Phrases stamp set, an is stamped in Blue Bayou Classic Ink. The Sky Blue Card stock layer is matted onto Blue Bayou Card stock and finally adhered to the Whisper White Card Base. Lastly, Blue Bayou Double-Stitched Ribbon is tied around the card front. Nice quick and simple card with a lot of bling! Trust me, pictures do not do this card justice, the glitter is gorgeous.
A few tips:The Sticky cut letters are just like Sticky Strip, and it can be hard to take off the backing at first. A bone folder can help pull back the backing. Also, I suggest adhering the letter to the card stock before adding the glitter. Once the letter is adhered to the card stock, take off the top layer and add glitter. Even though it may take a minute or two to take the backing off the letter, it is so worth it!
There are some very pretty colors of glitter in the Spring-Summer Collection check them out here. Place your orders now in case they are gone forever when the new catalog comes out. Email me at email@example.com to place your order.
Have a great weekend!
